As a graduating senior, trying to prepare for the workforce has proven to be quite terrifying. There seem to be a million possible routes and I am supposed to choose one. Your idea of brainstorming a dream job is an overwhelming task. I love the idea of looking around and making a job search an interactive process. There are so many positions that I likely don't even know exist. Thanks for the links to @iwantherjob  and @theeverygirl_ . Do you have any tips specifically for recent college graduates?

With respect to point two, you have posts coming out five times a week. As an almost college graduate blogging about the media/pr industry and professional development, how many posts might you recommend I publish weekly? I like the idea of an editorial calendar but five times every week seems like a lot to me.

The video turned out great! What program did you use to create it? 

As frustrating as it is sometimes that public relations hiring agents are looking for more than just resumes and cover letters, I have to be honest in that I have had some job applications that are really enjoyable. Any application that is looking for me to be creative gets pushed to the top of my list. The thinking? If they want to know I can be creative when I apply, they likely are in need for someone to hit things out of the park with creativity. What's the most fun job application you've had to fill out?

 @gonzogonzo Thanks! I am hoping to show up on a list like this some day. Or maybe a list about female CEOs of Fortune 500 companies? I'd be happy with either! Do you have any tips for my blog? katiekeidan.wordpress.com

I love that these are all women and that each one offers something a little different to the social media conversation.  What do they all have in common that made you choose them for your list?

 @adriasaracino This is so helpful! Over communication can never hurt. We certainly have the original goals in writing so revisiting those could help reevaluate where we are and where they'd like to be. Thanks again for your help!

What recommendations do you have for clients who decide to change their goals in the middle of the process? Following your step five by checking in and reevaluating has prompted a shift in some of the objectives which seem to be drastically different from what was established early on. The clients are a pair who do not seem to agree on their overall goals. Starting with one set of goals initially, then being asked to switch abruptly while keeping the old goals in mind is proving to be quite difficult. Conflicting goals and conflicting client partners are making our overall effectiveness challenging. Any ideas?

I'm so glad to hear from a PR professional that Oreo is doing successful things with their communication strategy. I thought so too. http://katiekeidan.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/milks-and-katies-favorite-cookie/

I love that you integrate a "Tweetable Tip" into your posts. Not sure if my blog has enough people to make adding a tip effective (not that I have many tips to give) but maybe one day.

In terms of the #PRParty you hosted, I was brainstorming similar ideas for an upcoming event. There will be a raffle at the party and I suggested that we motivate guests to follow us by giving them an additional entry into the raffle if they tweet at us. It's amazing how easy Twitter makes it for marketers and media consumers to implement a communication strategy at no cost.
