Thank you for all the responses to my PCH blog post asking what YOU want to know about me or the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. A number of you have shown interest in learning about my background and how I became the newest member of the PCH Prize Patrol Elite Team. Here’s my story…
I graduated from Loyola College in Maryland in 2005 where I majored in Communications and minored in English. As a native of Long Island, NY, I know it is the home base of many reputable companies; but I must say, when I saw there was a job opening at PCH I jumped at the opportunity to apply for a job. Like many others, I have been a PCH Fan for years along with my parents, grandparents and friends. To me, Publishers Clearing House embodies professionalism, excitement, joy and of course, hope…and I hoped I would be able to have a career opportunity at Publishers Clearing House, since it’s such a unique and outstanding company.
Luck was certainly on my side because I was hired in 2008 as a member of the Online Product Mix department. Essentially, my responsibilities were to analyze results and select the best PCH merchandise assortment possible that you would see in your emails. Happily I performed that job through September 2010 when I moved to the Promotion Development group. Here, I brainstorm with a group of highly knowledgeable and passionate PCH employees to create the sweepstakes contests you love to enter and hope to win! Along with office responsibilities tied to this position, I am a new Prize Patrol member, in fact, the newest member of the PCH Prize Patrol Elite Team. My personality is extremely positive, up-beat, hopeful, warm, and I’m ALWAYS laughing. These traits exemplify what it takes to become a member of this amazing prize award team.
As many of you have guessed, yes, it truly is the most interesting, exciting, touching job I have ever experienced. I don’t think there are many jobs in the world like this and I feel truly blessed to be a part of it. Although I have only been doing this since September, I already have been a part of some unforgettable winning moments. My first PCH Prize Patrol trip was to Las Vegas to award Publishers Clearing House winner Mr. Joe Beane, with a $1 Million SuperPrize – how’s that for an exciting start to a new job?! Not long after I was out giving away yet another million dollar sweepstakes award to Julie Laughlin from Grand Ledge Michigan! Along the way I have been on the road awarding cash prizes ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 and have met such inspiring, sweet and excited Publishers Clearing House winners!
Becoming a new Prize Patrol member at this time is particularly exciting. Publishers Clearing House is promoting its biggest lifetime prize EVER – One Million Dollars A Year For Life! It’s simple to enter the contest online. Go to http://pch.com/ to enter the PCH Sweepstakes today and who knows, you may be seeing me at your door one day with balloons, flowers, champagne and a very Big Check!
Good luck everyone and thank you again for inquiring about little ol’ me! 🙂
