PR books on Pinterest

I finally found a good use for Pinterest! Here’s my selection of PR books to add to your library:

Some interesting reads there, including a novel and a biography.

If you want to check out my other boards they’re mostly decorating/interiors/recipes – I was going through a “home” stage when I set up Pinterest.

How to get a job in PR – 10 preview copies

HowToGetAJobInPR_eBook

I’m very excited to be launching ‘How to get a job in PR’ early next month.

The book will officially launched at a party in London on 3rd December and will be available internationally on Amazon in paperback and on both Amazon and Apple in e-book format.

I’d like to invite ten people to receive an early e-book copy. You’ll also get an invitation to the UK launch party at a swanky Shoreditch art gallery and the opportunity to ask me anything you like about the book and careers in PR. In return, I’d like you to review the book on Amazon (and/or your blog) and share the review using social media.  You could be a journalist, blogger, academic or PR practitioner. Graduates or students who are active bloggers are also welcome to apply.  In the event that more than ten people apply for review copies, I’ll ask my current PR trainees to select names from the list.

To apply for a preview copy please drop me an email at stimsonsarah@gmail.com

If you don’t want to be an early reviewer, but would like an email notification when the book is out then sign up here.

Video CVs – are they the future?

In an era of high-levels of youth unemployment, sensible graduates are trying to find ways to stand out from the crowd. Are video CVs the way forward?It may be much easier to be persuasive if you can talk to an employer rather than just send a cover letter, so it might be a great way to get noticed. A couple of years ago I featured this CVIV from Graeme Anthony (he then went on to secure himself a job at a PR agency so it did the trick)
