PRSA Tampa Bay ‘Teams’ Up with USF PRSSA

By Kirk Hazlett, APR, Fellow PRSA/Chair, PRSSA/New Professionals Committee PRSA

Tampa Bay members recently “teamed” up with an eager cadre of USF PRSSA members in our first-ever virtual “Resume Review” event. In years past, we have been able to physically interact with these future PR professionals to review and provide feedback on their resumes that will enable them to be better prepared for internship and job applications.

This year, obviously, presented new challenges. Yours truly is chagrined to report that he had a total and absolute Zoom-based technological meltdown, but USF PRSSA President Alanna Mccary saved the day by immediately transferring all participants to that Chapter’s Microsoft Teams page and the show was on!

The review session ran for 1 ½ hours, with lively and constructive conversations between PR pros and future-pros, and a comforting sense of “the future is bright for our profession” was felt by all of us. Feedback from USF PRSSA members has also been highly appreciative.

A sincere note of thanks to these PRSA Tampa Bay members who generously volunteered their time and expertise for our October 8 virtual event:

  • Jenna Stock, PRSA Tampa Bay Immediate Past President
  • Bart Graham, PRSA Tampa Bay Membership Chair
  • Joseph Priest, APR
  • James Raulerson, Past President, PRSA Tampa Bay
  • Scott Dietz
  • Leah Harms
  • Kirk Hazlett, APR, Fellow PRSA, PRSA Tampa Bay Ethics Officer & Chair, PRSSA/New Professionals Committee
