Everyone remembers his or her first internship – the first real foot in the door for landing a career. With college graduations right around the corner, summer internships will be starting up all over the U.S. in the next few weeks. That’s why us HAPPO Champs (you know, “Help a PR Pro Out,”) have decided the timing is just right to do our next live Twitter chat to get you ready for your summer internship.
In this chat, we’ll be talking to students and professionals alike to discuss tips for upcoming interns not only to succeed, but also to rock their upcoming summer internship. If students don’t have an internship lined up yet, no sweat! We’ll also be discussing last-minute internship opportunities to snatch up, plus tips on alternative ways to gain experience this summer. We’d love input from all ages and skill levels from both a student AND a professional perspective.
Who: PR and communication pros, students and recent grads
What: HAPPO Chat: Tips to Rock Your Summer Internship
Where: Anywhere you have access to Twitter! At your desk or on your phone
When: Thursday, April 26 from 2-3 p.m. ET
Why: We all want our up and coming pros to succeed — and the first step is that summer internship!
How: Follow me on Twitter (@dferrari), as I’ll be moderating this chat. I’ll be putting out a series of six questions (starting with Q1, Q2, etc.). Also — follow the hashtag #HAPPO and tag each tweet with this hashtag so you can easily follow along and folks can follow you. Stick to answering the questions, but also feel free to build off of them with conversation of your own with other folks tweeting. Just stay on topic!
Questions? Email me: email@example.com.
See you next Thursday!
