PR Students Get Agency Ready

Episode Notes

The pandemic continues to frustrate recent PR graduates looking to land their first job and still challenges students who watched summer and fall internships evaporate when the virus attacked.

Yet from the rubble of the 2020 PR job market emerged this summer the PR Council’s Agency-Ready program giving students and young pros the training needed to prepare them for careers in agency public relations.

Sarah gets the details of the PR Council’s groundbreaking initiative from its president, Kim Sample. Then Robert leads a Zoom conversation with eight young women who are among the two thousand graduates in the inaugural class. 

Also, the AP Stylebook Showdown proves no match for another Agency-Ready graduate, while the show helps one budding pro make a Labor Day weekend job connection!
