ATLANTA—Trevelino/Keller Communications Group has launched PR StarBase, a face-to-face, social media initiative to support career placement in the public relations industry. In response to the continued influx of talent into the industry, Trevelino/Keller will begin its PR StarBase initiative with the launch of its social media network, PRStarBase on Ning.com as well as its PR StarBase Interview Camp Series, which the firm will host bi-monthly.
“Our weekly resume counts are very high, across a broad range of experience levels, industry backgrounds and specialty areas of expertise,” says Dean Trevelino, principal with Trevelino/Keller. “Now is the time for us to step up our efforts to be supportive, collegial and consultative with professionals either entering the industry from college or working to extend their career in public relations.”
PR StarBase Interview Camps are full-day efforts dedicated to meeting with job candidates. Each candidate will have 45 minutes with the firm: five minutes on agency overview and hiring practices, 20 minutes for candidate credentials, 10 minutes for agency feedback and 10 minutes for Q&A. Within 24 hours of the camp, candidates will receive an online invitation to sign up at Trevelino/Keller’s Ning site, where they can post their resumes.
