Only the remainder of this week and next week left of Dr. Moore-Copple’s PR writing class, so it’s crunch time!
Although our class has not been meeting the last few weeks, we’ve all been hard at work. Roaming Tigers PR, my group for our service-learning campaign, meets every week during our usual class time to work on our campaign materials. Now that the exciting part of creating the SCVNGR trek for BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo is over, we have to complete a few more projects to help the continuing success of their trek.
Speaking of the success of their trek…
As of today, BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo has had close to 90 people use their new SCVNGR trek which was launched only three weeks ago! We’re very excited to see that people are taking advantage of this unique opportunity to interact with the zoo. We still have a few more items to complete to help the zoo with promoting their trek, including a brochure, instruction sheet for workers and a short video. Once these are finished, our hope for the trek is that it continues to get more attention and that word of mouth spreads to make it an even bigger visitor attraction.
Another thing I’ve been working on for this class is my online portfolio which is due on Monday of next week. I’m actually very excited that this class forces me to create things that will eventually help me tremendously on my job search. Dr. Moore-Copple gave us instructions on how to create an online portfolio using Jobrary.com and what we should include in it. We’re required to include at least 10 pieces we’ve worked on this semester in PR writing, but I will also end up using this online portfolio to showcase all the work I’ve done through my internship experiences and my other mass communication classes.
Finally, all our hard work will wrap up on Wednesday of next week when we turn in our mini-campaign book and present our campaign to the class and special guests.
I can honestly say that my PR writing class has improved my skills as a public relations student. I’ve learned how to properly write and create different public relations materials and gained real-world experience working with a client. I’m excited to take the skills and experience I’ve gained through this course and apply it to my internships and future career.
