The Hoosier Chapter’s PRSSA committee assists accredited Indiana PRSSA chapters by providing access to professional development opportunities, and helping to develop highly qualified, well-prepared professionals. Take advantage of what the committee has to offer:
HALF DAY WITH A PRO: Nov. 14
Indiana PRSSA students are invited to take part in Half Day with a Pro scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 14. This annual event gives PRSSA students the opportunity to job shadow PR professionals at PR agencies, nonprofits and corporate offices in the Indianapolis area. Students sit side-by-side with a paired PRSA professional to learn about their day to day responsibilities, office environment and PR tips for the trade.
Click here to complete the Half Day with a Pro student registration form. The deadline is Friday, Oct. 19.
Immediately following Half Day with a Pro, students are also invited to attend the PRSA Hoosier Chapter professional development luncheon, which gives students the opportunity to network with other industry professionals. The topic of discussion for the luncheon is Real Talk about Fake News.
*Students are responsible for signing up and paying for the luncheon separately, as well as managing their own transportation to/from the event. Registration for Half Day with a Pro is required to attend the luncheon. To learn more about the luncheon, please click here.
