As a member of Public Relations Student Society of America, I have learned first hand how helpful the Public Relations Society of America’s website is to students. The website guides users through the process of becoming a member of the society as well as allows you to learn about different chapters, and the benefits of membership. It also updates individuals on latest jobs in the market, recent news and upcoming events in the field. Public Relations Society of America allows posts the days of the upcoming webinars. Personally, my favorite aspect of the website is the job and career section. The site allows you to search for jobs, internships, post resumes, ask experts any questions, and it provides information about salaries. One incredible benefit for college and universities, PR agencies, nonprofits, government and state agencies, and health care organizations is the 25 percent discount they receive to post a job on the website. In regards to the job field, this website also provides links and dates to upcoming learning opportunities. The events teach professional development and training. One of the newest sessions includes teaching professionals in the field about the social media era and how to be more effective in terms of usage of social media.
If you are interested in more information or just eager to visit the site, please search: www.prsa.org in your web browser.

Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) now has a new strategy for 2014-2016. They have adapted the past mission and vision to help the profession continue forward and allow the association to be the best for it’s members.
The new vision of PRSA is to be more focused on allowing public relations to lead the way of achieving goals. This means that PR will no longer just be another aspect of a company but now come before marketing and advertising.
The new mission will allow all members of PRSA to achieve their goals without discrimination and by having the correct resources available. This means that PRSA will continually be changing to be the best association for public relations professionals.
PRSA is also going to be focused on growing the association because the field of public relations is growing rapidly. This will allow for a more diverse field as well as more input from members.
This is a video created by PRSA explaining the exciting plans for the future.
