The Spring 2016 semester looks like another great semester for Ad and PR students.
Ad Club's next meeting will take place next Tuesday, February 9 at 7pm in the Center for Career Development office (2nd Floor of Student Union). Note: If members want their resume critiqued one-on-one with a Career Development professional, they should arrive at 6:30pm before the meeting and the presentation will begin at 7pm. If they are not able to attend our meeting and want their resume critiqued, our contact Leslie Poytner will be available from 10am-2pm that day in the Center for Career Development office for Resumania.
April 6 - 8 will bring the PRSA Southeast District Conference to Knoxville. This year’s conference theme is: The Personal Side of PR: Where Connecting With People Can Change Your Trajectory. Public relations students can volunteer to work at the event. I hope you will attend all or some of the conference to network with PR professionals.
UT Social Media Week, March 28-31, will bring some of the most accomplished social media experts to campus to talk about social media in political campaigns, sports, new trends, tools and more.
The fields of advertising and public relations continue to thrive in today’s economy with projected growth rates of 6-9% each year. UT advertising and public relations alumni work across the state, region, nation and world. I hope you will get involved in our student organizations and begin your professional development today.
Stay tuned for more information about School of Advertising and Public Relations activities and opportunities.
My best, Maureen Taylor, Ph.D.
