Candidates Applying for the Public Relations & Corp. Comm. Course Kindly read the Note below:

Candidates who shall be seeking admission for Public Relations & Corporate Communications will have to come for their GD & PI with the preparatory assignment already complete.

Last year the candidates were asked to meet and speak to a senior professional working in a Public Relations agency and prepare a 2 or 3 page typed write-up on the following:

  • What is the practice of Public Relations all about?
  • What is the practice of Corporate Communications all about?
  • What are the typical activities that a Trainee does in the 1st year of work in a Public Relations firm?
  • What skills are required to be a successful P.R. Executive in a Public Relations company and career?

Also in the write-up, the aspiring candidate would have to quote who they interacted with, in the agency to seek such information. (Mention Name, Cell number, E-mail ID and attach a visiting card of the person the candidate met)

Important:

  • It is mandatory to meet a Manager in a P.R. agency. A Corporate Communication Executive/ Manager is not acceptable for the interaction.
  • This has to be done in person only and not via the telephone / video conference.
  • Candidates should carry their assignment to the Group Discussion / Interview without which they will not qualify for the Group Discussion / Interview.
