Setting Yourself Apart and Learning More About PR

We will be taking a short hiatus from the PR Freelance series, but no fear! It will be back soon!

PR students everywhere are doing things to set themselves apart. I blogged about this a few weeks ago on Career Girls.

Rachel Esterline, a PR student at Central Michigan University is definitely on the path to success with her online ventures. She writes a popular blog called A Step Ahead and recently has launched a PR book club called Learn It, Live It, Love It.

The idea behind the book group is that PR students and professionals will read a chosen book about PR or professional development each month and discuss it on the blog.

To join, e-mail PRBookGroup@gmail.com to become an official member of Learn It, Live it, Love it.

Send the following information:
  • Name
  • E-mail address
  • Blog name and link (if applicable)
  • Twitter (if applicable)
  • Book suggestions
  • Note if you are a student or a professional
  • Optional: A short (six sentence maximum) bio about yourself
I already signed up, and I hope that you will too! Any tiny aspect that makes you different from another candidate counts. Being able to discuss the PR industry and topics surrounding it are key when interviewing for a job or internship.
