Expect a lot of basic, very-basic work, Lots of writing, lots of building lists and lots of planning meetings. This will be your trial by fire so you have to approach it with a smile and the knowledge that if you can do this you can do the hard stuff coming down the line. It doesn't get easier but it does get better.

Hello Edgar and thank you for your question. I was once in your shoes! If your college or university has a co-op component to your Public Relations program, it's a great way to garner some on-the-job experience. An entry-level position is to be expected when we're getting our feet wet for the first time. You can expect a myriad of duties such as research, proofreading PR Media releases and talking points, or crafting one of your own for approval and delivery.
