You know you are a public relations student when there are no exams the last semester of classes. Just a bunch of presentations and a lot of RESEARCH!
In my public relations capstone class, ( core class needed to graduate) Strategic Communication Campaigns, the course is based around one big giant team project. To say the least, the class is intense. So intense that in order to participate each student must sign a nondiclosure agreement. With that being said, I will only be able to post generic information about the class project.
Each student must apply for a team position and the professors placed the students in teams based on the position applied and their resume and cover letter.
I applied for account executive and got the position! Hooray!
Description of account executive from the project summary: ‘The account executive serves as the liaison between the team and the the client and is the one who has to translate the client’s needs and thoughts for the team. She/he also takes the lead in presenting team ideas to the client and sorting out problems. The account executive is an agency context is the project leader. As a result the account executive is responsible for the overall strategy and final project execution and has to work with each team member on every aspect of the campaign process”
Now, operation team project is in full swing! Cannot wait to learn more about public relations and advertising!
