The PR industry

Public relations professionals, whether at an agency or in-house at a company, are tasked with protecting, promoting, and developing a brand. Building a relationship between a company and their target audience requires experts who are creative, innovative, organized, and experienced. It’s a challenging and fast-moving field with many distinct niches.

PR professionals are in high demand, but the industry is also extremely competitive. PR is one of the most popular university degrees today, and students who instead study communications, journalism, and marketing, among other degrees, often pursue PR careers. That being said, it’s a multi-billion dollar industry with plenty of room for professionals of all backgrounds and areas of expertise and interest. Love fashion? There’s a PR job for that. Studied finance? There’s room for you in PR. Are you a great writer and speaker? PR is a great option for you as well. The opportunities in this field are endless, and it’s a great option for a stable and enjoyable career.
