YABATECH: PRO’S DIARY SEASON 3; Yabatech acquires state of the art security software


    The external PR is about holding several conferences, send out press releases, manages events and keep itself much in the public glare for better promotion and more recognition. Institutes these days maintain special ALUMNI Relations Cell through which they keep in constant contact with their students who have passed out and are doing well in the industry. They do it for the purpose of a better brand name and to ensure decent placements to the upcoming batches through their contacts. And with, internet taking the centre stage for all communication, the role ofPR here becomes precise yet demanding. Use of social media sites, blog, pod-cast etc is the tools available on the PR professional at the fingertip giving them a wide scope of reaching out. Just like any other organisation, the educational institutes also have their ups and downs which they try to cover up through CRISES MANAGEMENT and they profoundly depend on their Public Relations Officers (PROs) to tactfully manage all these affairs

    Talking about the Future Trends, today the public is already online, and the internet allows anyone to be a publisher. Public relations practitioners must learn how to use the internet efficiently to address these issues for their clients. The future of PR in education sector says that the clients will expect more. They would want exclusive access to information as media is transforming. There would be information flow in every dimension. People would ask for transparency in information.
    Summarily, PRO’s have SEVEN major roles to perform for any educational institution which are as follows:-
    Expand the number of applicants to the institution.
    Help the institution to become better known.
    Help the institution to gain an enhanced reputation.
    Influence decision makers to smile upon one’s institution.
    Improve internal relations; teachers, students, other administrative staff.
    Maintain good relations with the community.
    Maintain positive relations with the alumni.
