A Night of Networking with PPRA

Last night, Temple PRSSA and PRowl members enjoyed an evening of networking at The Philadelphia Public Relations Association’s annual event, Careers 101. The event, which was targeted toward students and young professionals, turned out a great crowd at Drexel University.
Approximately 20 Temple PR students were in attendance. They networked with professionals from a variety of fields in PR, listened to a panel of experienced speakers, won great raffle prizes and received critiques on their resumes and cover letters. 
The event was great, especially for younger members. Sophomore PRSSA member Tyler Cameron reflects on the event by saying:
 “The panelists gave us real life examples of what kind of person is successful in the current PR world. Listening to the PR professionals instruct us on interviews, work ethic, resume building  and general facts on how to make it in the public relations world really inspired me to do my best to be as successful as each of them. The interactive networking session really excited me about my future in the public relations industry, and confirmed I’m in the right major.”
