The paper that Maria mentioned in her most recent post marks a big transition for me. This really is the end of college and the start of a life in the “real” world of public relations. I plan to start working near the end of January, so I have a month and a half to attempt the metamorphosis that occurs when student becomes professional.

I practically live on the Web, so I’m not going anywhere. I just feel that today, writing this paper, I am truly seeing within myself how much my life is about to change. I am experiencing a departure from Amanda playing the role of student to become Amanda, the Future as Chris Brogan so wonderfully calls me.


PR students of the Web, I hope that you feel as empowered as I do when you are on the cusp of graduation. I feel excited and ready to tackle a million and one new things, with a great group of friends who are cheering me on. This is a huge transition in life, and I am proud and happy to share it with all the friends of On the PRowl.

PR pros– please keep giving us your esteemed advice.

PR students– please keep using this blog as a forum to discuss issues and ask questions.

Professor Quigley– please grade us well.

I leave you with a haiku:

“We are On the PRowl/ Real world students with a voice/ Here we shall be heard”

  2. you can also get some career advise from your teacher or even from professionals ;..
