When Old Friends Reunite

I go WAY back with &Barr, we’re actually old friends.

We were first introduced my sophomore year at the University of Central Florida when I was on a tour of local Orlando agencies. From that initial introduction I knew that &Barr and I were going to hit it off. Our relationship went to the next level the day that I was offered an internship the first semester of my senior year as a PR intern! My time as an intern was well spent. I got to work with many different clients and grow bonds with the &Barr PR team. But as all internships go, there was a time when I had to say goodbye. Another internship came and went after my time at &Barr and then I graduated! The views from graduation were quite nice but I was eager to get going into the workforce.

Well now I’m back and saying HELLO as &Barr’s newest account coordinator and the views have gotten even better. It’s honestly the most surreal feeling going from being a full time student to a full time employee. The transition from intern life is going to take some getting used to, but I just have to keep in mind that I spent the last four years preparing for this very moment. So it’s time to embrace it and go for it with my all.

My next chapter has just started and I’m more than happy that it’s with my old friend &Barr.
