  1. Just a further comment on the admin work theme. I know that, for me, doing admin work set me apart right away in my internship in the first week and I received kudos from “people who matter”. It gave me a chance to show what I can do and already I’m getting more responsibility than I would have had if I had to be prodded to do what what I was brought in to do. You’ll quickly get the eyes and ears of your superiors if you do your job, do it well and do it with a good attitude.

    Keep on keepin on, Dave and Terry. I listen frequently and always learn something new about PR.
