James Steers holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing, with a minor in psychology, and a master’s degree in public relations and corporate communication.

A communicator with a passion for writing and giving back, James has held the position of Public Relations specialist at Lexington School and Center for the Deaf since 2012. This experience has been supplemented by consultancy work and an internship at the Chamber Group, a public relations agency specializing in music and entertainment. During his time there, he worked with celebrities across various entertainment genres – including Mariah Carey, Kelly Rowland, Tinashe, Tamar Braxton, and Wendy Williams.

Though his own blog is still finding its feet, James has managed corporate social media accounts for some time. THEPRGRADUATE explores everything public relations: from discussing current events from a PR perspective, to talking about the role of public relations itself – even discussing personal experiences and offering advice for making it in communications.

James is originally from a small town in the South of England, but now lives in Astoria, where – having completed his master’s at New York University – he’s currently seeking employment.
