Meredith Foster, a project specialist with Girl Scouts of America, recently visited Dr. Martin’s Principles of Public Relations class. She shared her experiences in public relations and Girl Scouts with the class. Here are a few key takeaways:
- In the non-profit world, you have to learn to wear several hats. You’ll often need to do multiple jobs for the organization.
- Foster has found that tweeting at 8:30am, 12:30pm, and 4:30pm are the most effective times to tweet.
- In her day-to-day work, Foster works with page layouts, websites, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and writing publications and press releases.
