By

Today’s guest post is by Peppercomm senior account executive & Intern Committee member,Samantha Bruno. To read pt. 1 to this post, please click here.

In the last post, I offered tips and tricks for attending job/career fairs. Below is a look at our most recent adventure – a day trip to Washington D.C., where we attended the PR Council/Howard University Job Career Fair and conducted an information session at George Washington University.

Enjoy a timeline of a day in the life of the Intern Committee!

4:00 a.m. Wake-up calls!

6:45 a.m.  Our flight takes off from Newark, NJ 

8:00 a.m.  Landed at Ronald Reagan National Airport in desperate need of some breakfast!

10:00-4:00 p.m.  We attended the PR Council/Howard University Job Career Fair where we spent the day meeting with job candidates who were interested in pursuing a position in our summer internship program. Thank you to the PR Council for arranging this successful event!

4:30 p.m. We stopped to take in the beautiful designs that make up Howard University campus, before heading to George Washington University. Although it was snowing when we landed that morning, it had, thankfully, stopped once we got there!

5:30 p.m. Our short break warranted us kicking off our heels and enjoying a few Pop-tarts. Sometimes you just have to stop and refuel!

6:00-7:00 p.m. We hosted an information session at George Washington University. Thanks to GWU for hosting us!

8:00-9:00 p.m. For dinner, we found ourselves sitting back in the same airport restaurant at the same table we ate breakfast. Time to wind down before we board! 

9:21 p.m. So long Washington Monument…Newark, here we come!

11:00 p.m. Home sweet home! It was a long, but adventurous day.  Until next time- Julie and I need to get some sleep!

Take a look at our picture gallery to see us in action!
