Hi all! Hope everyone’s week is going well – mine is off to a great start and can’t wait for the next few days.
Tomorrow is a fun work day and then Wednesday is actually my first PR girl happy hour. This happy hour started as a few close friends but has now grown into about 12 girls all within the field so to say I am excited is an understatement.
This is one of the many way connections are made and a network is built! In this industry, and many others, a network and the connections you have are so important. My network is how I got many of my internships as well as tons of references.
Building a network is also really fun. Starting out, I loved calling firms and finding someone who would take the time to talk to me. PRSSA also helped me find a ton of people as my school did firm tours of quite a few different cities.
The best part about all my connections are that they not only helped as I was working on getting to this place but they are also with me getting drinks or dinner now that I am working. I have made my network really close to me and relationships that I absolutely love.
So now not only are my friends part of my network but we are all working together to keep building out all of our networks!
Anyone have any connection tips that they would like to share? How do you keep in touch? x
