Student Spotlight: Scott Medlen
This week's Student Spotlight is with Scott Medlen, a senior in the PR program.
Where are you from?
I’m from Clarkston, Michigan.
Why did you choose PR as a career path?
I chose PR because I've always enjoyed communicating and
exchanging ideas with others. Good communication is vital. Human progress and understanding are achieved through excellent communication. I felt that a degree in PR would allow me the freedom to work in any industry of my choosing.
What internships or experience have you had so far?
I have not completed an internship yet, but I have plenty of experience doing PR for bands in the past, like booking regional tours, contacting radio stations, negotiating contracts, recording albums, etc.
What do you want to do with your career?
I'd like to work in the entertainment industry - particularly with musicians and independent record labels. As an avid musician myself, I understand the concerns, needs, and wants of the people I will represent.
