Final 10 Things

  1. 1. 10 Things I learned in PR Practicum<br />Allison Schlumper<br />PR 3711<br />
  2. 2. 1. Resume<br />I learned how to put a resume together, what to add and leave out of a resume, and what employers look for in a resume.<br />
  3. 3. 2. Etiquette <br />I learned what examples of proper etiquette are. I got some great information on what to do at certain dinners and lunches and what is the proper way to act.<br />
  4. 4. 3. Dress<br />How you dress to an interview or meeting is very important. We learned about the dos and don’ts in what to wear in certain environments.<br />DO<br />DON’T<br />
  5. 5. 4. Job search<br />I learned that in order to find a job, you have to be persistent and follow up on your interview. Thank you notes always help and you have to stand out (in a good way).<br />
  6. 6. 5. Interview<br />Interviews are an essential part in any job process. We learned how to answer certain question, what to bring, and how to prepare for an interview.<br />
  7. 7. 6. Portfolio<br />Throughout the semester, we talked a great deal about our portfolios. I learned how to create mine, what the best pieces to put in a portfolio are, and how to present your own portfolio.<br />
  8. 8. 7. LinkedIn<br />We were all required to create a LinkedIn profile for this class. I found this very helpful because I now have at least 20 connections (and counting), and I think it is a great networking tool, especially for PR majors.<br />
  9. 9. 8. PR Trade Book<br />We all picked a PR trade book to read and present to the class. I learned a lot from all of the presentations which varied from marketing to PR to event planning. I wrote down multiple titles and am looking forward to reading some of the books that we discussed in the future.<br />My trade book:<br />
  10. 10. 9. Informational Interview<br />Pam Corbett was the PR professional that I interviewed for this class. It was interesting to talk to her and find out more information on a different side of PR that she worked with (PR with a Marketing/Communications slant)<br />
  11. 11. 10. Last but NOT least…<br />Overall, this class taught me how to prepare for life after college. I got a better idea of how to interview and prepare for the job search in general. I believe this class will help me to be a better PR professional in the future.<br />
