Employees of the THREE speak for my PR class

Last Wednesday, two Georgia Southern University alumni came to my public relations class and spoke. Lauren Crawford and Jeremy Estroff are both employees at the respected Advertising, Public Relations, and Direct Marketing firm Three. Three works with Simmons, Waffle House, and Children’s Health care. Both Lauren and Jeremy have done very well for themselves in the PR field which, as a public relations major at GSU, was incredibly encouraging. Jeremy discussed one of his most rewarding projects to be the launch of a new model of Mercedes(really cool!). They both let the class know that writing is one of, is not the most, important part of being in the industry. They advised us to proofread our work multiple times. Many students asked what their company looked for in interns and the advice Jeremy and Lauren gave was to build a book, get experience, create credibility by working, and have a great resume. Jeremy really focused on viral marketing and how it is becoming such a HUGE part of public relations. All and all, the presentation got me really jazzed to jump into the field. I still have a year of school left but I can’t lie, I’m chomping at the bit to get right on in there!

    What did you think of Jeremy’s choice of words when he was discussing the floor samples (he said that their goal was to make flooring sexy)?
