Where did the summer go? It’s September, which, for most, marks the busy season. Vacation is over and our students, educators and pros are either back in the classroom or busy at work. On September 9th at 8:30 p.m. ET, the #PRStudChat and #PR20Chat communities will gather for a joint Twitter chat discussion on finding the most effective resources to include in a “Back to School #PRToolkit.”
We’re kicking off our special #PRToolkit (follow this hashtag) chat session to help students and professionals maximize their PR, marketing and social media initiatives in the fall and into 2015. We’ll be discussing everything from networking, relationship building and ethical communication to channel participation, new tools and productive apps.
A few of the questions our community members will answer, include:
– What resources can help with an internship or job search?
– How can you take advantage of social media in a search?
– What advice can our professional community members share on what they wished they knew as a student?
– Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, WordPress – oh my! Are there certain channels where students REALLY need to be active?
– Where can you learn more about ethical communications, especially in an age of public conversations?
– What platforms or apps help you to be more focused and productive?
– What bloggers, influencers and media outlets give the best recommendations on the latest technology and tools?
Don’t miss the Back to School #PRToolkit session to learn how you can advance your resources and add to your own toolkit, by chatting with peers. 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 September 9th. “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.
