Although many people across the country join the Public Relations Student Society of America, many of them do not take the time to do their research about what their membership provides to them beyond a respected activity to put on their resume. Yes, PRSSA is a great way to grab a prospective employer’s attention. However, being a member of PRSSA provides many more “perks” and opportunities than just a title.
To fully understand what being a member of PRSSA means, one should take a half an hour and explore the PRSSA national website at http://www.prssa.org. The website is easy to remember and fairly easy to navigate. It provides information on all the different chapters of PRSSA across the country, as well as scholarship opportunities open to whoever wishes to apply to them. The website is an amazing tool and one that should be visited, at least once, by every member of PRSSA.
