For students starting out in PR, it can be kind of overwhelming when it comes to finding internships, meeting professionals, learning about the field and just getting into it in general. To help you get started, here is a list of some of my favorite PR websites, blogs and people to follow on twitter.
MediaBistro: Offers courses in media training (from writing to public relations to social media), resources to find jobs and internships and a blog with a lot of great information!
Mashable: the best online resource for social media and technology news and information!
DKNY PR Girl: Love fashion? Love DKNY? This is one of my absolute favorite blogs from a PR girl in NYC. Besides offering killer fashion advice, she is pretty knowledgeable in PR and on the media as well. Check out her website and on twitter!
NYC PR Girls: No joke, these girls are who I want to be when I grow up. They live, work and play in the City that never sleeps and along the way, they share their experiences and a lot great public relations advice. Check out their blog and their twitter.
Oscar PR Girl: Another amazing fashion PR pro with an awesome blog – only this time, her fashion weapon is Oscar de la Renta. I’ve only recently discovered her on twitter and I’m already in love with her site and advice!
PR Daily: Need some quick PR advice? Ragan’s PR Daily is the place to go. It is outrageous the number of times I tweet their articles!
The PR Closet: Interested in fashion, beauty or entertainment PR? Alexis is the girl to follow. Her blog gives amazing insight on the PR industry – she answers questions, gives advice and even shares her own experiences. What could be better?
PR Breakfast Club: Again, lots of great articles with advice and tips. The PR Breakfast Club is great with a morning cup of coffee – or at anytime of the day, because as we all know, PR pros (and students!) love our coffee!
These links are great resources for anyone interested in PR and I hope you’ll check them out!
