Highlight your communication degree and PR minor by showcasing your strong writing, verbal, and interpersonal skills. Emphasize your understanding of public relations strategies, media relations, and effective communication tactics. Leverage internships, relevant projects, and networking to gain practical experience and build a strong portfolio. Immerse yourself in continuous learning, stay adaptable, and gain practical experience through internships or personal projects.
