After PRISM I took a job as the e-commerce assistant for a fashion and lifestyle brand. I’m not kidding when I say it’s a dream job – I still feel like, ‘I can’t believe this is my job’.

I have accepted a new position as a social media/PR manager at a women’s clothing store. It is my first step back into the fashion industry since I graduated college, and I could not be happier!
I recently started working for the menswear company, Trunk Club!
I officially made the move to LA about a month ago now, started a job that I absolutely love at a hospitality PR firm. Couldn’t have done it without Crosby and PRISM!

I’ve been offered PR internships at Mercedes Benz Corporate and a hospitality firm that works with Kendra Scott. Now I have to choose! – Stephanie Maxon
I’m graduating with degrees in Business administration & strategic communication. I wouldn’t have found my passion for the industry without PRISM. – Christina von Claparède-Crola
I landed an internship with The Blogger Babes, a network for fashion and lifestyle bloggers. – Danielle Moore
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.
Two years into my career, I had earned a Master’s Degree in Communication and was technically working in my dream field (connecting with fashion editors daily and a huge jewelry closet to play in), but I still had a ton of questions. Like, how do you build relationships with editors, deal with stressful, high-pressure work environments, and get clients (or your boss) to trust you enough to approve creative, impactful campaign ideas?
With PR Couture as a platform, I started interviewing and building relationships with people who answered my questions and offered me support; I worked in-house, freelance, and agency-side; I went from being an assistant account coordinator (one tiny step above an intern) to creating an award-winning social media department before making PR Couture and a small consulting practice my full-time, six-figure business.
I’m not a big fan of the “if you have to cry, go outside” mentality. In fact, I don’t want you to feel like crying at all. It’s become my mission to ensure that all my rising stars never feel lost or without expert-level advice.

Fair warning, if you’re hoping to go into tech, healthcare, sports, automotive or financial PR – this might not be the best fit.
We are happy to work with agencies who want to offer PRISM to their entry-level employees as part of professional development or career training. For more information please email email@example.com
Just like in PR – there are no guarantees. However, course graduates are now working at top agencies, brands and magazines. Many say the course was more valuable than 4-years of college, and report feeling way more confident and excited about what’s ahead. But like anything, you get what you put into it.
PRISM helps you to clarify your personal brand, strengths and positioning, which are all important parts of branding yourself as a freelance publicist. PRISM will also provide you with templates and examples of the types of things you’ll be creating for clients (pitches, bios, etc) and give you a strategy to build your network. However, PRISM does not focus on building a profitable PR business, ideal client development or small business promotion/fundamentals.
Absolutely not. The course was designed for those just getting started in the real world of PR, which is most often college seniors and recent graduates. However, if you’re looking for career guidance and support, and the course sounds like a fun and worthwhile pursuit – we are happy to welcome in Prismadonnas of all ages.
Yes! You determine the pace of the course. And, course materials are yours to keep no matter what – so you can always jump back into a module if it comes at a busy time – or revisit certain assignments at a later date.
Absolutely! We’ve had people from Australia, India, South Africa, England and France take the course and love it!
