About the Blog

Rebecca and Shantae are polar opposites.

Please note: Rebecca taught Shantae the "hand on hip" trick. Works every time.

Shantae is a city girl; Rebecca grew up on a 50-acre plot in the middle of nowhere.

Shantae is allergic to tomatoes and cooks fabulous chicken dinners on a whim; Rebecca has a terrible habit of eating chips and salsa as a meal.

Shantae is known for her sassy persona; Rebecca is known for her sweet, classy demeanor.

Although they’re different, these Kent State University public relations majors (and roommates) have two things in common: They enjoy warming up the coffee pot at 11 p.m., and they’re both confident, aspiring public relations professionals searching for employment after graduation in May 2010.

From creating a strategic job-search plan to applying, interviewing and making career-altering decisions, this blog will follow Shantae and Rebecca’s journey as the future professionals search for public relations careers amidst a recession. 

Please note: The opinions and views discussed in this blog are Shantae and Rebecca’s.  In no way do they reflect the opinions of their employers, university, friends or family, unless stated otherwise.

    I’m currently looking for a social media graduate in the UK

    Do you know anyone?

      Thank you for stopping by the blog! We appreciate your kind words; we love seeing how digital media can be used effectively in marketing/public relations.

      At this time, I don’t know any social media graduates in the UK. Are you on LinkedIn? You may be able to find graduates through a simple search. Let me know if you need help.
