OK...I am putting this out there...perhaps peer pressure and/or support will carry me through the next several weeks. I am taking the APR exam for the third time at the end of June.
Yes, I said third time. Hoping the adage, "third time's a charm" is true for me.
I began documenting my APR process in late 2006. I made it through the Readiness Review with flying colors, but life drama has clouded the way of exam preparation and completion. This time around I have a personal "study fairy" and a nose-to-the-grindstone study ethic.
Why get the APR? The study process for the APR is a wonderful way for me to go back to my communication roots, discover why I chose this field and evaluate how I have practiced and put theory into practice. I am reestablishing my passion for public relations. The acronym on the signature block means nothing without the drive and results.
As if one ever doubted my passion level...
