Tyler graphic design intern

Tyler is a senior Graphic Design major at York College of Pennsylvania. This internship is her first industry experience in the field of graphic design. Along with interning at P&H, she works at the Grumbacher Sport and Fitness Center as a desk attendant. In her free time, Tyler enjoys playing video games, binge-watching TV shows and movies, and hanging out with friends and family. She’s looking forward to graduating in May, starting a career in graphic design and getting a puppy!

 

Taylor PR marketing internTaylor is a driven senior Public Relations major and Marketing minor at York College of Pennsylvania.

Beyond P&H, Taylor remains very busy outside of her internship with her role as an Executive Board for the York College Campus Activities Board, Spartographers Photography Club and Lambda Pi Eta National Communications Honors Society as well as an Athletic Photographer for York College’s Athletic Department. Taylor is excited to finish out her last semester strong and throw herself into the exciting world of public relations and marketing come graduation in May.

 

Q&A Grill Session:

  1. If you could create any animal themed week on Discovery Channel, what would it be and why?

Tyler Cross: I would definitely create Panda Week! They’re my favorite animal, and they are so friggin’ adorable. Everything they do is cute. I would probably name it something cheesy like “Pandamonium Week.”

Taylor Gamber: A Penguin Week is definitely overdue. Though, I think that penguins deserve an entire month devoted to their incredible skills and overall adorableness. They are such a fascinating species!

  1. If you could live in any century, what would it be and why?

TC: I would probably live in the 22nd Century, just because I would want to see the cool technology. We might have ACTUAL hoverboards and flying cars.

TG: I would love to have lived in the 1920s or 60s. Both were such innovative and crazy times when culture was just beginning to be challenged and women’s rights movements were at their apex.

  1. What was the last album you listened to?

TC: The last full album I listened to was “25” by Adele. It was a long four year wait since her last album, but it was worth it!

TG: My taste in music could best be summarized as eclectic, with interests ranging from folk to EDM, with my most recent infatuations: BØRNS’ “Dopamine” and The Chainsmokers’ “Bouquet.”

  1. What brought you to P&H, and what’s your favorite part of your new job?

TC: I know a couple people who have interned at P&H, and they had nothing but great things to say about it. My favorite part of this internship is definitely getting to work with Nick Harrison. I got really lucky to have one of my first professional experiences in the field of graphic design be with someone I not only admire but also get along with.

TG: The amazing energy that Nick puts into every project, coupled with the incredible span of marketing experience that P&H has, immediately enticed me to join P&H as a marketing intern. I’m looking forward to learning more about agency life, strategic marketing  planning and to dabble in social media research and campaigns as well.

 

We’re thrilled to have Team T-Square join us for the Spring. Tyler and Taylor are doing a fantastic job. Check back soon to see some of the work they’ve been knocking out of the park for us.

 

 


Meet Sarah, our Fall PR & Marketing intern.

October 20, 2015 / Advertising, Agency News, Branding
public relations intern

Partners & Harrison is thrilled to welcome Sarah Gunarich as our Fall Public Relations and Marketing intern. Sarah is a senior, Public Relations major at York College of Pennsylvania, where she is also attaining minors in Marketing and Communications. Prior to interning with Partners and Harrison, Sarah gained industry experience as a Marketing intern at The PEAK Radio and a Public Relations intern at Moxie Design and Marketing, where she also worked as the Marketing Coordinator. Along with interning at P&H, Sarah is also interning at The Glatfelter Agency, serving as a member of the Public Relations Student Society (PRSSA), and working to become a board member for Equiteam Support Services, a non-profit organization in York, Pa.

During her free time, Sarah enjoys spending time with her family and friends, enjoying outdoor activities, supporting local businesses in downtown York, and binge watching “Law & Order SVU.” After graduating, Sarah plans on working for a company that presents new and exciting challenges and one that she’s equally as passionate about. She’s also looking forward to using her first big pay check to travel the world, work towards her PhD, and marry her best friend and love of her life.

 


Sarah’s Insider Info:

If you could be reincarnated into any animal, what would it be and why?
Definitely a dinosaur – preferably a herbivore! I think it would be neat to have a glimpse into prehistoric times and uncover one of life’s greatest mysteries.
What was the last movie you watched?
The Conjuring – It was part of the “30 Days until Halloween special” on Syfy, and of course I ended up watching it at nighttime when no one was home. I’m still terrified to go to sleep.
What’s your strength?
I like to think I’m very good at thinking on my feet. My best ideas and greatest works are always produced during high pressure or last minute situations – which I’ve found to be opposite for most people.
What’s your inspiration?
I’m motivated through challenge and opportunity. I like to be innovative and try things that haven’t been done before, or at least done well. Whenever I’m given a task, I put my heart and soul into working hard and pushing myself to overcome boundaries and defying the odds. “I can’t” is not in my vocabulary.
Living or dead, name a person you would want to have dinner with the most?
My grandmother Gunarich. She passed five years ago and I still find myself missing the Italian dinners and cookies she used to make for our family. I miss her laughter and hugs so much.
Favorite food/ drink?
I’m a pretty big sushi fanatic, especially for the spicy salmon rolls at Masa in York. I also really enjoy a nice glass of Primo Amore Moscato. It’s the perfect blend of fruity and sweet!
What brought you to P&H and what’s your favorite part of your new job?
As a college senior, I was looking for an opportunity in a cutting-edge and unique environment that was not only going to prepare me for post grad life, but also push me to work harder and think more strategically. I’ve thankfully been able to find that at P&H! Every day presents a new challenge, which enables me to think on my feet and strive to become more innovative. P&H doesn’t make me feel like I’m at an “internship.” Instead, I’m involved in the the creative process and constantly challenged to meet higher standards and adapt to new concepts!

We’re stoked to have Sarah join us for the Fall. She’s been doing a killer job with our PR, social media and marketing tactics. Check out some of her work on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Google Plus pages.

Burger all the way!
If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?

What brought you to P&H and what’s your favorite part of your new job?
I chose to be part of Partners & Harrison because of their desire and commitment to being customer-centered and authentic. I’ve always wanted to be part of a small, but growing firm, that is able to handle national clientele and also produce cutting edge work. I instantly knew Partners & Harrison was the right fit for me because they made me feel as though I’d always been part of the team and their vision. I’m excited to be part of their customized, strategic and creative approach that goes into all of our projects, but more importantly, I’m looking forward to directing clients towards the services that are going to enhance and grow their business.
