Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

The most important first step, in my opinion, for someone in College looking to pursue a job in PR is to gain experience through co-op programs or summer jobs during their undergraduate studies. It will place them one step ahead of their peers when trying to secure their first job.
