FPRA hosts networking event with local communication professionals

FPRA LogoThe Student Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) Capital Chapter is an organization in Tallahassee for local FSU, FAMU and TCC students of any major who are interested in a career in public relations.  Serving as a medium to connect them with practicing professionals, FPRA hold events such as the “Speed Networking” event.  This event took place on Oct. 16 at the FSU Askew Student Life Center.  Casual networking began at 6 p.m. with the event starting at 6:30 p.m. and continuing until 7:30 p.m.

“The networking mixers have been some of the most interactive and rewarding events for FPRA members to engage in,” said the organization’s student president, Pamela Rothenberg.  “Not only do students have the opportunity to meet potential employers they may want to work for, they get to learn exactly what they could be doing if they earn an internship with one of these interviewers.”

Armed with their resumes, professional dress attire and research conducted beforehand, the room turned into an engaging atmosphere.  The room full of aspiring PR professionals networked with new industry contacts to learn from them and with the hopes of potentially landing the internship or job of their dreams.

Over 15 employers attended this FPRA networking event, including:
