I’m excited to announce that next month I will be heading out to Boston to attend the International PRSSA Conference. I will be representing the UVU PRSSA Chapter along with 15 other students. As I prepare for this conference I will be researching the companies and presenters that will be attending.
While I’m in Boston, I will get to go on careers tours of some public relation and marketing firms. These companies include Hubspot, Cone Communications, 360 PR, Pan Communications, and Marlo Marketing. They are all highly successful public relation and marketing companies back East. To prepare for this conference I will be researching over the next few weeks each one of these companies and learning more about how they run their company and what kind of strategies they use.
One company I am looking forward to touring and meeting with is 360 PR. This company focuses on blogger engagement, celebrity spokespersons, influencer marketing, and social media. These topics are all areas that I’m interested in learning more about. I currently have a travel blog and am interested in learning how to make my blog more influential and how to reach a larger audience. 360 PR works for some big brand companies such as: Virgin Galactic, Jelly Belly, Hasbro, and Nintendo.
This conference and career tours will be very beneficial for me and the other students attending. We will get to meet and talk to some key players in the PR world and will be able to network with as many people as we can find. This could open up the door for future jobs and internships. I look forward to my time in Boston and I’m going to make the most of this opportunity.
