Holly Baird of Sitrick & Co. Sponsors CSUF PRSSA Student  Membership

 

Fullerton, CA, January 31, 2018 – California State University, Fullerton’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) hosted “Launch Your Career: PRSSA 101” on January 31, 2018 to kick-start its spring semester. For the first time ever, a student’s membership dues will be sponsored by a CSUF Alumni through a social media contest.

 

“I’m honored to be able to provide this experience to the Public Relations students of CSUF,” said Member of the Firm, Holly Baird.  “When I met with the CSUF PRSSA group this past winter, not only was I impressed with the questions and engagement of the panel, I was even prouder to be a part of the Titan alumni family.”

 

Holly Baird joined Sitrick & Company in November 2005. Over the past 13 years, she has worked her way up the ladder earning a position as Member of the Firm.  Baird hosted CSUF PRSSA’s extremely exclusive and raved about the event, Fight or Flight: Crisis Communications event last November.

 

The sponsorship was announced during CSUF PRSSA’s kickoff event and is open to all students regardless of major.  The contest requires students to participate on Twitter by answering three questions from the CSUF PRSSA twitter page using the hashtag #csufprssaXholly between Feb. 5 and Feb. 7.  Applicants will need to submit a copy of their resume and a short answer of no more than 600 words on why they are the most deserving candidate and what their career aspirations are after graduation.

 

“My collegiate experience at CSUF provided me the background and foundation I needed to thrive in my career and I believe it’s an invaluable experience for the CSUF students to be able to participate in the public relations programs available to them,” said Baird. “I vow to do everything I can to ensure that any of the students in the PRSSA at CSUF are able to access the resources I have in my network.”

 

The deadline to apply is Friday, Feb. 9.  Applications are to be submitted by email to csufprssa@gmail.com with the subject line “csufprssaXholly” by midnight.
