Upcoming Meetings and Events...and another blog to check out!

Lots of exciting things happening...

First, we have our career workshops: Three Steps to More Success. Cheesy, I know, but that's one of the fun things about PR!

We've broken down the workshops into three topics: resumes and cover letters, portfolios and interviews. We're bringing in some of the best people in the field to help you land that next internship or job.

October 16: Resumes and Cover Letters
Speaker: TBD
Currently, we're talking to some of the HR people who handle the resumes and cover letters at Brodeur, a tech pr agency, to see if they can come in and speak to us. We'll keep you posted.

October 23: Portfolios
Speaker: Dr. Edward Downes.
Our very own Dr. Downes from COM will give us tips on building a portfolio
that will make you stand out above the rest.

October 30: Interview
Speaker: Glen Schwartz from Fleishman-Hillard.
Glenn, the internship coordinator, interviews all the potential interns at Fleishman-Hillard, one of the leading global PR Firms. How do you ace that interview? He'll let you know!

Also, if you're interested in all the new media and PR 2.0 (ie blogging, social networking sites, YouTube and all that new fun stuff), you might want to check out Podcamp Boston 2: http://www.podcampboston.org. It's a conference for people who are interested in all the new media. It's free to register and free to attend. I'll be attending for one of my PR classes and Chelsea Alexander, our PRSA/PRSSA Liason will be attending, so feel free to join us. It's October 25-27.

Lastly, a blog that Professor Quigley, our wonderful faculty advisor, mentioned: Strumpette. If you like your blogs with some attitude and snarkyness, check it out. Go go go!!
