Chapter One Notes (overdue…oops!)

Notes and Thoughts from Text:

  • In chapter one, I thought it was interesting that there was a section about how they screen applicants by administering a current events quiz. I remember having a question on it on the RATS quiz. I think this a great way to determine who is up to date with the most important and well-known news stories.
  • On pages 20-21, there is a list of websites to use as resources for researching materials. These range from news websites to databases.  It includes sources such as the Britannica Encyclopedia and Ulrich’s Periodical Databases. You definitely want to dog-ear these pages!!
  • Page 24 includes even more websites especially for anything related to PR!
  • Page 26 has an interesting take on how to switch your spiffy language with more common terms to appeal to common folk, as well as higher professionals.
  • (Gobbledygook is one of my top ten favorite words)
