Public Relations students in Webster’s School of Communications received a window into the professional world as they toured three local organizations on Nov. 7, gathering tips and tricks of the PR trade.

The event, sponsored by the Career Planning & Development Center and School of Communications, featured visits to FOCUS St. Louis, Osborn Barr, and Nestle Purina. Company representatives, including Webster alumni, were on hand to provide insight and advice about careers in public relations.

Students who attend the tour will be sharing their experiences in classes and in upcoming chapter meetings for the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).
