Key Points:

  • Experience is more important than a GPA.
  • You might not know what you want to do right now, but you figure that out as you do internships and get more experience.
  • Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something, but be sure to always look at the big picture.
  • Always think of who, what, where, when, why, and how.
  • There is nothing wrong with asking for help.
  • Network, network, network!
  • The first time you talk to someone, you aren’t selling anything. You are trying to make them your friend. Listen and let them talk.
  • When doing an assignment, always take it one step further.
  • Go to an interview with six questions you already know the answer to.
  • Jill started her own PR firm and if you want to do something like that, make a plan now.
