Don't miss the Grady career day!

I want to encourage all Grady students to attend the fourth annual Journalism & Mass Communications Career Day on Wednesday, Feb. 6. There will be a number of sessions throughout the morning in the journalism building, followed by a career fair at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education.

PRSSA members, what great practice for Real World Atlanta on Feb. 22! (Remember to register.)

IABC is sponsoring a session at 10 a.m. in the Drewry Room about creating your personal brand through communication. (A plug for IABC, which you should all consider joining, too.)

Our very own Katherine Strate will serve as one of the moderators for "Careers in Advertising & Public Relations" at 11 a.m. in room 404 in the journalism building.

I would love to have someone attending either of these sessions give a short recap at the PRSSA meeting with Chuck Reece on Wednesday, Feb. 6, at 6:30 p.m. in Tate 137. E-mail liz.azzolino@gmail.com if you are interested.

See the full schedule of events below. I was told that students are free to drop in the sessions at any time. Don't worry if you're late; just go!

For the career fair portion, dress professionally. It's always better to overdress. Bring plenty of resumes and your PRSSA business cards.

Have fun networking, and enjoy the day.
