You Too: Social Media Boot Camp & Leadership Summit at Kent StateHeatherjmclogo750.jpg

Sun, 09 Mar 2008 14:20:36 +0000

      After my own brief 5 a.m. boot camp at the Summa Wellness Center in Hudson Friday morning (consisting of a mile run, Core Crunch class and a bit on the elliptical– I know, not much of a bootcamp for most, but certainly for me), I headed to Kent State University for the 7:30 check-in […]

Blogging for Clients… Just Not HappeningHeather

Wed, 27 Feb 2008 00:44:24 +0000

Where, oh where, has the blogosphere gone? With a final semester of college focused on the latest and greatest in social media do and do-nots nearly a year away, I seem to have lost some of my blogging fire. I’m not staying up-to-date on my feeds… not the ones focused on PR or marketing or the ones about […]

Everybody, from time to time, should take a step back and watch himself go by. -Thomas Watson Senior, Founder of IBM  I was seriously concerned about how much I would miss school once I graduated from college… I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t studying, working on homework or learning something new, and I […]

Benefits from Taking Campaigns Already?Heather

Wed, 05 Dec 2007 00:44:43 +0000

This post is dedicated to the students about to present their campaigns (tomorrow) at Kent State…   All PRKenters (a.k.a. students in Kent State’s public relations sequence) heard horror stories about senior seminar/campaigns, which I wrote about here, from the time we entered the major.  All of those who had gone before us had the same words of warning.  It is the […]

FEMA’s PR BlunderHeather

Sun, 28 Oct 2007 20:50:11 +0000

I was watching CNN this afternoon after gutting my pumpkin and toasting the seeds when I heard about FEMA’s response to the California wild fires. I was blown away by the PR nightmare that has ensued. I actually sat around until they ran the story again to make sure I heard things right and then […]

Graduation and the Real WorldHeatherheather-graduated.jpg

As I mentioned in my previous blurb, I’ve graduated and entered the real world. I took two weeks off between my graduation and the beginning of my new agency job to travel (surprise), but now everything is catching up.  I’m still receiving e-mails from KSU listservs, which is bringing on a barrage of emotions ranging from joy to horror at […]

FAQs for Public Relations InternshipsHeather

Mon, 20 Aug 2007 13:32:09 +0000

A fellow Kent State journalism student, Marissa Ring, just completed an independent study this summer focusing on public relations internships, which are a requirement in our PR sequence. One result of her research was a list of FAQs that I found particularly helpful to PR interns at Kent State and elsewhere. She interviewed a number of interns in order to provide […]

I admit that I’m neglecting the blog this summer, but I’m going to blame this last break on my vacation sans Internet. What I wanted to mention before I left was that I was able to take part in the first-ever Cleveland Intern Crawl on Monday, July 30 and had a blast! Despite the alcoholic […]

Year-Round PR for Kent PRSSAHeatherprssa.jpg

Mon, 16 Jul 2007 21:17:09 +0000

Just a brief note, but I wanted to put in a plug for the Kent State PRSSA chapter that is working all summer long to bring members news and updates. Of particular interest to me in the latest edition of the PRSSA e-newsletter is an article on my friend Desiree Bartoe who’s completed four internships […]
