“What Are You Listening Too?”(Topic of the Week 12)

This semester I am currently enrolled in a Public Relations Writing course at Georgia Southern University.  Each week we have a “Topic -of-the Week” to report on.  Through out the semester we have covered some very important information that has been discussed in out Topics-of-the -Week.  This past week we were asked to listen to a podcast about Public Relations.

I think this was a great assignment, because it forced us to do something that we otherwise would have not done.  It made us step out of our normal routine and take some time to learn from others.  We often get caught up in our daily routine’s and we convince ourselves that we have everything figured out.  Reality is that each new day is an opportunity to learn something new, and we should take advantage of that opportunity.  This is especially true when considering our future career.  Now, while we are in school is the time to take advantage of learning from those who already have experience in the work field.  They have already been working and developed knowledge and first hand experience about what to do and what not to do.  If we are smart, we will learn from their attempts, failures, and successes.  We can learn so much from them, if we are just willing to listen.

I listen to the Inside PR podcast and found it very interesting and insightful in ways.  They gave an insider’s look on real issues in Public Relations, and I found it well worth my time.  I loved hearing stories and issues from people who are already in the Public Relations work field.  There is so much to be learned from their experiences, and listening to podcasts is just another way to make that happen.  I would encourage you to check this podcast out for yourself.  You won’t be disappointed!
