Where can I get job with my public relations degree?
Weber Shandwick is located in downtown St. Louis by the Edward Jones Stadium. PRRSA got to visit the fun, outgoing, and casual workplace on Friday November 4. They have a bar and a billiards table in there lobby.
After taking a short tour of their workplace we got to have a sit down meeting with eight of their employees. We discuss everything from a typical day to what skills are necessary for the job. They shared that they like the face pace of the job, having different challenges daily, getting to work on projects that they enjoy. Joey (Assistant Account Executive) shared that he gets to work with soccer and beer. Some their clients include Coca-Cola and Budweiser.
What Skills do I need? Some of the skills that they share that are necessary for a job in public relation included being efficient with excel, communication skills, and time management. They also shared that you will make mistakes as an intern. They best way of moving on is to accept that you made a mistake and not to make the same mistake again.
Weber Shandwick is an international business with 74 offices in 38 countries and 25 States. Their headquarters is in New York. Each office has a different theme and feeling to it. Some are very professional while others are more laid-back like the St. Louis office. The St. Louis office has 35 employees. A great resume that doesn’t waste any space is needed. Emailing and networking are they best way of getting a job at their office. Weber Shandwick also offers four month full time internships.
