Thanksgiving can be a hectic time for all. Here are just three of Hana Bieliauskas’s ways to relate your Thanksgiving to PR.
Plan your menu
Always make a grocery list for your pre-Thanksgiving trips to the store, otherwise you’re going to forget something and be rushing the day of to find an open store. Also assign different people to bring each part of the meal, make sure everyone knows what they’re bringing!
PR professionals always need a plan to get anything accomplished. This allows for all necessary information to be included without forgetting anything.
Remember, one helping is plenty
On Thanksgiving, the average person eats around 4,500 calories. Watch how many servings you are eating. Even if it seems like a good idea at the time you will regret it later, trust me.
It’s all about limits—just like in corporate communications.
When you have too many posts on social media, it drives people crazy. Many people will unfollow your company’s social networks if they are receiving too many notifications. Everything is good in moderation.
Go ahead—break the wishbone
You have an equal chance with the other person pulling the wishbone on winning. Take the risk, you might get lucky.
With PR sometimes the best ideas come from risks that are taken. Go for it, you never know what the next big money maker will be.

Who knew that Vine would become so popular? With the 403 percent growth within the app Vine, it is very obvious that this could be a good way for companies to advertise. Vine and many other apps are great ways for companies to catch the attention of the Y generation, those that have social media so easily accessible. The age that children get smartphones and are involved in social media is becoming younger and younger which could be very beneficial for companies.
Social Media plays a huge role in advertising and creating interest in products. It is extremely beneficial for companies. It also allows companies to catch the attention of many different age groups and audiences, allowing for higher product sales.

Social media is a growing tool that many businesses and companies are utilizing. Public relations is grasping onto the idea that social media provide brands a frontier of connecting with clients and customers. Many companies go head first when they are starting off in social media. There are some important tips that will help them tackle social media.
Many companies build rapport by tweeting, posting and mentioning different aspects they like about a situation or topic. This allows companies to change to the way views or followers want them to change. In sense it is kind of like a focus group online, allowing citizens to give feedback and evaluations on what companies are doing. Social media promotes growth and prosperity and should be utilized.

Are you questioning if a college degree is worth it with this economy? Think again.
As we all know, the unemployment rate is high in America. Many of us have that thought in the back of our mind that we try not to think about, “am I really going to find a job when I graduate?” Many of us also wonder if the college degree is worth the pricey tuition we pay. Well, I have something to say to ease your nerves a little bit. Even though the unemployment rate for those recently graduated from college is 8.9 percent, the rate for those who earned a degree in Communications is only 7.3 percent. This is relatively low especially if you consider your other option: dropping out of college. The unemployment rate for those without at least a bachelor’s degree is a shocking 31.5 percent. I know you are worried about finding a job now, especially with all your schoolwork piling up, but don’t question your education. Don’t worry about landing your dream job right away because employers tend to prefer those with higher education for almost any position. Earning your degree looks a little better now, right?
