Women In PR Talk Radio: I Want To Work In Fashion PR
This past week, “Women in PR” held a radio broadcast discussing how to break into fashion PR. They answered some common questions: "How should I get into the fashion industry", "Are unpaid internships worth it?", "Can I get into fashion PR without moving to NYC?".
A few great takeaways from the broadcast:
1. You don’t have to move to NYC to break into fashion, but you really, REALLY should.
2. Internships are crucial for your post-graduation job search, because experience is everything.
3. With fashion PR positions becoming more competitive, you really have to sell yourself as if you are a brand. Well, in a sense you truly are. When you go after a job, understand that you will have to “pitch” yourself as the best candidate and stand out from the rest.
4. Volunteering for the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week may not be a bad idea. :)
Take a listen to the broadcast, and hopefully you’ll find some insight in it, as well! (P.S. There’s some confusion in the beginning, so skip to 22:30.)
In case you’re wondering, I’m an undergraduate studying PR. I started this blog to organize great PR tips, job postings, and other helpful tools into one place. So, this site isn’t just for me—-it’s for you, too! Take a look around. If you have something you would like to see on the blog let me know by submitting questions, pictures, gifs, whatever tickles your fancy!
