Share Your Knowledge: Write for the PRSA Tampa Bay Blog

As a PRSA member, you know how many talented communicators come to our meetings, trainings and mixers. You’ve learned some great PR tips from our speakers, as well as from the people you happened to sit next to at lunch.

So here’s a way to continue the conversation — write for this blog.

The PRSA Tampa Bay blog may be the best way to reach the region’s leading communicators. As PR practitioners, we’re all looking for ways to master our craft and learn about new techniques and tools.

That’s why we’d like to hear from you. The PRSA Digital Communications team would love to see your posts on:

  • New pitches and campaigns that have worked especially well in Tampa Bay
  • What’s next in social media platforms
  • Profiles of speakers who will be presenting at the PRSA Sunshine District Conference
  • And more

 

Keep the posts to 500 words or less. Generally speaking, we’re looking for posts written by PRSA members that help educate people about PR techniques or ethical issues. Posts should not promote one particular company or product.

If you are a PRSA member and have an idea for a blog post, feel free to contact Curtis Krueger at [email protected] or simply send your proposed post to [email protected]. Our team will get back to you with edits or questions.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

— Curtis Krueger, APR, digital content committee chair; and the PRSA Tampa Bay Digital Communications Committee

EVENT POSTPONED: April UT PRSSA Mock Interviews

UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. WE WILL PROVIDE THE NEW DATE ONCE DETERMINED.

PRSA Tampa Bay will hold a “Mock Interview” session at the University of Tampa with aspiring interviewees from UT PRSSA. The event will take place on Tuesday, April 16, from 8 to 9:30 p.m. at USF, exact location to be announced soon. A light dinner will be provided following the event.

Interviewees will come prepared as though they are actually meeting with you (the “hiring manager”) to discuss their qualifications for an entry-level public relations position in your organization. They will have resumes and portfolios, and they will be “dressed for success!”

You will evaluate them based on their preparedness, their professionalism, and their experience gained through internships and/or work. Honest and thoughtful feedback will help these young men and women better prepare themselves for their approaching venture into “our world!”

If you would like to be a part of this exciting new initiative designed to assist our future professional colleagues in getting their start, please email Kirk Hazlett, APR, Fellow PRSA, at [email protected].
