Versatility is Key

Versatility is key. This is a huge part of really any sort of major or job that you get in today’s age. In class we went over a lot of this same material but it was nice to read through it to reiterate the points we have gone over. I really like how in class today we spoke about how in advertising you have to be personal to get products to sell. Like the video from “Mad Men” really showed how to sell products with emotion. “Today, ideas and content must flow furiously at a pulse rate that the digital landscape demands. But that quickening doesn’t obviate some basic truths. We must never lose sight of the importance that quality storytelling and a journalistic mindset have in an ecosystem where there is simply too much content and not enough time.” This was my favorite part of the presentation that we had to read on blueline. I understand it is a bit long but I think it makes total sense and does a terrific job of painting a picture for us on how to sell. Now, what I have spoke about before in this post directly correlates with public relations today. Like we have discussed in class, public relations is basically being able to do a whole bunch of different skills. In today’s age, we are moving towards more of a combination of these different skills and calling them Journalism or Public Relations for example. Being in these types of positions you need to be able to be comfortable with doing everything and anything that a future employer may throw at you. Because at the end of the day, regardless of the circumstances, you have to deliver.IMG_2032
