I assisted the Public Relations and Content Creation team at LAPOINTE and was responsible for sample call-backs (first thing in the AM), checking availability of sample requests, making sample loan sheets in Fashion GPS and general sample trafficking, scheduling messengers/shipments using Quik Trak. I also helped with keeping track of the brand’s social media engagement, tagging/ categorizing user generated content through IG tracker Dash Hudson, and clipping Digital/PrintCredits from press as they came through. I also maintained the press contactlists and other research projects as requested by the PR team.
