What is Public Relations to me? PR is the promoting, enhancing and protecting the image of a corporation or an individual. The publicist does his or her best to put its client in the best light. Without PR, clients wouldn’t be able to protect themselves from the media frenzy and most likely would do a terrible job filtering what they say about a scandal.
Public Relations provides a service to the general public and all media outlets by giving them better knowledge on how and why their client is doing what they are doing. Publicists are the protectors.
I have personally learned a lot about what PR is, how it works, and the history of PR from this class, Principles of Public Relations. through all the group actives and social media campaign project, I’ve learned how to deal with others in a group, whether we have the same ideas or not. Collaboration is a big part of PR and this class proved how important it is.
This project was slightly intimidating at first. Looking at all the requirements and computer savvy knowledge required made me a little nervous. But with the knowledge i had gained from this class and others, I was able to understand all aspects and put together a well made blog.
This blog is very helpful at keeping all my work I’ve done for internships and other classes together in one organized place, as well as keeping my resume right at hand.
