To be honest with you, I am kind of nervous to enter the world of a PR professional because in all of my classes, I continue hearing about the ways that we drive journalists crazy and how it is hard for the two careers to get along even though it is essential that they work together. I think it is important for all PR professionals to remember what to avoid when giving a journalists a piece of a written story, so then you are able to keep that credibility with them and potential other journalists. I think that the most important fact to remember is to ADMIT THE TRUTH, if you are honest with people then they should understand that you as a person cannot know every detail involved with certain stories. And remember to always meet the deadlines with journalist because you will just appear lazy and come off with the an attitude of not caring.
