My Time at Breslow Partners: An Intern’s Exit Interview

After five months with Breslow Partners, Senior Intern Hannah Dickey says her goodbyes. Before departing, Hannah offers a reflection on her experience at Breslow Partners.

“Boy, time sure does fly by quickly. Just a short time ago I was stepping through the doors of Breslow in polyester professional pants and my roommate’s borrowed shirt to interview at a place I had heard about through a shared Facebook post. It’s been a transformative process, mostly because of the open-mindedness waiting for me on the other side of those doors. At the beginning, I was a journalism major with no field experience. I entered an industry I knew nothing about, but with nothing to lose, I had the willingness to learn as much as I could. The dynamic environment of Breslow harbored a place for growth where I could acquire genuine experience, and I got out of it what I put into it.

Far from an expert, I am barely touching the surface of the world of public relations, but I have learned a few key things. For one, this business is all about collaboration and relationships. It’s important to maintain the correct ones with productive communication, and bid adieu to unsustainable ones. I have also learned if you truly desire for something to occur, you have to push yourself and your peers for it to be accomplished.

My time as a Account Assistant at Breslow has come to an end. I am leaving behind a diverse group of skilled professionals, who are aware of the world around them and not afraid to question it. I have been fortunate to work with competent, energetic and passionate people, and that itself has been the catalyst of my own success.”

“All the wonders you seek are within yourself.”

Runners, take your mark!

Picture 1This year an estimated 30,000 runners will travel to Philadelphia to participate in the 20 Annual Philadelphia Marathon and Half-Marathon on Sunday, November 17. The key to a healthy and successful long distance run is proper diet and nutrition. The best meal for a marathon participant consists of protein, good fats, and plenty of carbohydrates! Here are some great spots to chow down before the big day.

Le Viet is a modern Vietnamese restaurant that uses only freshest ingredients to energize you on race day! Tuck into traditional noodle soups or pack on the protein with Ca Hap Hanh Gung. This steamed fish dish is prepared with ginger soy sauce, herbs, fresh lettuce, and completed with your choice of rice or noodles. For more information click here.

A harness is the perfect way to keep your pet secured while driving

Car Trip
Loading up the family car and hitting the road is great for a weekend trip but it can be very taxing on your pet. Safety, comes first in car travel so make sure to invest in a car harness or hammock for your dog. Smaller dogs can fit into seat belt harnesses, like the Kurgo Travel Harness. This safe and tug proof harness keeps your dog connected to a seatbelt to protect against shortstops or sharp turns. For bigger dogs we recommend a seat hammock like the Kurgo Khaki Hammock. These hammocks allow for big dogs to stretch out and prevents them from falling into spaces between seat rows.

Airplane and Train
While car trips are always easier on animals, sometimes you just have to fly. It is important to remember when traveling by air or rail that pets need space and a constant supply of water. Carriers need to be large enough so that your pet can comfortably sit, stand, and turn around throughout the trip. Smaller animals like cats and small dogs will be allowed to slip underneath your seat. For under the seat we recommend a mesh carrier like the One For Pets Carriers- Cozy Carrier. Bigger dogs will be put in the cargo area of most planes and trains, allowing for much larger crates. Each airline has individual requirements, but we recommend the Vari Kennel 700 by Petmate for larger animals.

No matter how you get to your destination, it is important to call ahead to check on your hotel or locations pet policy. Also check with your airline, rental car provider, or railroad for their complete pet policy. Keep your pet safe and secure while traveling, so the entire family can enjoy a season full of adventure and fun. To find a Petvalu store near you visit. www.petvalu.com.
