Pitchengine Launches Student Program; Free PR Toolkit Access for Schools and University Comms Programs #PitchEd
Pitchengine, makers of pioneering new tools for communications and PR professionals worldwide, are bringing their PR Toolkit to students everywhere through a new "Pitch Ed" Program developed for educators and students alike."We've always supported communications programs informally through the years, but this program is designed to make it easy on educators who want to incorporate more modern methods of digital PR into their curriculum," explained Jason Kintzler, Pitchengine's Founder and CEO.Because students are able to incorporate video and other multimedia elements into a tool like Smart Pitch, educators can teach them how to shoot video, capture gifs, and other things that traditional PR curriculum just don't inspire."We've been encouraged by how many graduates we see bringing Pitchengine with them into their first jobs at agencies or in-house at corporations," said Kintzler.According to Kintzler, students are going to get a glimpse of tools that just don't exist yet at every organization on the planet. That should give them a leg-up on more traditionally trained PR and communications grads."It is exciting to have the opportunity that we are able to get a look into the future of our field." — Jenna, Marquette UniversityPitchengine, which launched in 2008, created the original Social Media Release software that propelled the industry into a new era of digital PR. Since then, Pitchengine has been used by brands like Walmart, Budweiser, Zappos and 50,000 others worldwide to create and share engaging content with journalists, influencers and customers.Colleges and Universities including USC, Oregon, Auburn, Kent State, Marquette, Wyoming and many more have all incorporated Pitchengine into their classrooms in recent years.To learn more about #PitchEd or to add it to your University's PR or Comms curriculum, drop us an email at email@example.com.
