Open Mic? Yes Please. TOW 9/10

The social network created by Robert French from Auburn University, PR OpenMic is a website available for PR practitioners, students, and grad students to network with other people interested in Public Relations.

This website has a lot of helpful links and tips to offer. First, you are able to make a profile to tell a little about yourself and your interests within the PR field. Then you can connect with people and discuss you interests or talk about the latest PR news. It is exactly what it says: an open mic. You can blog right on the website which may entice readers to start following your blog. You can read other people’s blogs and there are links available to help you get started on your own blog if you have not done so. There are videos and photos that are updated daily and you can even upload your own videos for others to view. There are forums where you can post a question and have hundreds of people respond and spark up conversation or debate. One of the things that I found most interesting is there is a place where you can search for jobs or internships. This stood out most to me because it is so hard to find a job these days, not to mention a job in the PR field, and there is a section specifically for PR jobs and internships. If that isn’t enough this website also has a place to post your resume’. I think that this is amazing because college Public Relations students and grads should always be open to post their resumes because you never know what opportunities could arise. PR Openmic has all this and more to offer to the PR student, grad, or practitioner. It’s like our own little private social network just for us. I recommend this to all people interested in PR.

I was excited that we were introduced to this site. I know there are many Social Media networks on the Internet that provide people with outlets to express their self and their thoughts but I enjoyed the fact that OpenMic provide a network catered to PR professional and students. I have not been very active since I set one up last month but I hope that when school calms down I will be able to get into it and really use the site to its full potential. I think that every profession should have a site like this where you can connect with people of like minds and goals.
