Career of the Week-- Public Relations Specialist

| No Comments

Public Relations Pic3.png

Public relations specialists serve as a bridge between clients and the public to help build and maintain positive relationships. Clients may include, but are not limited to, businesses, nonprofit associations, universities and hospitals. Organizational functions a public relations specialist may handle are media, community, consumer, industry, and governmental relations; political campaigns; interest-group representation; conflict mediation and much more. It is important for public relations specialists to be knowledgeable of the attitudes and concerns of community, consumer, employee and public interest groups and have the ability to establish and maintain relationships between them and representatives from print and broadcast journalism.

Public relations specialists complete a variety of tasks including drafting press releases and contacting members of the media who may print or broadcast their material. Many reports, stories and articles viewed in the media begin at the desk of public relations specialists. Another job duty could be to arrange and conduct programming to maintain contact between organizational representatives and the public, for example making a slide show for a speaking engagement for officials. Public relations specialists in governmental positions may be called press secretaries. Their job is to keep the public informed about the activities of agents and officials. In large organizations, public relations specialists write, research, prepare materials, maintain contacts, and respond to inquiries.

For this field of work, common degrees are public relations, journalism, or communications. Business and Marketing Education is also a great degree for this career. To find out more information about this major, click here. Employers seek applicants with demonstrated communication skills and training experience in a field related to the firm's business. Internships in public relations help students gain valuable experience and the best route to finding entry level employment.

Important Points:• Employment is expected to grow faster than average
• Opportunities are best for college graduates who combine their degree with a public relations internship or other related work experience. GoldPASS, Career Fairs and Networking are great ways to find internships in this area. Click here

Kate Meier, Art Education MEd/ILP, shares her success

| 1 Comment


kmeier_headshot.jpg

Name: Kate Meier
Licensure program: Art Education; Completed June 2011
Position: Art Teacher
Employer: Los Lunas High School, Los Lunas, NM

Job Search

How did you learn about your current position?
I learned about my job through an exhaustive internet search of school district web sites.

Describe the application and interview process.
I wrote dozens of cover letters, resumes, and applied online. I had to be persistent. I made follow up phone calls after I sent electronic copies of my resume and cover letters to principals. The key is to get noticed. When you send your information to Human Resources, you get lost in the mix. A follow up phone call is a way for the principal or assistant principal to start to get to know you better. I had a lot of success with this, and had a series of phone interviews because I was living in Wisconsin at the time. I decided, however, that for the jobs I really wanted I would have to be there in person to have a chance. I flew to Albuquerque, NM and had two live interviews, one of which was in Los Lunas. Considering how short my job search was (about 2 months while I was finishing school; very early in the hiring season), I was very fortunate to have had so many interviews.

How did you make yourself stand out during the job search?
In the Southwest, many teacher candidates do not have an M. Ed and a B.A. in their field. I think I stood out because of my educational background, as well as my online portfolio, where I posted photos of myself in the classroom, my students' work, and kept a sort of virtual resume.

What advice would you like to share with others about your experience finding a teaching position?
I would recommend looking at a move if jobs in the area you are searching aren't plentiful. It can be short-term, just enough to get you the experience. I would also recommend applying for at least one job a day, and keeping track of each job you apply for in a spreadsheet, so that you can follow up with a phone call within 5-7 business days. If you call and get an answering machine, call back again. Talk to someone live. Be persistent, and be careful. Making a simple grammatical or spelling error on a resume or cover letter can take you out of the picture before administration even considers your experience. Rather than coming in for an interview with a bulky portfolio, bring your laptop with your online portfolio ready to go. I also found that the Job Search Handbook we received at the Professional Practice Seminar was imperative to my preparing for interviews. I looked at all of the sample questions and prepared written and oral answers for each of them.

Teaching Position

Describe your current position.
I am the sole art teacher at a high school with a population of 1,400 kids in a town of 24,000. There are two high schools in our district. I teach students in grades 9-12. I have one advanced class and four beginning art classes. In my beginning art classes most of the students are in 9th and 10th grade. My curriculum is based on three major art practices, drawing, painting, and sculpture, as well as an emphasis on art history, aesthetics, and art criticism. My students are of predominantly Hispanic and Native American descent.

What do you most enjoy about your position?
I enjoy the individual relationships I build with students as I watch their artistic talents mature.

