Final 10 Things Final 10 Things Presentation Transcript

  • 10 Things I learned in PR Practicum
    Allison Schlumper
    PR 3711
  • 1. Resume
    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.
  • 2. Etiquette
    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.
  • 3. Dress
    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.
  • 4. Job search
    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).
  • 5. Interview
    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.
  • 6. Portfolio
    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.
  • 7. LinkedIn
    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.
  • 8. PR Trade Book
    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.
    My trade book:
  • 9. Informational Interview
    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)
  • 10. Last but NOT least…
    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.
