Meredith mentioned that she does the photography for all the important council meetings and that made it clear to me that photography is still a necessary skill in a journalism career. She also said that she writes a lot. The importance of writing has been mentioned by all of the speakers who have visited our class and it is becoming clear that it is a necessary skill for every day jobs in communications.
She also talked about how much she is involved in social media. Social media is clearly a vital part of any PR job and she gave us some blogs to look up for advice on using social media. She also talked about tweeting at certain times during the day so that she reaches more of her target audience. I never realized that tweeting at certain times would be an important part of social media.
