For those of you who don’t know, PRSSA stands for Public Relations Student Society of America. I joined the Grand Valley chapter of PRSSA in September of 2016, and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have met real professionals who are working in the public relations field and have gotten the chance to explore what the PR world is all about. I’ve taken agency tours, attended networking events, and gotten to know so many amazing people.
One of the largest benefits of joining PRSSA has been the networking aspect of it. No matter what field you are going into, networking is KEY. It’s what gets you that first internship, or that first job, or introduces you to that one person who is going to make an impact on your career journey in ways you could have never imagined.
