Employers: Harron and Associates is a full service PR agency that provides services for non- profit agencies; and Greenhorn Connect which is a website for entrepreneurs to learn about networking events in Boston

Pardees’s Wisdom that will Serve You Well

  1. It is very important to Network before you get a job and way before you graduate. There are networking events for Communications Majors and careers posted on Eventbrite.
  2. Get off of BC campus and meet others
  3. Take a course at BU- BU provides their students with new social media courses, which are very helpful in the PR field and looks great on your resume, because BC does not provide these courses
  4. Connect with other BC alumni on Linkedin- it is helpful and they are very willing to speak to you.
  5. Contact firms and companies that you may be interested in, and request an Information Interview so it gives you an opportunity to practice interviewing for the position you may want.
