#Read3: Sept. 15, 2013

Happy Sunday, everyone!

With only two months left of my time here in Philadelphia, I’m busy at work with the Global Philadelphia Association on the GlobalPhilly2013 campaign. It’s been an interesting and honorable experience so far working with them on all of the events associated with the campaign. This is all happening while I continue to prepare for my move back to Southern California in early November, following the conclusion of the campaign.

That being said, let’s take a look now at this week’s #Read3.


  1. Your Career and You: “PR Ethics…Two Steps Forward; One Step Back” – Kirk Hazlett (APR, Fellow PRSA) reminds PR professionals that ethics is an important part of the public relations field and how it is also important to educate those that do not practice ethical behavior.
  2. Eight Questions to Ask Before Accepting an Internship – Gerard Corbett advises young professionals on what to look out for when searching for and accepting internships. Although it’s not a new controversy, recent headlines shined spotlights on several high-profile companies that are offering internships for little to no pay. For any job in general, it’s important to go through every bit of detail before you know what you’re getting into.
  3. How do they do that? Dig a subway tunnel – Metro Los Angeles’ The Source blog looks at how construction crews dig up subway tunnels during construction. L.A. currently has two subway lines (Red and Purple Lines) along with three of the four light rail lines (Blue, Gold and Expo Lines) that have some kind of underground segments along their routes. Construction will begin at various points in the future for several new rail lines and extensions of existing ones.

If you have any recommendations for next week’s #Read3 (it can be about anything), leave a comment below at any time during the week or tweet me @SimonOh.

Have a great rest of your week!
