How We Improved Our Networking Skills
Hello! So just last week, for those of you who missed it, NYUPRSSA went to a mingling/social networking event held by NYPRSA. It was an awesome time at The Australian (near Times Square) getting business cards, presenting ourselves to PR professionals, and getting a glimpse of the PR life in the real world. PR professionals from different agencies got together to discuss their companies’ purpose and exchanged contacts — lots of “mingling.” A lot of the members of PRSA NY were shocked to see us so actively coming out to the event, and it was super encouraging to hear wonderful compliments of us really trying to join the PR world. In addition, we met a fellow undergraduate PRSSA organization — the chapter at Hunter college.
Getting to know fellow PRSSA members from different universities was also a lot of fun, but don’t worry if you missed out! The great thing about PRSSA and PRSA is that there are so many events/campaigns/competitions/conferences to attend that missing one won’t hurt too much.Keep in mind that public relations is all about making connections and keeping in touch once you’ve made those connections, so it’s essential that we all actively seek to establish relations with our possibly future bosses! Don’t feel pressured, there will definitely be more events to come, so join us next time!
