UPROAR: What has Uproar taught you the most?
BRITTANY: I’ve learned how to be a strong PR professional, how to lead a team and drive success for our clients. Relationship-building with reporters and clients is especially important. After working on accounts over the years – some of them since I was an account coordinator – I’ve had the opportunity to build really amazing relationships with my clients. It’s been exciting to work and grow alongside them and be a part of their growth and success. On the media side, I’ve established relationships with key contacts who are always open to being pitched a story.
UPROAR: What has been the key to your success?
BRITTANY: Uproar values go-getters. I was consistently provided with opportunities to adapt and rise to challenges which enabled me to boost my career growth. Uproar’s structured professional development training and chances for hands-on experience helped me build confidence as a PR professional and nurture my leadership skills and expertise.
UPROAR: What has been a career highlight?
BRITTANY: One of the standout moments in my career was working hard to secure a full feature story in USA Today for a client. In addition to posting online, the piece published in the outlet’s print edition. Afterward, I was told by the client that they had grown up reading USA Today in print every Sunday and that having their company featured there was a dream come true. It really highlighted to me the impact of my work and made all those months of chasing and coordinating with the reporter worth it.
