It may be August, but at #PRStudChat, we are feeling like its New Year’s Eve. So we’re ready to celebrate and look forward to some really exciting things that are happening in the collegiate PR world. Three reasons are cause for celebration:
First, it’s time to raise the digital roof as #PRStudChat celebrates our 6th anniversary! Our community continues to grow and we want to celebrate the dedicated students, professionals and educators who have supported PR learning these past six years.
Second, the new semester gets underway with a renewed energy and excitement for all of us. With so many emerging technologies, platforms and ways to learn, the industry really is something to celebrate!
And, finally, to help us celebrate and kick off something new for college students who want to network online with employers who can offer them internships and jobs….our guest moderator will be Susan Young, creator of CareerTapped.com.
Join us on Tuesday, August 25 at 8:30 PM, ET. Susan is CEO of Get in Front Communications, and has been named one of the “Top 75 Badass Women on Twitter.”
We’ll be talking about what’s new in PR and learning, new trends, tools, things we’ve learned these past six years on #PRStudChat—and what’s on the horizon. Career readiness, PR, communication and CareerTapped….on August 25!
During #PRStudChat, we’ll cover a range of issues, including:
- How—and why—to get a jumpstart on potential PR mentoring, internships and jobs
- The real value of professional and personal development
- Ways to access decision makers who can hire you
- How to prioritize what you need to learn this semester, without being overwhelmed
- … plus more!
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.
