A Public Relations Professional In The Making

The last few terms, as a student at the University of Oregon, I have gingerly been slipping my toe into the world of public relations. It is about time I kicked the door off its hinges and fully immersed myself in all things public relations.

With one year left, my graduation date is set for spring of 2013. The classes are becoming ever more time consuming, just as the hours of the day seem to have fewer and fewer minutes within them. As a student attending the School of Journalism and Communication, aiming for a double major in public relations and advertising with a minor in communication studies, I need to develop a concrete online presence now.

It is a digital world that surrounds us today. It is taught time and time again in both public relations and advertising that an online presence can be used as a tool to develop connections and display skills that could otherwise be overlooked.

The Public Relations Blog, from the point of view of a UO senior, is my simple attempt to break down the door and get involved in the public relations industry. By receiving feedback, reading professional/peer blogs, and practicing ways of communicating through various types of media, I will transition from a public relations student to a public relations professional.
