They say April showers bring May flowers.
April also brings waves of students about to graduate, filled with anticipation, pounding the pavement in search of that first job in PR and marketing.
But this year, finding that first job will require a combination of digital and practical skills.
The competition is fierce. The economy is just now beginning to turn. You have to stand heads and shoulders taller than your peers to even get an interview.
Here are five tips to help new grads land their dream job:
