10 Things In Pr

  1. 1. 10. Things I have learned in Public Relations • For our final assignment we have to write 10 things we have learned in PR. Made By Hozan Mosa
  2. 2. Introduction • When I first attended “intro to pr”, I really did not know anything about it. The only thing I knew, was that it had something to do with writing and medias. After taking the class for almost a whole semester I have become more aware of what pr is and what it implies. • I will now list 10. things I have learned in my pr class.
  3. 3. 1. Communication • Though my major is Human Communication, it is nothing like communication in PR field. • I have learned how important communication is in pr, and how they use it to get out to the audience. A communication message should be appropriate, clear, memorable, understandable and believable to the recipient. • The audience is really important, and therefore, you have to be careful how you communicate and which tools you communicate through.
  4. 4. 2. Research • I did not know how important research was until I attended pr class. Research is the first process in public relation, and therefore really important because it is a big part of planning, program development and evaluation process.
  5. 5. 3. Interview • I am so glad that we had the chance to interview a pr practitioner because it made us get closer to pr field, and some pr people. After the interview I became more aware of their daily planning and that they really do not have one single day alike. • I have learned some interviewing techniques we have learned in class that I believe are important to know; you should set an appointment or email them or even call them. The email should be a last solution.
  6. 6. 4. Podcast • I have not heard the word podcast ever and did not know what it was until now. If you want to know something about any topic of your topic, podcast is really useful. There are many different podcast links you can visit, the one I used for my podcast assignment was http://www.podcastpickle.com/
  7. 7. 5. Resume • The first time, when we were told that we have to learn to write a resume, I thought, come on that can be that hard. Well it is. I have always been use to write resume the way we do in Denmark, so I thought it would be the same. But it is not, well not exactly. We had some guidelines to follow to write a resume. When you know the guidelines you thing that does not seem so difficult until you start using them. It is more difficult than it seems.
  8. 8. 6. Social Medias • Everyone knows what social medias are. But how many there are is not that easy to find out. The only social media I use and always have been using is Facebook. • Social medias are actually very useful specially if you are in the pr field. They help you to be updated with information about what is going on around the world. Pr people should always be aware of their surroundings and always make sure not to miss important news. Many pr people are on different social medias.
  9. 9. 7. AP style • AP style is a very good tool to use. And not only in pr but in many other writing classes. • AP style helps you to write in a more structured and correct way. And better for your message to be understood.
  10. 10. 8. Job Research • I enjoyed this area a lot. Is not easy to go “job hunting” as you might think. Well, that was what I thought at first. I have learned some very good techniques to search for a job. Techniques that can be very useful for me in the future when to search for a job
  11. 11. 9. News Release • I also learned how to write news releases and the purpose of one. If you want to work in the pr field, is very important to know how to write a news release.
  12. 12. 10. Magazine Cover • This was really fun trying to do. It was very different from much else we have done in the class. To create a magazine cover made me use my creativity, not that is that good but it was fun to try.
