#PRStudChat Explores Summer Internships & Career Opportunities for Students on Thursday, April 25th 0
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.
Internships offer students the opportunity to learn on the job and to prepare for their careers ahead. The April 25th session will give students a chance to learn first hand from other students and professionals who will share their internship adventures. A great internship experience is the key to starting out with good insight into the field of PR.
A few of the topics we will explore that night include: What makes the best type of internship experience? How do you make yourself stand out as an intern? What do you need to know before you start your internship experience? Who can you rely upon as a mentor when you are interning and will it possible to find a mentor as a part of the internship program? Will I have a full-time job as a result of my internship?
Please join us on April 25th at 8:30 p.m. ET to find out the answers to these questions and more. Get ready to share your internship experiences and how they helped you to become the professional that you are today.
Don’t miss a night of internship experiences with our PR community. If you have any questions about summer internships, in advance of the session, feel free to DM us or post your questions in our LinkedIn Discussion Group. We look forward to “seeing” you on the 25th!
