Bayli Hobson wears many hats, and to say she has stayed busy since graduation would be an understatement.
Bayli’s degree focused on public relations, and after graduating, she went to work for one of Tulsa's, top PR agencies, Resolute PR. She began her career with Resolute as an intern her senior year at OSU, traveling back and forth to Tulsa every Friday.
She worked with social media but quickly became an asset to every function of the agency and was hired fulltime as an account coordinator. She now works in every area of the agency including PR, digital and social media.
When asked what her typical day at Resolute looks like, Bayli struggled to find an answer to sufficiently illustrate all the hats she wears. At the beginning of the week, she is typically working with press requests and media pitches, and closer to the end of the week, she can be found pounding out witty social media posts for her clients.
“No two days are the same; I can tell you that,” Bayli said.
The only thing consistent in her work week is her Starbucks order (venti iced coffee with one pump of caramel and a little half and half) and her throwback Spotify playlist she listens to every Thursday on her morning commute.
As a recent graduate of the School of Media & Strategic Communications, Bayli has fond memories from the Paul Miller Building that feel as if it were yesterday.
“All my memories from SMSC boil down to group projects and those late nights in Paul Miller,” Bayli said. “Those are some of the best memories I have from college.”
As for advice, Bayli says to build those relationships with peers and professors because those are the people students want and need on their team.
“Be creative, be fun and be different, and that will help you go a long way,” she said.
Bayli is loving life in Tulsa and says it’s a nice mix of city and country with a tight-knit community and plenty of cool things happening. She plans to continue to wear her many hats as an account coordinator extraordinaire, and she hopes to move up to an account executive position in the next few years.
