Danielle Parmenter, SIUE PRSSA chapter president, hosted a fun and informative workshop on Twitter at our last meeting. If you weren’t there and want to learn more about Twitter, get in touch with Danielle. I am sure she would share her social media expertise with you.
As the professionals who visited the SPC 213 classes on Wednesday mentioned, networking and skill-building are critical in this job market. These tips are obviously not industry specific, and many of the professional development opportunities presented through PRSSA membership are not industry specific either. We currently have members who are not public relations majors who can attest to that. So, if you aren’t sure PRSSA can benefit your professional goals, think again.
Some professional development opportunities coming up for PRSSA members include resume and networking workshops, media communications guest speaker as well as agency tours and participating in PRO-AM Day at St. Louis University. In today’s job market, everyone needs to be networking, so what are you waiting for?
The deadline for the spring membership drive is Feb. 22. Annual dues are $70 and checks are made out to SIUE PRSSA. If you want to learn more about the benefits of PRSSA, feel free to contact one of the executive board members or stop by my office.
Pull up a chair and let’s talk.
