Cultivating Your Mental Game

By Carolyn Covey Morris, Founder and President, QMobius, Inc. A few years ago, I went to a breakfast to hear a motivational speaker and former CMO of a top global brand. His talk was boring, but by chance, I sat next to a mental trainer who works with top Olympic and professional athletes. He told me that 80 to 90 percent of an athlete’s success at each level is due to their mental game. The difference between a competent and an elite athlete is almost all mental.

Do’s and Don’ts When Applying for Internships

by Betsy Orton Chief Development Officer Mi Esuelita PreschoolAs we approach the annual Career Fair hosted by SMU PRSSA, 4-6p, Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019, in the Hughes-Trigg Ballroom, tips and techniques for applying for internships are especially timely.Do’s When Applying for Internships The PRSSA Career Fair is a perfect place to meet potential employers 1. DO have someone read your resume and cover letter before you send it out. Seriously, give it to a teacher, a parent, a friend with better writing skills than you have. When I get a badly written resume and/or cover letter, I get so distracted by the mistakes that I don’t pay as much attention to the content. It doesn’t make me want to interview you; it makes me want to edit it in red and send it back to you.2. DO check what you’ve got on your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any other online presence. Just like you should be looking up my organization on the internet, we’re looking you up too. We understand that you’re in college and do fun things (we did those things too), but use some discretion on your posts and pictures.3. DO have writing samples available if you’re applying for a position that will require writing. When you send them along, think about the subject matter and relevance. It’s not that I don’t enjoy reading your 20-page paper about the trials and tribulations of wildebeests
