08.10.2010

HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 10, 2010 – Kim Mannino, a rising senior majoring in strategic communication with a minor in marketing at High Point University, is spending her summer interning at Bella Public Relations in New York City.

As part of her internship, Mannino is responsible for putting together press kits, writing press releases, sending product requests to major fashion magazines, attending desk side product viewing with clients at fashion magazines, creating pitches, organizing the inventory closet, and creating detailed lists and contact sheets.
