Changing your major in the middle of the school year is never easy. I switched to public relations in the middle of my freshman year. I wanted to do anything I could that would help make me a successful public relations professional one day. I heard about PRSSA and decided to attend a meeting just to see what it was about. I soon found myself going to every meeting and learning so much while I was there. I ended up becoming the treasurer of PRSSA and have benefited so much from my time in PRSSA.
PRSSA opens up so many opportunities for internships and jobs. Every month PRSSA hosts a guest speaker. These speakers are always willing to talk with students after the meeting and give out their business cards. These networking opportunities are right in front of you and can open the doors for your future. There are also various conferences you can attend to learn more about public relations. These conferences are also a great way to network and meet professionals in the industry.
PRSSA has been so beneficial to me. I have had the opportunity to network with professionals, attend conferences, build my resume, learn more about public relations and make friends. I have personally gained so much from this organization and I will forever be indebted to all that it has given me.
