So I am finally graduating in May and not only do I have to worry about finishing up the work in my classes…. I have to worry about getting a job!! Public relations is a growing field and it is interesting looking for a job in the PR world.
May 24th I will start my summer internship at the American Cancer Society of Bulloch County. I will be working to plan events and also working with their marketing and advertising. I am excited for this internship because it will give me the opportunity to learn more about event planning and public relations.
But then what? I have been looking for jobs for the past couple of months and have realized how stressful it can be. I have interviews and job opportunities, but how will I know which is right? With the economy the way it is, no one can be too picky. It is important to learn as much as you can about a company or organization before going for an interview. The more you know, the better you look.
I learned some GREAT interviewing tips from my PR Practicum class, taught by Professor Barbara Nixon. Doing a mock interview for that class helped me to be more at ease during a real interview.
I hope that every one of my fellow graduates finds a job they love and has a successful life after college. Here’s to the next step in our lives!
