Week 6 Class Notes

This weeks topic: Public Relations.

PR has never even crossed my mind. Until class today. It is a very interesting and all encompassing career path. It requires a lot of writing, relational maintenance, event planning, and education of others within and outside the company. PR is for maintaining and improving the image of the company and improving company-consumer relationships. The instructor speaking to us talked about how he worked for a mining company and how he had to tell the public what beneficial things they were doing for he town and for the environment. Most people have a negative mental image of mining operations but it was his job to portray the good of the company. This seems like such a demanding job but one that is so rewarding. I like how social this career appears and how connected you can be to outside sources. It seems like a very satisfying career and one I would want to become more familiar with and get some experience with. I was interested in finding more out about the PRSSA group and wondered if it would benefit me in a y way, being a Visual Media emphasis… Overall, seems like a solid career path.
