How can it already be the last week of classes? This semester went by really fast, but I learned a whole lot especially when it comes to public relations.
This week in Public Relations Writing, we were tasked with creating a Photo and Caption: Slideshow Assignment. We had to take no less than nine photographs on an event happening on campus, write captions for each photograph and display it all in a powerpoint.
I honestly did not think that I would ever have to take photographs or write captions for said photographs as a public relations practitioner, but now I see why it is so important to know how to do it. You never know what your client or boss will ask you to do, so why not be able to do it all? Plus, as a public relations practitioner, it will always be important to know how to write pretty much anything that will make your company or client look good. You must know how to use your words in the proper way.
This assignment was a little out of my comfort zone, which is great because that shows me what skills I still need to work on. Mainly, I need to learn how to take better pictures because being a photographer is not one of my talents; although, I sure wish it was. I guess it is time to learn!
