Now that school is out many of our students have started interning or they are working full-time in the field. They’ve been building their resumes and portfolios from the start of their school careers, knowing that graduation was always just around the corner.
In an effort to further help our students, as they explore their PR and communication career options, #PRStudchat invites you to join a community discussion on Wednesday, June 25th at 8:30 p.m. ET, focusing on the topic “Building Your Brand to Land Your Dream Job.” Jason Mollica, who is the President of JRM Communications, will be the host of our Twitter chat session.
Many of you may know Jason for his work with young professionals. He’s also a mentor, a blogger at OneGuy’sJourney, and he lectures frequently around the county on the topic, “CEO of You.” You can learn more about Jason here.
A few of the question that our community will discuss on June 25th include:
1. What are the qualities in a personal brand that stand out to employers?
2. How do you build a brand that recruiters, other pros, can trust?
3. What are some tools you have used to build and maintain your brand?
4. What are some red flags you need to be aware of with your brand?
5. What are the key components of personal brand management?
6. How would you personally align your brand to get your “dream job?”
7. How do you effectively maintain your personal brand?
8. What social network do you feel is most important to a personal brand?
9. What is one tip you would give someone on personal branding?
10. Share a brand of someone you follow that others should follow.
If you have any questions around the topic or thoughts you want to share, in advance of the session, feel free to DM us or post your questions in our LinkedIn Discussion Group. We hope you’ll join us for a dynamic Twitter chat session on June 25th. “See” you then!
A Little More About PRStudChat:
It began with a simple question asked by Angela Hernandez, then President of PRSSA at Central Michigan University (CMU). “Is PR Right for me?” A follow up blog post by PR 2.0 expert Deirdre Breakenridge inspired a series of direct messages on Twitter between Breakenridge and fellow PR industry pro, Valerie Simon. This was an important question and one that should be explored beyond one student or one blog post. Why not build a community to help students across the country, and even the globe, learn from the experience and perspective of industry professionals… A community where everyone can learn and grow together.
