Save the Date: Join #PRStudChat on March 24th to discuss “The Future is Now: Landing Your First Job Like a PRo!”
Interested in a career in public relations? Don’t know how to prepare for the job search? Join #PRStudChat and guest Jennie Donohue (@jenniedonohue), senior lecturer and director of the PR curriculum at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, on Thursday, March 24, from noon — 1 p.m. ET for the live Twitter chat, “The Future is Now: Landing Your First Job Like A PRo.”
Jennie, UMass Amherst PR students (#DonohuePRCases) and the #PRStudChat community will discuss how to find and land your first PR job. The chat, sponsored by @SpinSucks, will focus on the PR student experience, providing a guide for your job hunt including what the job market looks like now to what you can expect working your first year in industry.
In 2009, 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 Communication Strategist 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.
