Connecting New PR Professionals and Students: The Sevans Network

Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn are a few of the major social networking sites that we, as public relations students need to be involved.  On October 4, 2010, saw the launch of a brand new site that should be added to that list: The Sevans Network.

Sarah Evans, the owner of Sevans Strategy, a PR and new media consulting agency came up with the Sevans Network after asking her followers how she could give them better resources.

Offering everything from career advice to internship opportunities and support from other members, the network aims to help public relations students evolve into well informed professionals.

The website offers groups that include everything from a discussion forum to a comment wall with topics ranging from nonprofit PR,  resume, and interview help.

A main forum, blog posts section, chat room, tools and resources, upcoming events, PR hash tags and member of the week are just a few of the other sections on the Sevans Network.

The unique part of the website is the “what projects are you working on?” section, which allows members to share projects and ask for help or advice.

Members have pages that include a comment wall, profile picture, basic information, friends, and a status that are linked to the member’s twitter and/or Facebook. Members page are personalized with different themes and privacy settings.

Becoming a member of the network is easy! Just visit this website, enter your information, and confirm the request.

As PR students, we are always told to network and blog. The Sevans Network offers both of those things, plus more, on one webpage!
