Our Speaker was Shonali Burke!
Shonali Started her own Social PR Consulting agency which has been going strong for 7+ years, however she has a lot of experience within small and large agency, in-house experience with ASPCA.
Shonali spoke about the real world and what to be prepared for, including:
- Prepare to pay your dues: No matter what you’ve done in school, you’re essentially starting from scratch
- Get friendly with research, analytics and measurement: “Context isn’t possible without numbers and begin exploring analytics
- Good writers will never be out of a job
- Say “yes” a lot: We will have to make time for our work life. Look for ways in which we can show our strengths
- Say no a lot… later on
- Don’t lose your integrity: There will be times you have to make a decision whether or not you want to continue employment, or if you will want to maintain integrity
- Be prepared to pivot
