CV

Professional Summary

            My name is Annie Cleaver and I'm a senior majoring in Communication at the University of Southern California with minors in Public Relations and Cinematic Arts. This summer, I worked at StreetCred PR, a financial PR agency with employees and clients in the financial sector across the United States. Here, I was able to develop my PR skills by drafting pitches for our clients' SMEs to financial reporters. I was also tasked with updating media contact lists and client campaign decks.

 

            I've been fortunate to have extensive experiences within the PR realm — from working in finance, politics, consumer relations, social media and influencer marketing, and non-profit spaces, I have developed a well-rounded understanding of the power of public relations. My internship experience has made me a skilled copywriter, social media marketer, and PR strategist while upholding my standards of organization and timeliness.
