Adventures in PR Land

Archive for June 2009


In the midst of dismal unemployment stats and news of the economy, it is hard for a pr student…. well any student for that matter to break into the industry. In the article, ” I wish I Were Graduating This Year” blog post  by Jeremy Porter, talks about the advantages new pr/journalism students have and how they can make it in spite of the hard economic conditions.

Some points her made were

  • Students today can help bring their older employers/employees up to speed wit social media because we have incorporated it into out lives
  • Today’s students are more comfortable with technology. This knowledge is vital because as a society we are at a cusp where technology must be understood and used for daily life.
  • News and PR industries are transforming practically overnight. Recent graduates can adapt to these changes and be prepared for it because they are in it.

Roberts signing out on the Roberts Report

Hey everyone, this is Sabrina Roberts from “The Roberts Report”. I haven’t been writing because I was taking 20 credit units during a quarter system ( a new quarter starts every 11 weeks) plus work. I’m back.

Graduation was beautiful. All of my classmates were there and we were celebrating our accomplishment together. Later I went home and had a party with my family and just celebrated the day.

I was a rollercoaster ride to get me where I am today and I know I must be open to the new opportunities ahead.

From the last time I wrote, things are looking much brighter. I may have an internship at Cal Poly’s public affairs office and I recently got a reply from Metro, a major Los Angles transit company.

Hopefully in the next few months I will grow more as a pr professional and as a person. I am so excited and I will keep everyone posted on the blog about my experiences as a graduate, intern and entry level employee ( man that feels good)

Thanks for reading and watch out for new post.

Signing out, Ms. Roberts on …. The Roberts Report
