Viewing entries from Rachel Huffman
Rachel Huffman joined the Largemouth team as an intern in May 2012 and quickly become immersed in the work of many of Largemouth’s clients including Kangaroo Express, CORT and Hooters.
Currently a senior at North Carolina State University, Rachel is double majoring in history and communication with a concentration in public relations. Before coming to Largemouth, Rachel interned at the North Carolina Museum of History in their visitor services department, primarily working as a liaison between visitor groups and museum administration by leading and facilitating tours and assisting with children’s programs. She also assisted in planning and media relations efforts for the Celebrate NC Festival and American Indian Festival. Additionally, Rachel interned at 919 Marketing, immersing herself in public relations by writing press releases and media alerts, and conducting research.
Outside of work, Rachel is an avid runner, international traveler, lover of the outdoors and enjoys any opportunity to root for her beloved N.C. State Wolfpack!
As one of Largemouth’s newest summer interns, I was asked a very important question when meeting to discuss goals for her internship, “What exactly do you want to do when you graduate?”
Though I recognized this was a perfectly legitimate question for a student coming into the final year of an undergraduate career, I wasn’t able to respond truthfully. Like many of my peers, I was unsure what specific professional path I would like to take following graduation, but I do know that establishing my personal brand would be one of my top priorities – confident that once I fully understood my areas of expertise, and accrued diverse work experience, my career aspirations would become clear.