What are some of its challenges?
Classroom management can be a challenge in classrooms with 35+ students who are mostly freshman and sophomores. It is important to establish yourself as a teacher who is firm but fair. I also recommend making a seating chart after you get to know the students to avoid major classroom disruptions.

Please share your advice to students entering the teaching profession.
After a year and a half of training and experience, I am still new to the teaching profession. I am always learning more about how I can become a better, more effective teacher. It is important to think of yourself first as a student and second as a teacher. Success came to me through hard work, persistence, and being in the right place at the right time. It is important to be open to those opportunities if they present themselves.

Englerj-2011.jpg

At the University of Minnesota and in CEHD we feel every student has what they need to be successful. We believe in taking a strengths based approach and work with students to learn to use their talents so they can be developed into strengths.


Jennifer Engler, Assistant Dean of Student Services, talks about her strengths.


What are your top 5 talent themes?
Connectedness, Activator, Input, Relator, Communication


In what ways do you use your talents each day?
My Connectedness theme tends to be the driving force behind most of my days, efforts and source of energy. In almost every meeting, conversation, article or book I am reading, I routinely identify the links between ideas, events, or people. Fortifying the bonds between the people and projects that help improve the student experience gives me a sense of accomplishment, satisfaction and overall energy.

My other talent themes tend to serve in support of the automatic connections I see. My Input theme is often constantly running in the background doing what I like to refer to as "data download" seeking more and more information, facts, and patterns to help feed the connections the other part of my brain is trying to make.

My Relator theme thrives on knowing people on a deeper level and getting to know what is most important to them, what talent themes they rely on to make their life most fulfilling, and what drives them to do their best every day.

Of course, one of the best ways these connections can be made, enriched and maintained with others is through my Communication theme (lots and lots of it!). I find email almost addictive and I have piles and piles of articles, blogs, and books that I have yet to read, digest and share.

Finally, all of this happens for me very quickly - my Activator theme - I try to download the information quickly, my brain is making connections before all the information is in, and I am moving forward to communicate, connect with others, and move an effort, task, or project forward even before I am aware of the total plan or even outcome.


How have you sought to develop your talent themes?
I can move too quickly and I also often get caught up in all the connections I like to make between ideas, people and projects so I often try to partner with someone with Focus or Discipline themes. Colleagues with these talent themes help me stay on track and give attention to the details that can get lost for me in my haste or in the many connections that I pursue.

I have also realized that my Relator and Connectedness themes make it essential that I make time for family and close friends. I need the deep connection and quality moments in order to feed my soul and keep me energized and motivated to make a difference at home and in my work.


What surprises you about your talent themes?

At first, I didn't like my Connectedness theme and I wasn't sure how it helped me in my life, either at work or in my personal life. I resonated with the idea that I am a spiritual person and that I believe we are all connected and thus impact one another in with our thoughts and actions. However, it took me a while to see how the connections I was making in my head between people, ideas, projects and events was helpful in my leadership and coaching roles. I took for granted that everyone made the same connections and could see how they could be put to use to further projects and achieve goals that could ultimately help students.


Which talent themes fit you best and why?
Perhaps not surprising, I see the connections between how my talent themes work together and I like to see how each of them works in combination with the other.


How have your talent themes helped you as a leader to resolve conflict and find creative solutions ?
I am very energized by the ability to transform innovative ideas into immediate action. I like to work with creative and original thinkers, and then do whatever I can to support them to move their ideas from conceptual framework to effective and concrete practice. I enjoy spurring others into action, especially around areas that have been log jammed for a while. Removing the barriers and getting things done is a great delight to me!

Currently, I am working in student services to help everyone see how their programs and efforts fit in the larger picture. I am striving to build solid teams where people feel they are important to the organization and that the work that they do ultimately benefits students. I like the idea of using my Connectedness talents to break down silos, share knowledge and ultimately help people see the connections among their talents, their actions, their mission, and their successes. The ultimate goals is to help people believe in what they are doing and feel like they are part of something bigger that is making a true difference in the lives of others.

