Young PR Pros

This week, Kristine Simpson and Julia Kent talk networking. Networking is pretty important for young PR pros. Here are just a few reasons why:

"It is not what you know it is who you know" - my mentor, Stephen Heckbert

"@Kristinesimpson Not just young ones but all of us IMO - networking is vital to stay on top of trends and trade best practices." - @SergeQuinty

"@Kristinesimpson I am not a PR pro (or all that young) but wouldn't networking be essential to your success in that field?" - @CanadianDadBlog

And yes, @CanadianDadBlog, networking is essential to a PR pros career.

However, networking is not always the easiest task to undertake. It can be very intimidating as a young professional. So, Kristine and Julia, share their tips and advice on how they work a room while networking and build their contacts.

We would love to hear from you. What is your number tip to network successfully? Do you have an idea for a show?
