PR Internships/Jobs

April 20, 2009 at 6:19 pm (Uncategorized)

Hopefully after my group and I get this blog written, everyone will have a better understanding of how, when, and where to look for PR jobs. Our blog is due tonight, so everyone help us proofread it when we post it tonight for PROpenMic. I am really excited about looking into this subject on PR Firms. I haven’t really been looking, truthfully, so I’m glad I choose to be in this group because I can get points for learning! Anyone have any input to add to our blog feel free to add a comment into it tonight when we post it.
-Thanks!

Finally Got Started On My Resume…

April 15, 2009 at 2:30 am (Uncategorized)

I decided today, to start working on my resume. I hope I’m not the only one who puts off getting their resume together. Just because half my classes say it’s a must to have one close, I decided I should probably get on that. So I started, but haven’t finishes. I know we have to post our resume to socially orange sometime before the semesters over with, so for right now I’m going to try and build it up so I don’t keep ya’ll bored when I actually do post it. It’s weird putting on of my “doings” on paper because it shows what you’vereally done, which can be sometimes disappointing?…hah.

On another note, PROpenMic! I hope everyone’s as excited as I am about replacing our final!! A huge burden off my shoulders. I think I’m going to do the video blogging. I know a couple other people who want to join, it should be fun. I hope people are ready for some kick-butt videos!

Blogging bout’ JB

March 31, 2009 at 8:36 pm (Uncategorized)

So whoop whoop,

I like the new assignment goin’ on here. My blogs…not gonna lie, were pretty boring. I don’t blame any of ya’ll for not reading them. But if you did, thanks, very appreciated!!

SO it’s enrollment time, otherwise known as STRESS OUT TIIIME! I had to wait in the adviser’s office (notice for all you media style students its spelled with an “e”) for about 30 minutes just to ask one freakin’ question. Why is it that the minute you step into that dang office a dark cloud just hovers over you? This is such a stressful time in my life, maybe others as well. So please, vent.

I’m excited I only have 2 more semesters left. Can I get a HOLLA…kidding, kinda. I also have a question, does anyone know if you can use cognitive stat as a stat that counts towards JB requirements. Let’s hope so because I really want to take it. I can’t think of anything else right now besides enrollment, so here’s the first blog about JB.

It’s all about Networking.

March 2, 2009 at 10:47 pm (Uncategorized)

Thursday was Association of Women in Communication “Career Fair”.

Personally, I didn’t go because well…it was my birthday, and did really much of nothing that day. I do believe that it was an awesome opportunity for those who did go. I mean social media is all about networking. And that room was full of NETWORKING!! I hope a lot of ya’ll got some pointers on what the future might hold for social media.

I still can’t believe we are the first social media class at OSU. I can’t decide if I like twitter or blogging yet. I want to be good at it, but the only way is to actually practice on it. Everytime I decide to take some time to look at some of the features it has to offer, I just get on facebook. It’s just so much easier. I want to add it to my resume, but it’s not up and ready to show off to people like that yet.

Speaking of resume, how did the “Career Fair” go. Did you handout a lot of resume’s to people there. And have ya’ll finished your thank you notes? Any thoughts…

Not at all focused.

February 24, 2009 at 7:39 pm (Uncategorized)

So I’m trying to think about what to blog about this week, right?

When really…all I can think about is my birthday, the big 2-1 whoop! whoop! That’s the only thing really going on in my head this week, not gonna lie.

It seems my professors decided to slam in two test this week. I mean don’t have them on the weeks I don’t have a birthday. That would be too easy. Put them on the one week out the whole year I do.

So anyways, I have decided, since in my last blog I wanted to get involved, I will pull through and go the “career fair” that’s going on Thursday- My actual birthday- but whatever, I need to lock it up! I hope I can find some job opportunities. Really, I want to study abroad one semester before I graduate, but I mean I only have three semesters left, so I should probably get on that. Anyone have any ideas that I should think about when it comes to studying abroad?

Wish me luck on my reporting midterm this week! And 2 more days till I’m legal!!

Socially Crazy Orange.

February 23, 2009 at 7:21 pm (Uncategorized)

In class recently we have started creating  a Web site called “Socially Orange”. I love it and think it’s an awesome idea concerning Journalism students.

