Public Relations Knowledge Exam: Your Entry Into Practice

Next PRK Exam: September 24 – The next Public Relations Knowledge (PRK®) exam is scheduled for September 24!

This intensive exam was created by the CPRS National Council on Education to test the overall grasp of concepts and procedures most commonly used in the day-to-day life of junior PR and communication professionals.

Companies that receive a high number of job applications have indicated they look for more reliable methods of assessing prospective and newly hired employees. After successfully completing the PRK exam, individuals will be able to set themselves apart from other applicants with this resumé builder. They will be able to enter the job market with increased confidence and be received with added respect.
