A true Public Relations Professional.

This summer, FischTank has been fortunate to have two awesome interns join our team. In Part One of a dynamic two part series of hard-hitting interview style conducted by Eric Fischgrund, please meet Jennifer Latchford:

Jen, it’s great to meet you. Prior to joining FischTank, where did you go to school?

I graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in May

Wow, it’s great to have someone from the awesome state of Pennsylvania. What was your major?

My major is communication studies

That’s great, Communications was my area of study at Shippensburg University. Why are you interested in this field?

I have been interested in public relations and marketing because it’s very exciting to be a part of setting plans up for our clients to ensure success for their companies. I enjoy being able to see how one interaction with a company can open so many doors professionally.

Great answer, and I really appreciate that you emphasized the importance of generating success for our clients! More specifically, what industries interest you?

The entertainment industry has always been my main interest, one day I hope to work as a publicist or as a manager for a public figure involved in the media.

Good to know! I guess FischTank needs to work with more celebrities, although we are fortunate to do so with a few. Who is your favorite journalist?

Well I don’t really have a favorite journalist…I appreciate a sense of humor, but other than that I will read just about anything…back of shampoo bottles included.

Hmm, shampoo bottles. That’s a little weird but America is a free country. Music is important to everyone at FischTank — who is your favorite band/musician?

I don’t have a particular band I am a fan of either, but genre wise I LOVE country music.

Country music? You have a bright future here! Last question, then we’ll get you get back to work. What are some of your interests outside of communications and country music?

I am very outdoorsy-I like to hike, camp, kayak, etc.
