This was my first week working as a Communication Intern for the Ohio Pork Council. This organization is funded through the Pork Checkoff and focuses on promoting and advocating for the pork industry. Throughout my time as an intern, I will be doing a variety of tasks, like writing press releases or magazine content, designing graphics, and serving as an assistant manager for one of OPC’s food stands at the Ohio State Fair. This week, I wrote my first press release, created some content for Ohio Porkline- a publication through the Ohio Pork Council- and attend the OAND conference as a representative of the Ohio Pork Council. I am excited to see that I already using skills that I have learned through my course work and I am enjoying advocating for the pork industry.
