Young PR Pros

This episode sponsored by the University of Ottawa Public Relations Association (uOPRA) features Ian Capstick of MediaStyle alongside uOPRA President Sharon Cheung and Young PR Pros host Kristine Simpson.

Releasing our third episode of our 4-episode podcast, Take uOPRA to Work Day, we were thrilled to sit down and chat with Ian, who has published works in the Ottawa Citizen, the Globe and Mail and PostMedia newspapers across Canada, to name a few, and is a regular on CBC’s Power and Politics.

Sharon asks Ian what MediaStyle looks for when recruiting new team members. Ian mentions government relations and we discuss unpaid internships.

A unique feature of MediaStyle is that they offer workshops for clients and students to learn about various topics such as video production and social media. Join in on the episode to learn more and make sure to listen in to our last edition to the podcast series.
