Pro-Am Day Held Feb. 26!

Minnesota PRSA Pro-Am Day will be held on Friday, Feb. 26. Pro-Am Day (short for Professional-Amateur Day) is an annual mentoring event matching public relations professionals around the Twin Cities with PRSSA students in an effort to provide a day of job shadowing and networking for participating students to learn more about the public relations industry. The job shadowing portion of the day is from approximately 9 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. 

Please consider participating in this year’s Pro-Am Day event by hosting a student. Hosting a student includes having them in your office for a portion of the day, meeting with colleagues, learning more about your business, shadowing meetings, chatting over lunch about resumes, interviews, etc. We have a full list of ideas for you!
