One of the things I love about working in public relations is the support system I get from the Phoenix PRSA Chapter. Being a part of an active organization where you can meet new and experienced PR pros has a ton of benefits – being able to meet people, getting insider tips, relating to others who experience similar situations in the workforce – the list goes on and on!
On Wednesday night, the Phoenix PRSA New Pros committee put on a PR Speed Dating Happy Hour at Bliss ReBAR in downtown Phoenix. The new pros in attendance got the opportunity to ask away about all sorts of industry questions to the experienced pros in a casual setting (note the sandwich in my one hand and a pen in the other).
There were many words of wisdom throughout the night. Here are a few:
These are only a handful of the many takeaways from the night. If you’re new in the PR world then you should consider joining your local PRSA or PRSSA Chapter and attend these type of events to learn more and meet awesome people.
For all the experienced pros out there, what random piece of advice do you have to share with us new pros?
