    Stress and Strategy 

    This week was a stressful one for me at school.  In addition to the research project on Indonesia I am doing for my internship I have three other research projects assigned this semester for my degree!  Unfortunately they are all in different areas of study, and when all four projects come to the forefront in one week it can be fairly overwhelming.  The important thing I have found that helps me to be both a good worker at work and an efficient student are to only tackle what is in front of me, and try my best to wipe the other projects from my mind.

    One extremely useful thing that I am learning at my internship is how to both follow instructions and take the initiative at the same time.  I don’t think it will ever be useful in a work environment to simply do what is instructed and nothing further, nor will this tactic ever be useful in academia where ingenuity is invaluable.

    Just How Thin IS The “Thin Line” Between Marketing and PR 

    One of my first lessons at the CEA? There’s more to differentiate marketing and PR than I previously thought. I still believe it’s a pretty thin line (and always getting thinner), but it’s been fascinating to see things from a marketing perspective as opposed to communications.

    In the past, as I’ve said before, most of my internships have been in communication departments and at a PR agency, always bordering on marketing, but never enough for me to call myself a “marketing intern.” At CEA, that’s my title, and the differences are becoming more clear to me every day.

      Hey Alex,
      I totally understand what you mean. For the past year I interned at a marketing, advertising & PR firm but worked mostly on marketing and advertising whereas now my current internship is specifically in a Comm department. It’s hard to explain unless you’ve experienced it. While the line still exists it’s more like a dotted line that has occasionally has some solid segments occasionally.
