Posted on: March 8, 2016 | By: Keeley Sheehan

B2 Communications provides real world experience in the public relations industry to hardworking college or university students and recent graduates. Marla Korenich has joined B2 as our Spring 2016 intern, along with Bryana Perkins who has continued her internship with us.

Marla has become part of the agency’s team-based approach to client work by assisting account teams with research, writing and reporting. Marla will gain an in-depth understanding of public relations during her internship as she helps with B2 clients like Environmental Pest Service, Marlow’s Tavern and Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts.

Marla is a senior at University of South Florida St. Petersburg and graduates this summer with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. She is a contributor to USF St. Pete’s student paper The Crow’s Nest and online blogging community HerCampus.

In addition, Marla made the Chancellor’s List – which is awarded to full-time students who maintain a 4.0 GPA – both semesters of the 2014-15 school year.
