Here are what others have to say about me:

Kate Brodock

CMO at untapt Inc., Co-Founder at Women 2.0, Mentor at TechStars

“Iris worked as a graduate marketing and communications intern at our technology startup for five months. Iris is an exceptional addition to the team. I haven’t worked with someone as motivated to learn as Iris is.

She is completely responsive and reliable, knows PR and communications strategy very well, and is a quick study in terms of brand knowledge. I would recommend Iris to any team.”

John David Ross

Communications Director, School of Information Studies, Syracuse University

“I have been very impressed by Iris ever since she approached me to originally plan out her internship. She takes the initiative, knows when and how to ask the right questions, and is eager to learn/do more in her role.

She is a good self-starter. Once pointed towards a topic or assignment, she needs very little to get going on it. She is able to understand technical concepts and ideas, probe out the information she needs on them, and write a piece that is audience-appropriate and covers the information that I need it to.”

Rochelle Ford, Ph.D., APR

Public Relations Chair at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications,         Syracuse University

“As the chair of the Public Relations Department at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications of Syracuse University, I have found her to be an outstanding student and young professional with strong problem-solving capabilities, team leadership, curiosity and a hardworking spirit. She began our program after working in the public relations industry for more than five years and while here refined her skills particularly in the English language and in a US approach to public relations.

Here, she has maintained a strong academic record and has gained additional hands-on experience associated with her interests in technology start-ups. In her interactions with her US and international classmates, she is professional and makes others feel comfortable. This trait makes her an effective leader and team member.  Under her leadership, her teams performed well. These team projects enabled her to demonstrate her skills in digital analytics using Sysomos. She also has learned CisionPoint and Google Analytics.”

Hua Jiang, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Public Relations Department at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University

 “Ms. Wang excels in teamwork and supervisory roles from my class observations and feedback from other students. A great deal of work in my public relations theory class involved working with peers. Through my interaction with her, Ms. Wang has consistently demonstrated her superb abilities in conducting independent, rigorous research as well as applying public relations theories and principles into solving real-world problems. 

Ms. Wang works extremely hard and makes a concerted effort to gain a solid understanding of the materials covered in class. I have been very impressed by her superb ability to apply the concepts and strategies to real-life cases and campaigns. She always stands out as a leader in class discussions. Because of her diligence and knowledge in public relations, I selected her to work with me as my research assistant this spring. She has been very helpful to the completion of my research projects.”
