Top Dog has been the savior of my academic career here at UIndy. When I first arrived at UIndy, I was a transfer student with a major in Exercise Science Pre-PT. After struggling for a few semesters I realized I wasn’t putting my natural abilities to use. You see, I am a creative person with a passion for descriptive words and television. As you can probably guess, that didn’t help me much in the medical field.
After doing some research, I stumbled upon the communication department. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do, but I just knew this department was the right place to discover whatever it is that might be. After meeting with the Dr. Clark, the department head, he helped me decide on an emphasis of public relations which allowed me to expand on my creative writing skills. PR also allowed me to keep in mind that I would be a part of a team that helped develop ideas for commercials, and promote objectives that could not only improve PR for my client, but how publics related to one another.
Top Dog has helped easy my anxiety of joining the workforce because of the applied work I have already completed for previous clients. I now have a functioning resume, cover letter and portfolio to show employers not only what I am capable of, but what I enjoy doing.
