Intern Spotlight: Natasha Sadek

By

Today we are getting to know Peppercomm intern Natasha Sadek!

 

natashaTell us about yourself—where did you/do you go to school, where are you from and what brought you to Peppercomm? 

Hi everyone, my name is Natasha! I graduated in May 2017 from Rutgers University with a degree in Journalism. I grew up in Hawthorne, a small town in northern New Jersey. After graduating I did not feel like I had enough real-life experience to land a full-time job so in my extensive search for an internship I found Peppercomm! The focus on company culture and the willingness to teach interns is what drew me to Peppercomm so I applied and here I am!

When you’re not hard at work at Peppercomm, what do you like to do?

My family and friends are most important to me so I try to spend as much time with them as I can on weekends. I also LOVE makeup. I’m always up to date on all the new collections and follow multiple beauty bloggers religiously. I’m not the best at it but I still like learning new techniques and improving my skills. When I’m having a bad day I’ll just do my makeup ULTRA glam and I’ll feel better. It’s therapeutic for me.

What area of the industry do you find the most appealing and why?

I was not surprised to find out that I love Media Relations. I majored in Journalism in college so coming up with new story ideas and pitching them to reporters is very exciting for me. What’s even more exciting is when the reporter actually responds and is interested in an interview with the client!

Any surprises or revelations about your role, the industry or Peppercomm?

I was honestly surprised at how willing everyone at Peppercomm is to help each other out, especially interns. I really felt like I was part of the team on every account and that my work was valued. Interning at Peppercomm was my first taste of PR and the experience has made me very excited for my future in the industry. I was able to experience so many different aspects and sectors in just four short months.

Where do you see yourself going in the industry?

I would love to work in the beauty industry. As I mentioned, I love makeup and I believe that if you can turn your hobby into a career, you’ve succeeded. I would love to learn more about the consumer industry as a whole and learn what it’s like working with influencers.
