Being active in GrandPR and PRSSA has been extremely beneficial for me. Professors, professionals, and alum always stress the importance of networking – so get out there and do it! Take the time to volunteer for a local PR firm. Take advantage of mentor mixers and other networking opportunities. Constantly make connections – even with peers! Grab a coffee with someone in your CAP 220 class. Sit next to someone new at every PRSSA meeting. Attend PRSSA national and regional conferences. You never know who could be a beneficial connection for you in the future. I’m grateful that I’ve been able to have these opportunities and I hope that you become involved and gain rewards of your own.
GrandPR is currently hiring for the Winter 2014 semester! The application can be found at grandpr.org under “Employment.” Please email your completed application and resume to Audra Hartges at email@example.com. Applications will be due Wednesday, November 20.
