What is PR? That is the very question that many public relations students struggle to define; I know I did when I was in school not too long ago. During the past 17 months I’ve spent working at Cookerly Public Relations, I have learned that there really is no one single answer to this question. In a career with so many aspects and possibilities, it’s impossible to simply define it with one single description. If you are a student – or you know a student – who is interested in learning about a career in PR after college, we have an invitation to extend.
On Wed., Nov. 6, we invite students from local colleges to spend an afternoon at Cookerly Public Relations for a one-of-a-kind workshop: “Reality PR – Workshop for Prospective Practitioners.” This seminar for public relations students (juniors and seniors) will give them a taste of PR agency life and some real world experience. Cookerly PR pros will present information on crafting a strategic PR plan using tactics such as media relations, social media, crisis management and more. In addition, this workshop will focus on various writing methods for pitches, press releases and editorial pieces. Students will apply what they have learned with hands-on practice, and get advice from the pros.
When: Wednesday, November 6, 2013 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: Cookerly Public Relations 3424 Peachtree Rd NE Suite 500 Atlanta, GA 30326
Who: All public relations or communications students who are able to make the trip to our office
How: Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “Reality PR Workshop” to indicate your interest in attending
When your major is nursing you have a good idea of what you’ll be doing after college, same goes for many other fields of study, like teaching or engineering. This is not the case with public relations, and this is why Cookerly PR is reaching out to local college students through this workshop. We believe this is a valuable opportunity for students to experience PR outside of the classroom, and to get their foot in the door for possible post-grad internships and employment. Hopefully, we can help students figure out “what they want to be when they grow up.”
