It’s been a dark few weeks. A volcanic eruption halted global commerce. LOST showed a repeat this week. Crazy Siobhan was sent packing on American Idol. Kate Gosselin somehow was on “Dancing With The Stars.”
Dark times, indeed.
Out of the darkness shines a beacon of hope. No, it’s not the new Iron Man movie – it’s the return of Help A PR Pro Out on Friday, April 30!
Yes, PR pros are back again to play “point guard,” exposing rising industry talents and highlighting job opportunities. The main event is on Friday, but here’s a sample of things to come.
Let’s start with some fantastic job-seekers:
I have interned with an equestrian public relations firm, Phelps Media Group, and through this experience I have only strengthened my skills. I must forewarn you, I am unequivocally awesome, so you should absolutely hire me.
I received my Bachelors degree in Mass Communications from Virginia Union University and recently completed my Masters degree in Mass Communications, majoring in Strategic Public Relations, from Virginia Commonwealth University.
After completing my Masters degree, I was hired as a full-time media analyst intern for a public relations firm in Washington, DC. As an intern, I worked with a client-focused team to produce detailed, time-sensitive reports for multiple high-profile clients. I was the only intern selected to provide media reports for a client during a crisis situation. Based on our reporting the client decided extending their services with the firm well beyond their initial contract.
Currently, I provide administrative support for clients and the account team for a social marketing firm in Maryland. My first month on staff I traveled to Miami, Florida to assist a client with a campaign kick-off event. Based on my community outreach efforts, we reached well-over 100 residents of the Homestead, Florida community and the kick-off event was well-attended.
