We totally get it. Nothing compares to the incredible high of knowing you used your brains, creativity and contacts to help a brand you love shine in the spotlight. PR can be an incredibly satisfying career – once you actually break into the industry with your first job or internship, of course.
Even if you have a degree in PR – you still don’t have the real-world perspective and experience top agencies and brands are looking for from entry-level candidates. Spoiler: you probably aren’t going to be writing a ton of press releases.
So, let’s fill in a few of those knowledge gaps necessary to become a truly competitive candidate
(so you can get to the all the fun stuff).

I’ve worked in-house, freelance, and agency-side for fashion, accessories, lifestyle and consumer brands; I went from being an assistant account coordinator (one teeny step above an intern) to creating and leading an award-winning social media department before making PR Couture, a small consulting practice and university teaching (yup I’m a professor too) my full-time business.
I have a pretty good track record of turning job interviews into job offers (I’ve gotten almost every PR job I applied for) and a great instinct when it comes to hiring top talent that are a fit for me and my business (my last assistant stayed with me for five years).
I started PR Couture because I wanted to share what I was learning about fashion PR. And because frankly, I wasn’t getting that warm fuzzy feeling when I tried to connect with publicists for career insight or support. It’s become my mission to ensure that PR Couture readers never feel lost or without expert-level advice.
This mini-course is just one of the ways I’m stepping up to provide you with the information and access you need to succeed in your career.