Minnesota Master Naturalist Program Coordinator

| No Comments

Title: Minnesota Master Naturalist Program Coordinator
Capacity/Program Area: Extension Center for Food Agricultural and
Natural Resources Sciences- Environmental Science Education
Application Deadline: Initial review of applications will begin
September 19, 2011. Applications accepted until position is filled.
Location: Saint Paul, MN


ABOUT EXTENSION
University of Minnesota Extension is a major outreach arm of the
University of Minnesota, a land grant institution with a mission to
serve the public through applied research and education. The mission
of the University of Minnesota Extension Service is: "Making a
difference by connecting community needs and University resources to
address critical issues in Minnesota." To learn more about Extension,
go to: TUhttp://www.extension.umn.eduUT

ABOUT THIS POSITION
Master Naturalist Explorers will address the problem that children are
spending increasingly less time outside and, consequently, know less
about their environment and world. It responds to the needs
identified in Minnesota's 2009 Outdoor Education Legislative Report to
increase outdoor learning opportunities for children and to train
educators who are often uncomfortable taking youth outside for
lessons. It also addresses outcomes outlined in the Minnesota
Greenprint to provide increased environmental education opportunities
for youth both at school and during play.

The goals of the project are 1) to create a series of outdoor,
sequential, earth and life science-based lessons with targeted
learning outcomes that address the new MN K-12 Science Standards, 2)
to prepare adult volunteers to deliver these lessons in after-school
programs for 4th and 5th graders with the aim of improving their
performance on the 5th grade Science MCA exams and 3) to establish a
permanent program to offer these lessons throughout Minnesota. The
weekly lessons will focus on the physical changes in the seasons and
their effects on plant and animal life i.e. phenology. These lessons
will be divided into three units linked to The Minnesota Weatherguide,
a natural history calendar.

Other state and national programs focus on outdoor exploration, play,
and reflection with an emphasis on natural areas. This program will
emphasize targeted science learning outcomes and use of the schoolyard
as a means of investigating the environment. The curriculum will be
developed and tested in schools with large minority enrollments. MN
Master Naturalist staff will then train, place, and support volunteers
offering the program in at least 50 sites statewide.

The Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund is
financing this project and position for three years. For a copy of
the proposal to the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota
Resources (LCCMR) that resulted in the grant, please contact
info@minnesotamasternaturalist.org. This proposal uses an earlier name
for the program, Junior Master Naturalist, which has been replaced
with Master Naturalist Explorers.

This position is accountable to the University of Minnesota Extension
Program Leader for Environmental Science Education in the Extension
Center for Food Agricultural, and Natural Resources Sciences.

The person chosen for this position will join a statewide team of
regional and campus-based individuals focused on the Minnesota Master
Naturalist Program, which is a joint endeavor of the University of
Minnesota Extension and the State of Minnesota Department of Natural
Resources.

This position will be dedicated to developing a new program under the
Minnesota Master Naturalist umbrella: Master Naturalist Explorers.
This new program will pair current adult Minnesota Master Naturalist
Volunteers with staff in existing after-school programs to offer fun,
outdoor, science-based educational opportunities for 4th and 5th
graders to learn about the ecology and natural history of their
schoolyard, neighborhood, nearby natural areas, and the entire state.

Minnesota Master Naturalist is a volunteer program that teaches adults
about Minnesota's natural resources, empowers them to educate others,
and provides them opportunities to do conservation projects. The
mission of the Minnesota Master Naturalist Program is to promote
awareness, understanding, and stewardship of Minnesota's natural
environment by developing a corps of well-informed citizens dedicated
to conservation education and service within their communities.

The position will be housed with the Environmental Science Education
(ESE) team in Extension. The goal of the ESE team is to improve
environmental literacy among Minnesota citizens through design and
delivery of high quality environmental science education. The focus of
ESE programming is research-based instructor training that emphasizes
effective teaching methods, informative curricula and citizen science.
Priority audiences include organizations and individuals providing
non-formal education on the environment.

LOCATION OF POSITION
The position will be located on the Saint Paul campus of the
University of Minnesota.

RESPONSIBILITIES AND PERFORMANCE EXPECTATIONS
o Follow an established work-plan to develop, implement, and evaluate
a research-based after-school program for 4th and 5th graders that
pairs Master Naturalist volunteers with staff in existing after-school
programs across Minnesota.
o Recruit, train, and support Master Naturalist volunteers to deliver
the after-school program.
o Develop and maintain collaborations and partnerships with
after-school programs offered by schools, parks, libraries, and other
venues throughout the state.
