PRSSA meetings are finally here, and everyone should be excited! Whether you’re a new member or a returner, PRSSA has many opportunities to help you succeed and advance your career. Here are a few reasons why I love PRSSA and why I’m excited for this upcoming year.
- Learning. Thought you learned what you needed to know in class? Wrong. There’s so much more to learn. PRSSA brings in professionals to give advice to students and keep them updated about what’s going on in the industry. They provide insight you wouldn’t get in the classroom, so there’s always something new to learn at every meeting.
- Networking. Are you a freshman? Just picked your major? Want to meet some new people? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, PRSSA is for you! At every PRSSA meeting, there is an opportunity to connect with other students as well as speakers. Expanding your network can help you advance your career, so what are you waiting for?
- Resume Building. PRSSA constantly has new ways to help you gain skills and build your resume. Whether it’s having professionals look over your resume or learning more about SEO, you’ll learn something valuable from each meeting.
- Free Food. You read that right. Yes, free food. Grab a snack on us and learn more about what a career in the public relations industry looks like.
- Being a Part of Something More. Every time I set foot in a PRSSA meeting, I have no doubt that I picked the right major. Just by attending each meeting, you are giving yourself the opportunity to be a part of something more. You can learn in the classroom, but you can put yourself ahead of the curve by being involved outside of it. From meetings, networking events, conferences, and making lasting friendships, PRSSA boosts every aspect of your professional and social life.
Even if you aren’t an Advertising and Public Relations major or minor, I encourage you to come to our meetings. By being involved in PRSSA, you are one step closer to landing your dream job, making a new connection, or learning a new skill. The opportunities are endless and they can all start with PRSSA.
