Socialization and Pre-Career Development of Public Relations Professionals via the Undergraduate Curriculum
Waymer, Damion; Brown, Kenon A.; Baker, Kimberly; Fears, Lillie
Communication Teacher, v32 n2 p117-130 2018
We interviewed racially/ethnically diverse, early career public relations practitioners. By asking participants to reflect on their collegiate social and educational development, we unearth contributing factors to these individuals' success both in college and in their professions to date. Respondents desired much more in-school training and technical skill acquisition than they were provided. Respondents also alluded to ways that the female/male composition of the undergraduate classroom affected their educational environment and student learning experiences. Findings are used to address the extent to which the educational/prepare-students-for-industry dialectic should be addressed by communication faculty and administrators.
