More PRSSA Tours (Padilla Speer Beardsley and The Minnesota Wild)

Today, my group of SCSU PRSSA members along with a the UW- Eau Claire PRSSA toured Padilla Speer Beardsley and had a following tour with the Minnesota Wild in the Exel Energy Center.

We gained a lot of insight about what we should include in our cover letters and resumes, some interviewing and internship tips, and essentially what to do to get our foot in the door at one of these places.

One of my favorite parts about these tours is seeing what people do on a daily basis and the environment they work in.  It really gives me some insight on the areas I would like to get into and focus on later in my career.

If you are attending college and are a junior or senior taking your major classes and trying to figure out what is next after you graduate, I would highly recommend touring different companies and agencies around your area and being a part of an organization that focuses on what you are attending school for.  Most companies are more than happy to show you around their office, tell you about what they do on a daily basis, and give you some tips on what you can do to stand apart from the pile of applications they receive daily.

My advice: Get involved, and gain as much knowledge and connections as you can, it will really help you out in the long run!
