Quidditch, Whales and Public Relations
Principles of Public Relations is a pretty straight forward class. No surprises in this course, the class outlines the basics of what it would be like to work in a Public Relations setting. It gives details on everything from studying solutions to Seaworld's Whalegate (yes, I made that up) to working Public Relations in a sports setting. In fact, I volunteered to run a Twitter account for USF Quidditch. That decision was inspired on what I'm learning in this class. I'm obviously a big sports nut; working a Public Relations career with a sports franchise is a dream for me.
This class, Principles of Public Relations, has confirmed my desire to work in the field of Public Relations. Before this semester, I wanted to take up this major mostly because I felt like I had the skills to do the job well. It had nothing to do with the fact that I thought I'd actually enjoy working in Public Relations, I just felt like I had the basic skills to work well in the field. . However, as I am finishing up this course, I have realized that this is a field I am actually interested in. I enjoy the inner workings of Public Relations, and I feel like this is a career that I'll learn to love.
