Meet the CUPID Associates: Hillary Dooley

Hello everyone! My name is Hillary Dooley, and I am a senior, majoring in Professional Writing and Rhetoric. I am very excited for this opportunity as a CUPID Associate, and I hope you all take advantage of everything the CUPID Studio has to offer. I will be holding hours from 5:15-7:15pm on Mondays, so please stop by!

I decided I wanted to be a PWR major after taking Style and Editing with Dr. Tim Peeples. I went on to take the Writing Center Workshop class, and after that, I knew PWR was the place for me. I have done several projects throughout my time in PWR, including branding and marketing the American Studies Minor with several posters and rack cards. Recently, in Intro to PWR, my class and I came up with a marketing strategy and marketing materials for the Association for Business Communication. ABC was so pleased with our work that they invited everyone in the class to present our research during their annual conference in New Orleans in October. I will elaborate more about that in a later post.

I also have had two internships. My first internship was with the Alamance County Arts Council. I helped created flyers for their events, but my main assignment was to complete their Annual Report. I researched, created, and edited this report to be handed out to the members on the Board of Directors. This past summer, I interned at Reese Advertising, an integrated marketing agency, near my hometown in Pennsylvania. I enjoyed the opportunity to work with clients, see how an agency is run, and learn more about Marketing/PR. I am looking forward to applying my skills as I begin my job search for a position at a PR agency next year.

Again, feel free to stop by, and let me know if you have any questions!
