It’s not just another year here at PRofessional Solutions – it’s our 20th anniversary year! So we’re thinking beyond short-term goals for us and about how to improve the careers of others and better support improvement in the profession.
So, here are our three resolutions for 2014:
1 – Support organizations and programs that build our profession.
PRofessional Solutions, LLC is a staffing agency, but the profession we know and serve is public relations. We resolve to continue our professional society sponsorships, find new ways professionals can build their skills and careers, and share the trends and skills needed for the future with our readers.
2 – Encourage more young and mid-career professionals to participate in professional societies.
Networking and the camaraderie that comes from collaborating and building relationships with your professional colleagues are as important to our careers as learning the needed skills. Throughout 2014 we’ll be bringing young professionals to programs as PRofessional Solutions’ guests and sponsoring memberships as our 20th “birthday” gift to the community.
3 – Learn from our clients what they think the profession – and they – need.
We’ve seen and learned a lot from 20 years in business. This year we’ll form a PRofessional Solutions Client Council to learn more about how seasoned communicators see our field evolving, as well as how service providers can help them meet the needs of the future.
