Tell me about yourself
My name is Jaclyn Gabel. I am twenty-one years young, attending Central Michigan University where I will be graduating this December. I am a lover of all things fashion and beauty related, a (self-proclaimed) socialite in the making, and above all, I am an aspiring PR practitioner. I majored in public relations for many reasons, but I chose this field primarily because it is a job that never really feels like “work” to me. I am outgoing, hard-working and I am a people-person.
Where are you interning?
I am a proud intern at Love Publicity, a Detroit-based PR Boutique. Love Publicity focuses on the branding of its exclusive fashion, beauty, film & hospitality clientele. The team at Love Publicity has one main goal, and that is to always make sure our clients get results they deserve, as well as results that they are going to love.
What is your favorite part of PR?
I once heard a quote that stuck with me; “ If you find a job doing what you love, you will never work a day in your life”. This quote is exactly what public relations feel like for me. Along with learning how to network, I love being able to be the people person that I am, as a job. I have enjoyed every minute of completing the tasks I was given as a PR intern, and even more than that, I have loved learning and constantly picking up new skills that I will be able to put to good use everyday this field. As learning is one of the few constants in this world that I know to be for sure, it is one of my favorite things about myself that I not only love to do, but also make sure that I never take for granted.
What is your dream job?
My dream job is any job that lets me incorporate my love for fashion and beauty into the PR field.
What has been your favorite part of your internship so far? My favorite part of the internship thus far, has definitely been building a concrete relationship with the owner of Love Publicity, Teia. She has taught me not only a lot about public relations, and how to execute many of the tasks involved, but she has taught me things about myself as well. I know that with all she has taught me throughout the course of my internship, I would like to believe that I have also been able to teach her new things as well.
Is there any advice you would give to future interns?
I would advise future interns to stay organized, and to practice self-motivation. I have learned that those two skills are IMPERATIVE to have when working in public relations.
Where can we find you online?
You can find me on Instagram: JaclynGabel, on twitter and Love Publicity’s Instagram page, and my new personal blog that I will be launching in the near future.
