Stuff PR Students Say

Hey PR gals!

So Word Press is mean and is trying to get me to upgrade to share this (super embarrassing) video I made about stuff PR students say.

But YouTube is a beautiful invention.

Here’s the link to my videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4Sz8cnJ7zM&feature=youtu.be

Why Girl Power is Important in PR

200-16.gif

Cheers dolls,

Last night someone asked me why I made this blog about Women and Girls in Public Relations.

Well, it’s not too hard to explain:

  • Women are 70% of the PR Industry
  • Women in PR only get paid 77% of their male counterparts

 

Oh, look! A graph!

globalrankingfemalechart.jpg…..Interesting.

I am one of many that are calling out the industry and openly professing my support and appreciation for the women in it. 

Mad love to my PR Gals, keep rising to the top. XO200-11.gif

 

How Does #BREXIT Affect PR?

Morning PR Gals!

If you’re like me, this Brexit news has come as a shock. Last year I spent my fall semester in London, and based on my friends and experiences I never imagined the UK would vote leave.

Now that the shock has subsided, I couldn’t help but think how this would affect the PR industry. I’ve always dreamed of working and living in the UK (London, I’m coming for you!!) and this whole situation has got me questioning if it’ll be more difficult.

According to PR Week, who conducted a survey of PR Professionals in the UK, 78.65% wanted to stay in the EU. Out of these PR Professionals, 52.81% believe it will have a negative impact on the UK PR industry.200-2

Oh, no! I really hope everything turns okay. Things could be looking up shortly! Stay strong my UK PR gals.

Why C.J. Cregg should be your PR Idol

s03e04_712

[Samantha Jones WHO?!]

In case you have not been formerly introduced, meet C.J. Cregg. She’s the Press Secretary for the White House on the show The West Wing (now on Netflix), and she’s basically all of my #PRGOALS.

Here’s why!

1. She’s a BAMF who isn’t afraid of anyone.

2. And she never shies away from honesty.wow.gif

 

3. Yeah, not really the PR woman you want to cross.54ae5bdca5907_-_tumblr_lp892jpkbu1qzcjz0.gif

4. Let’s not forget the truth bombs she constantly drops.

5. C.J. doesn’t sit idly by when people try to tarnish her reputation, or the reputation of the White House.

6. BONUS: Unlike most female characters on television (women written by men who can’t comprehend that a woman can have a career and a sex drive) she has a career, is super intelligent, AND she owns her sex! INSPIRED!

IN CONCLUSION:

C.J. is quirky, clever, honest, and an amazing communicator. She rocks the white house press room every episode and inspires COM girls everywhere. We are BLESSED to have such a well-written PR woman. Thank you Sorkin!!!

 

The Quest for an Internship

In Boston there’s only one thing that has a higher population than Red Sox fans. And no, it’s not the amount of bad drivers… It’s college students scouting for internships. This winter, like thousands of students in the city of Boston, I came to the realization that I was about to finish my second year and needed to get started on the internship search.

My first thought: How the hell do I get an internship?

The process of crafting a resume and cover letter is exhausting, especially when you have to make five different versions to fit the different internships you’re applying to (and on top of that: the mountains of studying you have to do during the school year!)

And since I have been through this grueling process I’ve collected my favorite sources JUST FOR YOU!
