Posted by Ariel Burch on Jun 16, 2017 12:23 PM

For the last five years I’ve polled the PAN staff, a group of voracious readers, about their summer reading plans (you can view our previous lists here: 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016). As the weather starts to heat up, here’s what we’re excited to take to the beach or the pool this summer.

Finding your Footing: PR Industry Tips from a Rookie

Posted by Ethan Schroeder on Apr 7, 2017 2:35 PM

When I started as a PAN intern - roughly three months ago - my public relations agency experience was at a bare minimum. Sure, I knew I had the tools to contribute to my teams (a Journalism degree is useful, people!), but save for a stint with Northeastern University’s PR club, my procedural knowledge was nonexistent. So, as I joined my account teams in the initial weeks, I began to pick up duties and jargon on the fly.

What to Expect When Applying for a PR or Marketing Internship

Posted by Phil Carpenter on Mar 10, 2017 1:56 PM

Our team interviews numerous candidates every year for internships with PAN. We’re principally looking for recent college grads who are interested in giving agency life a shot over the course of three months. At the end of this period, if the intern has done quality work and has proven to be a good cultural fit, the odds are good that we’ll offer that candidate a position to join us full-time. It’s a good arrangement for all – PAN gets a chance to see the recent grad in action, while she has the opportunity to get to know us up close and to determine whether we’re the right fit.

New Arrival at PAN: Ethan Schroeder

Posted by PAN Communications on Jan 27, 2017 1:51 PM

Ethan Schroeder - PR Intern at the Boston Office

Tell us three fun facts about yourself:

1. I was born and raised in Southeastern (Mystic) Connecticut. Mystic is situated right on the water, and I love the beach. A lot of people know Mystic because of the Mystic Aquarium, and I actually worked there one summer during high school. Sadly, it wasn't with the animals though.

2. I've previously interned at the Boston Globe as a high school sports writer; though I love going to games in the area, I'm a huge New York sports fan (Giants, Knicks, Yankees), which can prove to be an inconvenience at times. Sports in general are a big passion, both watching and playing.

3. I'm a big reader and, like most people, Netflix binger. My favorite book is "The Great Gatsby," and my favorite movies can all basically be found in Leonardo DiCaprio's filmography. Right now, I'm working on Hunter S. Thompson's novel, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."

PAN’s Favorite Things – Holiday Edition

Posted by Marki Conway on Dec 22, 2016 1:16 PM

No matter what holiday you celebrate this time of year, or if you don’t celebrate any, the end of 2016 came upon us quick this year. What a whirlwind of a year 2016 was – from electing a new US president as a nation, to Netflix stepping up its game with Stranger Things, plus playing on our nostalgia with the revive of Fuller House and Gilmore Girls, to the break-up of Brangelina, David Ortiz retiring, and finally to integrating two amazing PR agencies into one, the new PAN Communications. Might need to take a breather – 2016 was quite a year.
