Career Advice

21 Feb

This blog gives information about advice you would give to your younger PR self. Useful advice to those of us about to enter the ‘real world’.


As professionals, we all have something we wish we could go back and tell our younger selves. Maybe it would be not to take a certain job, or that you shouldn’t feel bad about working into the wee hours of the morning in hopes of a promotion.

Followers of Ragan’s Facebook page recently shared the advice they would give themselves if they could go back in time. Here’s what a few of them had to say:

1. “Feedback is a gift, even when it arrives in an ugly package.” — Monica Czernek Wiant

2. “Take risks that matter. Trust yourself and listen more than you speak.” — Marissa Garcia

3. “You have to be an advocate for yourself in order to advance professionally. No one else is going to pull you or push you up the corporate ladder.” — Lisa Subers Huffman

4. “Believe in yourself, but most important, make sure you can believe in the work that you do and the clients you serve.” — Joy Abella

5. “Seek experience, even unpaid, which searching for your ideal entry level position.” — Rebecca Hunsel

6. “Show up early. Stay even 10 minutes late. Anticipate your manager’s needs. Make friends with the front desk.” — Katherine Dibling

7. “Be a forest ranger.” — Troy Griggsby
