Enhance Your Education
Getting an education means more than earning a degree. Employers are looking for experience, achievements and practical knowledge of the profession, all of which PRSSA can help you obtain.
PRSSA offers you a variety of opportunities to expand your portfolio. Work for high profile clients like the U.S. Census Bureau, The CW Network or General Motors as you implement a campaign in one of PRSSA’s many public relations case study competitions. Search the PRSA JobCenter to see a listing of internship openings nationwide. Start or join a student-run public relations firm on your campus. Be published in the PRSSA national newspaper or run for office as a Chapter or National leader.
As a PRSSA member, you can apply for many scholarships and leadership awards provided by the PRSA Foundation that recognize your excellence and provide funding to help you get through school.
PRSSA provides you information about the profession through its events, newspaper and blog, and gives you access to webinars, news, publications and case studies for professionals that can help you research best practices and stay abreast of industry trends.
