16 Dec Twitter Chat Recap: Talking PR Internships With Eastern Michigan University
On November 24, I had the privilege to participate in a Twitter chat with Eastern Michigan University about the importance of internships. Students from EMich’s Social Media class shared their questions in a real-time conversation that highlighted the importance of confidence and differentiation.
Overarching questions were tweeted out from the @EMich_PR handle. These inquires focused on many of the concerns current PR students share, highlighting ways young professionals could enhance their resume, interview skills and digital profile.
As a former LaunchSquad intern and PR/Journalism major, I enjoyed sharing my experience about where classroom meets boardroom.
As I read through students’ questions, I tried to draw on my own internships to identify tangible ways students could stand out and make a positive impression.
… while others were curious how I found my way to LaunchSquad and the PR world as a whole.
