Best Advice You Ever Received

Another post inspired by the student chapter of IABC at Cal State Fullerton …

Tonight was the IABC CSUF kickoff meeting for the semester, and there were about 20 students in attendance. As the professional advisor to the chapter, they asked me to speak about what I do and answer some questions. Here are some of the questions I received:

  1. What’s your typical day like?
  2. What’s the difference between doing PR in house vs. an agency?
  3. What were your first internships like?
  4. How did you find your internships?
  5. Did your Cal State Fullerton education help you once you were out in the real world

I wasn’t asked about the best advice I’d ever received. If I had been asked, I would have said, “fake it til you make it!”

What is the best advice you have received? For work? Personal?
