Top Dog Communication is the perfect applied course for myself. You not only learn different ways of doing tactics, you make friends and you make memories. Top Dog is a taken in the course of Applied Public Relations and I thought that it was going to be an easy going and enjoyable class. It was that and plenty more. Not only did I work hard every week on my tactic, I researched my client’s website and guidelines. This may seem like a lot of work and it is, but working with my group made my first semester in Top Dog a huge success.
You make friends and learn about the type of person you truly are. Are you a procrastinator or are you getting your work done early? I found out in my first college semester that you can not wait to do your work later. Take breaks every once in a while so you do not wear yourself out, but put your head down and keep on going. As I once saw on a t-shirt, “No Pain No Gain.” The college life is not easy and not super difficult, but it is a test to your dedication to your client and time managing while doing a tactic.
Top Dog Communication also brings out the designer in you. Creativity is one area that I have improved a lot over this semester. I started out plain and no fun, but my account executive wanted me to be more creative, so I asked for more creative tactics. Not only do you design, but your writing skills develop more as well. Your research is stated better after doing hours upon hours of media market research of relating these media outlets back to your client. You may want out sometimes, but just keep going. Everyone will help you and you will survive.
Top Dog Communication is the perfect applied course because of the variety of tactics that you do such as designing holiday cards, media market research, and press releases. This course was easily my favorite course this semester due to the friends I have made and the hard work I have put forth for my wonderful client. I want to thank everyone for making me feel welcome and I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given. THANKS.
