Student Connections Week

Each year, PRSA Richmond matches motivated students with mentors from the professional community for informal meet-ups, resume and job-seeking advice, in-depth career discussions and more. Activities may range from just chatting over coffee or shadowing a professional for a day to attending client pitches, news conferences or special events. Some of these matches have resulted in long-term professional relationships, internships and even jobs.

2018 Mentors

Please take a little time out of your busy schedule to provide mentoring to a college student as part of the chapter’s annual Student Connections Week, to be held in October 2018.

We’re going to open the October 31 PRSA luncheon doors a little early and pair PR professionals with PR students for some one-on-one networking. You will be matched with a student whose interests align with your area of practice. You’ll meet in October before our luncheon, then can arrange for future meetings outside of PRSA if you so desire.

RSVP to be a mentor here. The deadline to sign-up is Oct. 24.
