I am pleased to announce you that I am PR Job Seeker of the Week on Gen-Y PRogress, Lauren Novo’s PR blog. She informed me I was the first European PR Job Seeker she published, which makes me of course very proud!
Every week she gives a young graduate (or soon-to-be graduate) the chance to explain why he/she is a talented PR pro that deserves a chance. Next to that, she blogs about various topics concerning the PR business, ranging from social media issues to some of her more personal experiences.
Lauren’s blog was launched in September 2009 and has been up and running for over a year (hence her recent celebration post). Already, she was received national recognition in the USA by PR Daily, Brazen Careerist and top industry leaders and bloggers. Moreover, In March, she won a ‘judges award’ through the Florida Public Relations Association. In June 2010, her blog was nominated as best up-and-coming in the PR Readers Choice Awards! Quite impressive, hu?!
She is absolutely worth following on Twitter and adding to your blogroll!
Hope you enjoy the article! And tell me, what’s your opinion? What’s well written? What’s bad about it? What should I have emphasized more/less?
Looking forward to some useful tips!
Whether you are the coolest person on earth or the most stressed rabbit that ever hopped around, everybody is nervous for a job interview, especially if it is one of your firsts… Sweaty hands, self-confidence hitting rock bottom, checking what time it is every five seconds, your heart beating out of your chest, your blood rushing to the head, … The stress is omnipresent!
So before I leave the house, or even better, on the way to the interview I take the time to listen to these songs. If it’s necessary I’ll even sing along (though I’m sure you don’t want to hear that!)! You’ll be amazed by the therapeutic and calming effects!
Tina Turner – Simply the best
R Kelly – World’s greatest
Marvin Gaye – Ain’t no mountain high enough
Luther Vandross – Ain’t no stopping us now
Snap – The power
And here’s one to feel better in case you didn’t survive the selection process… 😉
Gloria Gaynor – I will survive
In my first post, I didn’t really say much about what this blog is about, so here’s the deal! Hope you like it!
I Heart Communications’ unique approach is to link widely spread communications concepts, insights and best practices to real-life situations, hoping to engage in Influential Interactions.
This blog captures and shares best practices and key learnings from a wide variety of experienced communications professionals by linking them to trending topics. Hook-ups will mainly be what this young communications pro comes across in his daily life, ranging from worldwide issues to personal experiences relevant to anyone who is interested in communications.
My areas of interests are very wide. Topics will therefore certainly evolve around the Big 3 of the Communications Business – Public Relations, Advertising and Marketing – without losing sight of an Integrated Communications Approach. As I am addicted to Social Media, you can certainly expect some posts on that theme too! Furthermore, I have a particular interest in Semiotics and Applied Psychology and a weakness for Creativity and Innovation.
I will try to post something every other day, but don’t shoot me if I don’t ;). As the icing on the cake, I’ll invite a guest blogger about once a fortnight!
I see myself as a dynamic hands-on young communicator, passionate about and dedicated to the cause of spreading the ‘I Heart Communications’ message. I recently graduated from Uni, after having finished an advanced master’s program in Multilingual Business Communication. I’m therefore looking for a first job experience, preferably in an English-speaking country.
I hope you enjoy reading the posts and I’m looking forward to some possibly Influential Interactions,
PS, I’ll start posting “real” posts as of tomorrow 😉
