Last week I spoke in one of my old college Public Relations association's meeting on a young professionals panel for students interested in PR and communication careers. Going back to my college campus definitely made me nostalgic, but I loved being able to share my 'year' of wisdom with current students and help empower them to take on their careers.
Ah, fall is in the air and let me tell you, it is nice! I love the Autumn season, and it’s also a prime time for internship/job hunting for those who took the summer off. When it comes to making yourself a Grade-A professional, you might want to brush up on some of the top skills that employers are looking for.
How many do you have? Which ones do you want to learn? Let me know in the comments below.

Last week, I had the pleasure of returning to my old school, CU Boulder, to be a guest speaker at a professional chapter that I was president of during my time in school. The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) meeting was on the importance of interviewing.
As I sat there sharing with current students vital tips and pieces of advice, it dawned on me just how critical the interview is in the stage of the job process. As a peer career advisor in school, part of my job was to coach undergraduate students of all majors in how to nail the interview process. I thought it would be helpful to share my best practices for you all, in case you are a young professional in the middle of the job/internship hunt!

For many of you young adults who will be looking for summer internships, or your first job if you're graduating in May; this one's for you. To start your new year job search, I’ve put together a couple of job search strategies and tips that will hopefully give you some guidance.
