WHO WE ARE.
Hubbell Connections is Michigan State University’s PRSSA nationally affiliated, student-run public relations agency. The agency helps aspiring public relations professionals gain hands-on experience and develop skills learned in the classroom by working with real clients from the university, local area and beyond.
“My position in Hubbell Connections as an account associate and now an account executive has allowed me to build my portfolio while working with real clients,” said Danielle O’Brien, account executive for Jeanologie Boutique. “My experiences with the organization helped me land my first internship this past summer.”
Hubbell Connections provides Michigan State students with the edge they need to stand out with future employers in the public relations industry.
“Hubbell Connections kick-started my public relations career. It gave me the opportunity to work with real people, producing real results in my community. I’d highly recommend getting involved, even if only for a semester,” said Mackenzie Mohr, VP of professional development for MSU PRSSA.
