PRSSA Launches New JobCenter
NEW YORK (September 15, 2006) - Opportunity has a fresh face. The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) has
given its online database, JobCenter, a complete makeover. PRSSA’s JobCenter is a comprehensive, online database of
public relations internships and job opportunities that are available for PRSSA members and Affiliate members only. JobCenter
also allows members to access career related advice and post their resumes.
Melissa Csuhran, PRSSA national vice president
of internship/job services, wanted to create a fresh professional atmosphere that would continue to benefit all PRSSA members.
In doing so, JobCenter’s transformation provides members with an enhanced and easy-to-use career site that not only

In addition to increased security, the site layout has been reconstructed for members to make searching for
jobs, managing resumes and similar functions for employers much more intuitive. Members can also be assured that a variety
of internships and jobs will be posted and updated regularly.
“I am in contact with at least three to five professionals
per week searching for talented interns,” said Csuhran. The new Web site will also provide scalable reporting tools
to analyze data and use of the database in order to better accommodate users in the future.