This class has already taught me so much about communication, it’s insane. I hope that more people start joining this site so that we have more people to relate to and talk to when it comes to social media.

And we also have been talking about Cindy Morrison and her thought on social media. I actually have met her too. I work at In the Raw in Tulsa and she comes in all the time. I said I was a Public Relations major and then we started talking about her job and stuff. She is a really nice person, who really love her job.

Overall, I am looking forward to seeing how this site turns out. I joined it today, so we’ll see!!

Getting Involved.

February 23, 2009 at 7:16 pm (Uncategorized)

I’m just now getting around to writing last weeks blog, sorry ya’ll.

Now that I’ve gotten the feel of OSU and campus, since this is my second semester, I’ve decided to get around to joining some clubs. The problem with that was that I didn’t have a recent resume ready and couldn’t join JB Embassadors this semester.

My goal for next semester is to definitely get involved in some clubs because it really does help with connections. I am in a reporting class right now concerning a “beat” we have to write about every week, and just from seeing how involved people are in this club, I really should join something. I was really bummed that I didn’t have my resume ready last week, because now I can’t join the Embassadors. Oh well, next semester.

Another interest I was thinking about was PRSSA. Being in Public Relations, I think this would be a good opportunity. If anyone has anything concerning this club that I should know about that would be awesome. Who all’s going to the “Career Fair”  this Thursday?

Class!

February 15, 2009 at 7:57 pm (Uncategorized)

So I haven’t really started tweeting more, like we’re suppose to, but I’ll get around to it. I like that I’m not the only person who doesn’t really know what’s going. Bill was asking people in class last Thursday if there was more then 100 people following some, and some kept their hands up! Wow, I need to get on the train.

Now, we’re suppose to start thiking of themes or whatever for this new page we’re going to create Tuesday. I didn’t really understand, he kind of explained it fast. All I know is we’re suppose to be talking to more people. This is social media, and that’s what we do in this class. I’ve never been so socially connected in my life.

I’m excited to see what this assignment brings to the table. Networking, it’s all about networking!

Just My Luck.

February 11, 2009 at 11:28 pm (Uncategorized)

So I have yet again been sick for another day. Apparently everyone’s been getting sick and I haven’t even heard of it until it hits me. I have had a sore throat and aching body for the past three days. I went out of town last weekend and felt perfect. Of course, when I have a crap load of homework, I would get sick. Like I said, “just my luck.” So I’m writing this in the library, trying to make this as exciting as possible, when really this whole week I’ve been in bed or taking cover from the stupid tornadoes that randomly happened yesterday. Oh, and if you think it’s bad being sick during the busiest week ever for me, try having your computer get a virus?? What the heck? Apparently I got my computer sick…how ironic? I have to buy this antivirus thing that cost like 40 dollar. If anyone has anything cheaper for computers with viruses hit me up! Because as a poor college student 40 dollars it a lot of cash.

Anyways, I shouldn’t be complaining. There’s a lot more serious stuff going on in the world then me getting sick. But that’s about all that’s going on in my life right now.

On a positive note: I turn 21 in 2 weeks!!! Maybe the life of Stillwater won’t be so bad after all. Haha!

Social Media!

February 7, 2009 at 12:06 am (Uncategorized)

Earlier this week, Bill said we had to now start following up to 100 people on twitter. I need to get on that because I feel like no really knows me on twitter. Ha, oh well, I think I can change that by the end of the semester. I’m excited for the fact that we are the first social media class at OSU.

Class on Thursday was a speaker talking about social media and networking. I actually enjoyed a lot of what she was saying. What really stuck with me was how passionate she is about helping others with the food organization she is involved in.

You can always tell if a person enjoys life just by the way they talk. She really likes what she is doing in life. You are what you do, and what she does compliments everything she is all about. I would love to get involved with people who are in need. It would be so rewarding to know you are making a difference like that. Knowing there are people in the world getting up as early as 7 o’clock to feed the poor is awesome. There is no money included…it’s all love. We need more of them in the world. I was actually thinking about volunteering at that next event they are hosting.

Also, I love the fact that she is working on a vintage store. I love vintage!
