A student’s perspective on Public Relations
The real world is rapidly approaching as I edge closer to my May 2014 graduation from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Although I can say I am extremely scared for what is to come, I could not be more excited to start my professional career in the communications field. In my case, the communications field ranges anywhere from advertising to public relations. So, what excites me about the world of PR?
I feel comfortable speaking for most PR students when I say that I cannot wait to exercise my creativity and work in an ever-changing environment. From what I have learned PR is an incredibly versatile business ranging from social media to crisis communication. Every day is something different. As a student, one thing I worry about is being stuck in a monotonous job that does not bring me happiness. I want a job that keeps me on my toes; a job that I can happily wake up for in the morning; a job that involves creativity in communication and in writing.
With all this in mind, I can only dream of a job in PR and I cannot wait to see what the future of public relations has in store for me.
