The Beauty of Raleigh PR: Day 12 – Our Office

By Posted in - Entry-Level PR Job & Raleigh PR Agency on January 23rd, 2015

I think that comfort in the workplace is a big deal. Well, at least for me it is. I worried about transitioning from my own space into a random cubicle. I was afraid of corporate America with its white walls and boring elevator music. In my quest to prove that feng shui matters, I discovered many studies that say the atmosphere enhances the flow of energy and may bring favorable effects.

One of my favorite things about my job is not only the people, but also the place. I love walking into The Clairemont House every morning. The versatility of the space doesn’t just limit me to working from my desk. I can choose to switch it up and move about the house whenever I need a change in scenery.

I find that working at The Clairemont House doesn’t make coming to work a chore, instead it almost feels as if I am working from home. The cozy atmosphere in the office space is inviting and collaborative. The chic decor makes the office culture fun.

As a native of Raleigh, I know this city pretty well. I love to explore different areas, as well as learn a little more about my hometown. When I accepted the job at Clairemont, my excitement grew to learn more about downtown and its rich history.

The Clairemont House is conveniently located off of New Bern Ave on South Bloodworth Street in the heart of Historic Oakwood in Downtown Raleigh. In the finishing decades of the 19th century, some of the city’s chief educators lived in Oakwood.

The Oakwood neighborhood borrowed its name from the nearby cemetery and was the first district in Raleigh created to be a private residential suburb. Oakwood remained an upholder of the middle class through the early 20th century.

The house is perfectly outfitted with large windows and a wrap-around porch. Talk about luxury office space. The gourmet eat-in kitchen and dining room make the perfect place to cook and eat your breakfast or lunch.

If all of these reasons don’t make the house seem extra special, come on by and see it for yourself. Trust me, you will be begging Mrs. Hughens to let you have a corner to curl up in and enjoy a good book.
