Let’s just say… Bloomburg Businessweek isn’t exactly a PR website/blog web address, but then again, any current event source that PR individuals can gain is vital to create a well-rounded PR educate. There are seven drop-downs that you can choose from at the home page: home, finance, technology, innovation, management, small business and global. Under the home drop-down, you can choose the option “blogs.” Here, there are blogs relating to many topics from traveling to media to entrepreneurship. What does this business site have to do with a PR student, you may ask? Well, here’s my take on it.
PR professionals always are keeping up on everything. We are the social media gurus. Changes in society, politics, and citizens can alter what we are trying to accomplish in our everyday jobs. In seconds we can be forced to resort to plan B… or C. But many times, one of the venues we work with is a business. So shouldn’t it be smart to keep up with what businesses are saying about things? Staying in touch with what’s happening in the business world can be vital for our success.
As students, we should be well-rounded in all areas of education. That’s why we go through general education classes to obtain a broader perspective that could better help us in our career someday. Among others, Bloomburg Businessweek can help us stay in touch with topics that can come in handy some day when we enter in the PR world as a professional. And if, by any chance, it doesn’t, well, you will have a little history with whatever topics you choose to read!
