We’re in a unique position in college. We’re smart enough to be on our own, but we’re still trying to gain enough knowledge and experience to launch a career. I’ve experienced this dilemma before: I need an internship to get experience, but I need experience to get an internship. It’s an endless game of cat and mouse unless you can find a way to break that cycle—enter PRSSA. We’re the pre-professional organization for the integrated and strategic communications field. We provide opportunities to learn about various PR industries, specializations, and skills while networking and building mutually beneficial relationships. Getting involved early and staying involved throughout your time at BYU will help you build upon your experiences to land better internships and jobs.
