There’s only one day left? You can’t be Sirius

By Eleni Kothesakis — With exhaustion taking over my body, I somehow had the strength to get up today for our last day of professional visits. After a wild 24 hours the day before, I genuinely wasn’t prepared for yet another day of excursions. Luckily, our day was light as we only had two visits…

Day Six: The Final Act

By Annalisa Peña — We started our last networking day today at SiriusXM. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the company as a whole. I like the environment; the team seemed to be very close and invested in the company. They all lit up talking about their jobs and it seemed like they…

So when I…

The Greatest City in the World

By, Danielle Feldman — I started my day at SiriusXM and ended stage dooring at “Hamilton”! SiriusXM was interesting, I learned a lot about their company and now I’m tempted to get a subscription.

The Final Curtain

by Amanda Coyne — Friday was a lighter day compared to the rest of the week. We began at SiruisXM, which I really enjoyed. I never considered a job in PR at a radio company, especially SiriusXM, but after taking a tour and hearing all about what the company does, I felt I could see…
