Unsolicited Marketing Advice has a very good post giving recent college graduates advice on getting their first jobs in PR. One tip I’d like to add: get an internship. I learned more in my two internships than I did in any of the classes I took. I was very lucky to find excellent internships with real work and true mentors. When I graduated I had a portfolio full of news clips, writing samples and other work from these fabulous work experiences. This is a must, in my opinion.
Of course, tips on how to find a good internship… well, you probably want to hear something better than “luck,” but that’s what worked for me. 🙂
Anyone have any tips on that?
