  • 1. What I learned in PR Practicum
    By: Lindsay Coonrod
  • 2. Resume Writing
    Proper format/style
    How to write an appropriate cover letter for the job in which you are applying
    What kind of jobs/experience should and shouldn’t be included
    What to write for the objective that makes you seem like you are ready for the real world
  • 3. Informational interview
    Writing in the PR field is paramount and the most critical aspect of the career
    3 tips for a recent PR grad: Network, Intern, Repeat
    Graphic design is one thing they wished they focused more on
    Keep your resume concise and relevant because it is the first impression that companies will have of you
  • 4. Linkedin
    I did not know anything about LinkedIn until this class
    I think that it will be very helpful for my career because of the people who I can connect myself with
    I like how LinkedIn allows you to post your resume as is and it formats it for you
  • 5. Job Searching
    Proper etiquette to have when in the company of potentially important people
    With the mock interview I learned the important of appearance, confidence, and the over all way you conduct yourself
    Sending a handwritten thank you letter after the interview is very important
    Make sure your resume is neatly printed on watermark paper and send it out in the proper envelope
  • 6. What not to wear
  • 7. Proper Dress
    I learned what kind of clothing is appropriate during an interview and also at work
    Here are some examples:
  • 8. Portfolio
    Make sure your portfolio is in a presentable folder
    Have 3-5 of your best/favorite works inside for the interviewee to look at if they choose to do so
    Make sure to create a leave behind with 2 of your best pieces from your portfolio inside
  • 9. Trade book: The structural transformation of the public sphere
    The public sphere represented “public opinion”
    Public sphere – the sphere of private people how came together and formed a public
    The public sphere is both a social reality with a history, and a theoretical concept
    The author traces the history of the separation between public and private in language and philosophy
    This book did not directly help me when it comes to my future in PR but it was a very interesting history lesson
  • 10. Overall
    This class has just furthered my interest in PR and made me excited to get out there and job search once I graduate
    I have learned all of the right things to do during an interview, what to have in my resume and portfolio, what to wear, proper etiquette, etc.
