Meet Our New PR and Social Media Intern Hilary!

Hilary Stoeberl


As a driven journalism and public relations student at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, what I want more than anything else is to be a part of an agency. I love the agency vibe and how no two days are ever the same. So when I heard SPARK Advertising in nearby Neenah was looking to fill an intern position, I quickly applied.

In early September, I was excited to be invited to join the agency for the rest of 2012.

I am drawn to the field of public relations because developing and communicating a company’s brand message is exciting to me. Social media is especially exciting because of the vast opportunities it offers to connect people through storytelling across America and around the world.

I have been fortunate through my training in college to learn the professional skills for public relations – honing my writing and presenting skills, learning business techniques to use social media and working on various marketing campaigns. Some of my other activities include:

  • Vice president of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh’s PRSSA chapter
  • Student reporter for the The Advance Titan, UWO’s student newspaper
  • Co-student director for the CARE program on campus
  • Marketing intern for Clarity Care last spring

At SPARK, I found an enthusiasm and energy I hadn’t encountered before. Being around team members for only a short time, I was struck by their passion and shared vision. SPARK’s public relations and social media team is set apart by their industry knowledge and their dedication to deliver results for clients.

After graduating, I would love to find myself working for a full-service agency, public relations or event planning firm in the Chicago area.

During my time at SPARK, I will contribute to the agency’s social media promotions. I am excited to say that I will lead SPARK’s 2012 Christmas program as well as participate in SPARK’s work with Shoutlet, an industry-leader in making social media projects easy for companies. In addition, I will be helping SPARK’s public relations specialist, Amber, with her daily work and needs.

If you have a marketing, public relations or social media challenge that I can help you with, or that SPARK Advertising can help you with – please call us at (920) 725-9460. I am excited to help!
