What is the best way to go about networking and getting experience in the Journalism/Public Relations field?

I graduated with a pre-med degree and am now transitioning into Journalism/PR/Communications field. Do you have any suggestions on how to get more experience and insight in any of those fields?

Have an Answer?

The first thing I would recommend would be creating a LinkedIn profile and set it up to show your current experience and especially your interest in the Journalism/PR/Communications field. You can also join groups in the fields you're interested in. These groups include professionals already in the fields and post suggestions for networking, learning opportunities, and other resources to help you progress your experience and career. Another option would be to look on the website Indeed.com for job opportunities. Employers love experience so any way you can get it (even through volunteering) will be momentum forward for your career. It's also a good way to see what jobs are available and help you find direction in your ultimate career goal by figuring out which job features interest you and which ones don't.
