For our last topic of the week in my Social Media for PR class, I was able to repeat last weeks topic and pick another guest blogger to post something about in my blog. This week I chose to share something from my friend and classmate, Meghan Beytagh.
In our Senior Seminar for PR class, we had to do a shadowing project in which we shadow a PR professional during the week. Meghan chose to shadow a professional at Abshire Public Relations & Marketing. She then chose to write a blog post, and embed her slideshare presentation into that post. I really enjoyed her presentation in class, so I chose to share it today. Thank you Meghan for being my guest blogger!
For this assignment, I had the pleasure of shadowing Kara Hooper. She works at Abshire Public Relations & Marketing which is located in Savannah,Georgia (this is where I am going to be doing my public relations internship in a few weeks). I had an amazing day! My day started off running a few errands and just getting to know Kara better. Some of the highlights of the day were when I got to help with some work for two of their current clients. These clients were the town of Garden City and The Coastal Bank which is located in Pooler, Georgia. I got to help create an invitation and write a press release. I also found out that no day is the same in the public relations field.
After getting a chance to spend a day at Abshire and get a peek at what a day is like in the public relations field, I am extremely excited about graduating and getting a chance to work in the field. I am also looking forward to completing my internship at Abshire Public Relations & Marketing.
Attached below is the Powerpoint presentation that I presented to my class:
