Chelsey Bartles Joins Media Partners as Account Coordinator
Raleigh, N.C. (September 9, 2013) - Media Partners, Inc. (MPI), a strategic marketing agency located in Raleigh, North Carolina, announces the addition of Chelsey Bartles as account coordinator.
Bartles will work directly with the creative department to ensure deadlines are met and monitor traffic between clients and the agency. She will also support public relations efforts for both the agency and clients, including Centra Health and Central Carolina Hospital.
Bartles is a recent graduate of North Carolina State University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a concentration in Public Relations. She interned for MPI her last semester of college and from there was offered a full-time position with the agency.
“Chelsey really proved herself as an intern” said Sal Conino, Partner at MPI. “Her organizational skills and work ethic will be true assets for MPI and our clients.”
The MPI internship program is unique because it offers students or recent graduates real exposure to the day-to-day tasks in the agency with real opportunities to engage with clients and internal teams. Agency partners Nancy Bono and Sal Conino work with intern candidates to understand their strengths, their goals, and the particular areas of the business in which they want to gain experience. In the past four years, three of Media Partners’ full-time employees started as interns and were offered full-time jobs by the end of the program.
“They’re not just answering the phone and running errands,” commented Nancy Bono, Partner at MPI. “We provide an environment where interns truly have an opportunity to experience all areas of the agency, from client meetings to final media presentations.”
“I was very fortunate to have received a full-time offer from my internship, “said Bartles. “It’s one of those things you always hope will happen. As an intern I was exposed to every aspect of the agency; client meetings, conference calls and staff meetings. You don’t get that kind of experience with other companies”
