Grapevine Communications Continues Internship Program And Hires High School Intern For Full-Time Summer Position

Sarasota, Florida – May 1, 2013 – Grapevine Communications, the area's leading full-service advertising, marketing and public relations agency, has added to its full-time staff. Raven Chapman, an intern and high school student with dual enrollment at the State College of Florida, will join the team in the summer to handle public relations tasks. Chapman plans to graduate high school with an associate's degree in 2015.

Chapman began her internship with Grapevine in January 2013, where she initially shadowed each staff member to learn the inner workings of the active advertising agency. She quickly established a role in public relations, where she assisted in the dissemination of press releases, performed media searches for press coverage, and located print advertisements and other articles of exposure for the firm's clients.

"Working at Grapevine has been amazing. I've learned so much in the past few months, and the work environment is exciting and fast-paced," said Chapman. "As a high school student, it's a rare opportunity to have a real-world experience in this industry, so I'm grateful that Grapevine has offered me this chance."

Grapevine Communications is continuing to grow as clients see increased business and the need to expand their marketing strategies. The agency is still in the process of hiring, with additional staff anticipated for 2013.
