At this year’s PRSA International Conference we had the opportunity to meet with a number of recent college graduates excited to enter the profession and, even better, those who’ve landed jobs across the country and are hitting the ground running. While some of these junior practitioners are just entering the workforce, it was pleasantly surprising to hear that they are hungry for tips and information on how to be a better PR professional. Almost unanimously, the first few questions from those we met rounded out to “how can I be better at my job?”

Self employed. The first time I wrote those two words in the space that asks for “Occupation”, I couldn’t help but smile. After 28 years of working for others, this was the first time I was able to say that I now worked for myself.
Don’t misunderstand. I wouldn’t change a thing in my career even if given the chance. I was very fortunate to be able to apply my college degree (Speech Communications, Auburn University ’81) in my chosen profession. But being able to apply that training and knowledge in a self employed manner is different – good, but different.
