Tips on The Avenue | “Overqualified to Intern, Underqualified to start at a PR agency.. What to do? “

7 Apr

Image

Dont’ you just love the Spring? It’s a time to reflect, meditate on where you are in your life vs. where you want to go– and best of all Spring Career Cleaning! This part isn’t always as easy-breezy…

Them: You have to get a degree to work in this competitive job market!

US: Obtains degree.

Them: Well, now you have to get a Masters, education is most important!

US: Obtains degree number 2.

Them: Well you’re a great candidate but you’re too qualified to work as an intern. I would offer you a position here at our PR agency, but you don’t have any experience.

US: blank stare….

Sound familiar? I will be frank, the job market is so tough, and it’s almost hard to give advice on how to fully get into it. I have worked in Customer Service, to Government Administration, to Staffing & Recruiting– and I still haven’t had my foot in the door at the perfect PR agency. So, in 2011 I took another route and began doing freelance projects (started without pay, now all projects are priced) and building my brand. Whether social media or joining professional networks, you have to transform into an asset for any organization you join.

How? I encourage you to seek out volunteer opportunities that relate to social media management, press coverage, writing, branding, etc. This will serve as experience and will add value to your candidacy.

Where are you located? Take full advantage of your current market. Also, keep writing—start a blog, or contribute to an existing one. I have learned that in this industry you can’t wait for the opportunity, you have to create it.

Be flexible in the roles you are applying for– as long as you are learning something. Be ideal in the jobs you’re applying for, if they require 5+ years of real-world experience, then you probably don’t qualify. On the flipside, if it is entry-level customer service, you will qualify.

I founded Giselle Avenue as an outlet for me to do what I love. I am currently looking for assistance, if you’re interested, you can visit OnGiselleAve.com and search “media relations” to get a gist of the role.

Bottom line, continue to build your portfolio as an individual and the right company will snatch you up! If they don’t know worries, you’ve been so focused on building your brand that you’ll be an asset to any company you’re a part of (even if it’s your own!)

P.S. You’re not alone.. check out this article about millennials entering the workforce.

4 Common Mistakes PR Pros Make on Twitter

1 Apr

GiselleAvenue:

Hey hey,

This is a great post about social media manners. I know it took me a year or so to realize that having a personal and professional account can be tacky. In order to gain credibility and maintain a positive rapport, one must choose to remain professional at all times. We are emerging into our brands, so much that there is a blurred line of the personal and professional outlook on a topic.

Keep your tweets tasteful, after all I’m sure we have been identified by our Twitter handle by our friends on occasion.

Twitter is by no means a new platform, yet for some reason, many PR pros—and professionals of all stripes—continue to misuse, misunderstand and not fully take advantage of it. Here are four common mistakes PR professionals are making on Twitter, and how they can fix them.

  1. Lacking personality: With their clients, co-workers and other peers following them, many PR pros fear being too personal on Twitter. However, it is certainly possible to remain professional and showcase your personality at the same time. At CooperKatz & Co. we constantly preach how incorporating our personalities into our writing enhances it, and the same holds true when restricted to 140 characters.
  2. Maintaining two separate accounts: Maintaining two Twitter accounts—one for personal and one for professional usage—may have been acceptable years ago, but it has since become largely frowned upon, and…
