My name is Alana Hood and I’m a recent graduate of the University of Georgia, with a BA in public relations, minor in fashion merchandising, and a certificate in new media. Until January 2019, I will be interning in public relations at the Mercedes-Benz headquarters in Atlanta.
While at UGA, I served as the Vice President of Public Relations for Panhellenic Council, overseeing the eighteen sororities on our campus, and served as the vice president: Panhellenic for Delta Gamma, where I was a liaison between my sorority and Greek life as a whole. I also worked as a discipler and small group leader for the Wesley Foundation on campus, a mentor position where I meet weekly with two younger students, and weekly with twenty freshmen students, to help them in their walk through college. Additionally, I was a member of TEDxUGA, PRSSA, and Order of Omega honor society.
I hope to find a full time position in the area of public relations, marketing, advertising, or digital media. My skills include Adobe Creative Cloud, predominately in Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator; HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap coding; social media; and Google Analytics.
My past intern experiences were with Georgia Emergency Management Agency, Deep South Social Creative Consultancy, and Weddings in Athens. At GEMA, I worked as a public affairs intern, creating infographics, a social media calendar, and articles for both internal and external publications. At Deep South Social, I worked as a PR Intern and wrote blog posts for the clothing company Tutu Moi, wrote entrepreneurial blogs for Deep South Social, posted on their Instagram daily, and worked on PR and media campaigns for Deep South Social, Tutu Moi, and the clothing company River Wild. At Weddings in Athens, I served as a blogging intern, writing multiple blogs each week that highlighted the latest wedding trends, highlighted local Athens vendors, and gave newly weds a platform to share their story.
I’m passionate about all things communication, travel, running, and Seinfeld.
