Ohhh, Perez Hilton… Wednesday, Apr 21 2010 

I know I can’t be the only one who thinks Perez Hilton is hilarious. Yes, sometimes he’s a little mean, but who isn’t?! I for one LOVE Perez and read his blog daily as well as his fashion blog (CoCo Perez.) I read this entry today and i found it interesting…

Chris Brown? Throwing a benefit concert? I thought the only thing he could throw was a mean right hook?

Well, just like Perez says at the end of this entry, I hope this is about helping those who need it and not just trying to make himself look good. Good luck to Chris’ PR people–Lord knows they need it!

Still trying to rehab your image, eh?

Almost 4 months after the terrible earthquake, Chris Brown will be holding a concert in his home state of Virginia to benefit Haiti relief efforts.

The May 15th Virginia Stand Up! A Call To Action concert will feature sets from Brown, Keri Hilson, T-Pain, Juelz Santana and Mario with proceeds going to both the American Red Cross and the Central Virginia Foodbank.

Chris said he “wanted to find a way to contribute personally to the ongoing Haitian relief effort and also support an organization that helps people in need in my home state.”

It’s commendable. We just hope this is more about others rather than a publicity stunt.

PR-Real World Wednesday, Apr 21 2010 

I know I should have blogged about this a long time ago, but I never got around to it so here’s my blog about PR-Real World…

Back in February PRSSA members here at GSU were given the chance to go to Atlanta to attend a conference run by Georgia (as in the state, not the school) PRSA. It was called PR Real World and it gave students from around the state, as well as Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina, the chance to network and ask professionals any questions they wanted. My favorite part of the entire day was when we got to have our resumes revised by the professionals. They gave helpful tips like how to lay out your education, work experience, etc. as well as what to include and what should be taken off. That was the best and most helpful thing of the entire conference in my opinion. Oh, another tip the professionals told us was to send a hand-written thank you card after you go to an interview. It helps them to remember you and it’s polite so that sticks in their mind.

I would definitely recommend this one day conference to anyone looking to get into the PR industry as well as anyone who is graduating soon because they also held a career fair. I’m excited for the one next year because I’ll be graduating (finally) and I’m hoping to make some connections that might help me in the job search process.

Below I’ve included a link to GA’s PRSA website as well as the national PRSSA website so you can check it out and look for upcoming events and/or conferences. I HIGHLY recommend them! They’re fun and beneficial!
