James Sanford - VP of Public Relations
Year in school: Senior
Favorite class: Campaigns
Dream job: Dream job would be a film director but in the world of PR would be working for Adobe.
How I got involved in PRSSA: I was first introduced to the world of PR where he heard about a group of people who love to network and tell a brand’s story. After going to a PRSSA event, he joined without question. James served for over a year on the editorial and PR committees.
Advice to current/future members: Be involved! Many of the PR professionals that I met on company tours have told us they look for students who are involved in programs outside of the classroom. PRSSA is a great way to get real-life experience, meet professionals in all PR fields, and create connections that you will use through your entire life.
