Young PR Pros joins the FIR Podcast Network
We’re proud to announce that Young PR Pros is the latest podcast to join the FIR Podcast Network. Introduced in 2012 by Kristine D’Arbelles and Julia Kent, Young PR Pros covers a range of topics of interest to those at the early stages of their careers in PR and communications, from job hunting skills (like building resumes and interview tips) to the state of PR and communications and how young PR professionals can shape the industry’s future.
As the show’s popularity has grown, D’Arbelles and Kent have been invited to universities and communication events across Ottawa to speak about building a career in PR. Listeners tune into the podcast from across Canada and around the world, including the U.S., Australia, and India.
Listen here as Kristine and Julia tell you a little about what to expect from Young PR Pros:
We’re thrilled to introduce Kristine and Julia to the FIR community!
