Every winter, the weather in a city may be cold, but not below freezing. This winter, New England went through a wrath of relentless snowstorms. Bosto...

When I was a freshman, I didn’t even think about going to a professional organization. I didn’t worry about looking for a job in the future, or planning ahead. I joined BU PRSSA at the beginning of sophomore year.

Unleashed PR at BU PRSSA is the perfect place for students like me to network with different organizations, socialize with other students, and understand the basic contents of graphic des...

I joined PRSSA at the beginning of sophomore year. As a college student, PRSSA was the perfect place for me to start a career. I was the member of the media design group. At first, I was scared because I thought PRSSA was a super professional organization and I didn’t know anything about website design or graphic design.

Before the first meeting, 1,000 questions popped into my head. Will people lau...

Since September of 2016, I have been interning with a small, bespoke public relations firm in the heart of Boston named Kortenhaus Communications. Located on Newbury Street, the firm consists of no more than 12 employees. The small size doesn’t stop them from conquering the city, as new clients have emerged almost weekly since I began my internship. Since the agency is small but they take on a goo...

Last summer I went “abroad” in Washington, DC. I had the pleasure of working for a company called Picture Motion. They are an advocacy and marketing firm focusing primarily on social justice documentaries. What I loved most was the small office. About 10 people made up the Picture Motion staff and two were at the DC office. That means there were three people overall including me, the intern. It wa...

I think I was in 10th grade when I decided I wanted to be a Communications major.

 

The thing is, it was the only field that I felt that I could go into and actually make a decent living – but I didn’t even really know what studying communication meant. All I knew was that I loved English, and I wanted to have a career that would let me utilize my writing skills without teaching.

 

When I told my pare...

If you flew somewhere for spring break you most likely experienced the headache of the current state of airlines; personally, I don’t remember the last time I had a seamless ride home.

With a steady arms race to reduce prices, companies have been forced to jeopardize customer experience in multiple ways: bringing the seats closer to one another, offering no complimentary food on the flight, cramm...

Finals have ended, seniors have graduated, and summer is in full swing. Even though it is “vacation”, we can still use summer as an opportunity to grow professionally. Whether you are traveling, working part-time or interning, there are ways to improve your PR skills so you can be ahead of the game in the fall.

 

If you have a PR internship, you’ll obviously be practicing PR on a daily basis, but do...

I think I can speak for most of the American population when I say most of us are not surprised that Hillary Rodham Clinton has declared her candidacy for the 2016 Presidential election. What did surprise me, however, is the way Hillary has gone about her campaign.

Besides the fact that I am a public relations major, I am also taking two courses - Women & Politics and Media & Politics. Taking thes...

We’re taught that things are one thing: big or little, black or white, jumbo or shrimp.

 

But in my life that’s not the way most important things work. They’re often what they are and the opposite of what they are. Threats are often opportunities. Weaknesses can sometimes be strengths.

 

As COM PR students, we assume you’re here to learn how to succeed in the field; how to adapt to “the way it is.” Ho...

Every winter, the weather in a city may be cold, but not below freezing. This winter, New England went through a wrath of relentless snowstorms. Boston residents were pushed to their breaking points and unfortunately businesses in the area weakened in monthly sales. The solution? Joining together to start the #DigOutDineOut campaign to promote specials on social media this spring to make up for lo...
