Freelance

•04/20/2010 • 4 Comments

When I graduate I plan on moving to Atlanta and doing freelance PR work for different small businesses and tattoo parlors. I was searching through some articles and came across this Q&A website. It had the question on what to charge and some answers that people were thinking were the best. This was really interesting to me because I have been wondering what I was going to charge people that hired me. Anyway, hope this can help others too.

Public What?

•04/20/2010 • Leave a Comment

Every time I tell people that I am a Public Relations, I always seem to get a weird response. I don’t know if it’s because I don’t really look like a PR professional, or maybe they just don’t understand what Public Relations is. I know that I have been told it’s just another useless degree, which doesn’t make sense to me because you learn pretty much every kind of communication technique that all companies love.

Anyway I found this website, where they kind of explain what Public Relations is and all that good stuff, just in case anyone was confused.

Just wanted to share

I know most of the people that read this will fellow PR majors or professionals, and I was just sitting here thinking about everything I’ve learned in my years studying. I know most of my blogs this semester has stayed on the topic or give reminders that I am graduating so soon..(Less than 3 weeks if anyone wants to know) so I decided to go and just type public relations into  Google and see what comes up. The first link was to Wikipedia so I just wanted to share what they believe Public Relations is.

My Love/Hate Relationship

I just have to say that I love social medias. It is the best way ever to stay intouch with people and meet new people. When dealing with Public Relations, the use of Social Medias will soon be the main way people hear about news and companies, in my opinion.

I know that I have heard a lot of things about keeping your image up so that you don’t look bad for everyone to see, which I completely agree with. I feel that sometimes it is hard to be yourself and keep the business image up as well, but for people who plan on representing others, it is very important to look responsible and intelligent.

From the companies I’ve worked with and talked to, if you mention how well you know the internet medias and how to work with them, then it is a big plus in their eyes.

However, They are so easy at distracting you when you are trying to do your work! 🙂
