Congratulations to the Class of 2013 and best of luck to our #PRStudChat graduates!
The Mashable article, “The Big Word That Means Very Little,” written by Lauren Hockenson states, “You can’t get through a communications think tank, social presentation or even a press release without seeing the word “engagement.
You may have heard this expression: “When a crisis strikes, you need to communicate immediately.”
I’ve been feeling a little reflective for all kinds of good…and not-so-good…reasons. Don’t want to dwell on the “not-so’s” today…weather’s too nice and the semester’s winding down…so I’ll get right to the good stuff.
Here’s something fun to add to your May activities … My friend Sarah Evans emailed me last night to let me know that Tracky had just launched the first Virtual Hackathon called #Commhacks for communications professionals.
My media training clients often tell me they don’t trust reporters because they use “sleazy” tactics to coax information from them. When I hear that, I ask my clients this question: “Are there ever times you tell your colleagues something behind closed doors that you’d rather not share with the reporter?”
It’s not summertime yet, but most of the #PRStudChat student population is thinking about summer internships. What type of internship would be best? How do I make the most of my Internship and what are expected of Interns as they encounter real world PR experience? These are a few of the topics we’ll explore with our community on Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
We had what was, for the City of Boston, “major breaking news” recently as four-term Mayor Tom Menino announced he would not be seeking a fifth run at the City’s highest elected office.
For PR pros who want to stay relevant in their organizations and for those new professionals who are starting their careers in communications, this is a serious question. On March 28, 2013, Sergei Samoilenko, Geno Church and I presented a PRSA Webinar on The Universal PR Professional of Tomorrow. The focus of our discussion was on PR roles and responsibilities, new ways to engage and share meaningful content, and the need to close the gap between what universities teach and what students should know when they enter into the field.
