@Britopian @belllindsay Love this answer, completely agree!!
@yvettepistorio @Britopian @StephanieFlo @belllindsay I'm sold on this group's choices!
@Britopian @belllindsay Only a few months?! Plus a job and a family? Did you choose writing > sleep? Or you're a robot and can write while you sleep, of course ; )
@EricPudalov Definitely - they've turned me into an interested reader of their magazine @Britopian
@belllindsay Yes ma'am. And think of the stories that we could create over Scotch! @Britopian
@Britopian I'm great, so glad I was able to chime in today. Thanks for the recos!! Will definitely look into both. I'm in the middle of a Red Bull magazine subscription thanks to a Klout perk - not a brand I would normally go after, but the mag is filled with thought-starting content and offers a new perspective when looking at my work
@belllindsay Yes. Like. +1. Share. #alloftheabove But when the content is right and the company/brand is a fit the writing should be natural @Britopian
@Britopian Brito!! What brand is at the top of your list in terms of stellar content strategy? And who should we be following for inspiration to get our creative juices flowing?
A great reco!! Paula and I met via Twitter thanks to @JasMollica. When I collected testimonials for Jason after he was let go Paula was one of the first to share her support. I saw how giving of a person she was through social media and today's #FF demonstrates how selfless she is every day.

Terrific reco! The more I read about and connect with Erica online I forget that we haven't met in person. I'm so glad social networks brought this gem and I together - now, to finally get our first meeting on the calendar ; )

Great post Arik! I recommend getting your portfolio ready - an important part of the job hunt that can be accomplished on the down low. When I was on the hunt I took time to compile blog posts, create case studies on my past projects and collect recommendation letters from mentors and peers. Finalizing your portfolio early in the process means you won't be scrambling when a fantastic opportunity comes along.
Look forward to reading the HAPPO Questions series!

Great insights Gini! Love hearing how happy this transition is making you. Creating less noise is something I've done over the last two months with my blog and social media in general. I took time to reflect on my direction and what I wanted to share. The time away allowed me to focus on what was happening in real life and realize I'm never to busy for the important stuff - saying yes to invitations, enjoying the new city where I had moved and spending time catching up with family and friends in the city I left. The reward? In three days I've drafted three fresh blog posts and am feeling energized to jump back into the swing of things.

Great post, Lauren. I went to a large university, but had similar roadblocks since PR was not offered as a major. Businesses and student organizations are always looking for free help and that mutually benefits us as PR people in search of experience. Looking back I have no idea how I managed my first PR program, I must have Googled "how to write a press release." As I see intern candidates come into the office, I think your story is one to be remembered. You have the experience because you took on the challenge, not because someone handed it to you. Congrats, look forward to seeing what's next for you!
