TOW 9 & 10 Open Mic

The social network created by Robert French from Auburn University, PR OpenMic is a website available for PR practitioners, students, and grad students to network with other people interested in Public Relations.

This website has a lot of helpful links and tips to offer. First, you are able to make a profile to tell a little about yourself and your interests within the PR field. Then you can connect with people and discuss you interests or talk about the latest PR news. It is exactly what it sounds like, an open mic. You can blog right on the website which may entice readers to start following your blog. You can read other people’s blogs and there are links available to help you get started on your own blog if you have not done so. There are videos and photos that are updated daily and you can even upload your own videos for others to view. There are forums where you can post a question and have hundreds of people respond and spark up conversation or debate. I really enjoyed that you could search for jobs and internships on the site. This is my favorite part because as a college student about to be looking for a job it’s nice to know that there is some help out there. This is a great way not only to keep up with people in the PR world but also a great way to put yourself out there to join the PR world. I would recommend this site to anyone.
