First European PR Job Seeker of the Week

Hello all!

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!
