This past Saturday was my baby sis’ senior prom and she looked absolutely stunning in her blue dress, curls and beautiful smile that melted my heart!! We talked for hours afterwards about how it went, who wore what and every single endearing memory that she is going to carry for years to come.
In every PR girl’s path there will be achievements and memorable events that will create a scrapbook of their own PRom moments full of deep and special meaning that is unexplainable. Something that lasts with you throughout your career. A small feeling that makes you smile on your worst days and that reminds you that this is for you even when everything is going wrong. It can be anything from successfully managing 5 am monitoring without oversleeping ever or being recognized as a media bulldog. Experiences that will last a lifetime no matter what corner you turn as some of my fave PR girls can testify…
“A very special moment in my PR career happened last month. My client, who puts on large scale food and wine events every year, was featured in the Sunday San Francisco Chronicle Style Section – one full page with their recommendations on where to eat, drink, and shop in the city. After months of pitching, planning, and scheduling this placement, the timing was perfect; the newspaper was distributed across every room in three separate hotels in Pebble Beach on the last day of the event – over 900 papers!” – Beauty and the Pitch’s gorg West Coast PR Girl
“The first time I got to attend fashion week for a lifestyle client. Such a memorable and magical experience I will never forget!” – The lovely NYC PR Girls who are such an inspiration to every PR girl no matter where
“I think my favorite/special/most memorable PR moment was the first time I wrote a release and then earned my first placement in the New York Times. I was new to the account and it was my first time flying solo on a PR campaign, so when one of the biggest publications in the nation took notice of our clients work that was a pretty awesome moment.” – The oh-so-sweet PR Blonde who just moved on up to NY and had coffee with me today!
“I work in healthcare PR, and though it isn’t as glamorous as something like fashion PR, it is quite rewarding. One of our client’s was having an event to raise awareness on an important disease, and I got to oversee it from start to finish. Being there the day of the event and having an amazing turnout made me so thankful for a job where I can better the world.” – A darlin’ Healthcare PR Girl
“My top PR moment was receiving my agency’s Leadership Award, with the founder himself present at the ceremony. He is now in his 90s, and such an inspiration. He still comes into the office every day!” – Crisis and issues PR girl
What’s your PRom moment,
