The Panel’s focus will be comprised of students asking questions such as:

2. In what ways do you use social media to promote your clients or your company?

3. What advice do you have for students looking for a career in new media marketing and PR?

The panel will be followed by dinner and networking at the tables.

PR@Cal is the very first and only marketing group on the UC Berkeley campus devoted entirely to the workings of public relations. We strive to act as the premiere resource for connecting Berkeley students with the many PR professionals and organizations in the Bay Area. Many of our club members have found amazing internship and job opportunities through our various networking events, socials, and workshops.We meet biweekly on Tuesdays, and bring in professionals from all backgrounds to discuss their work and provide career advice. In order to address our members' wide range of interests, we try to cover as many industries as we can, including sports publicity, event planning, crisis communications, food PR, and much more.
