How common is it for public relations specialists to move from different organizations during their career?

A public relations specialist visited one of my classes to provide students a glimpse into his career life. One of the details I took notice was how much he moved from organization to organization after a few years.

All my life, I was raised to believe in the notion of working at one company or organization for the entirety of my life. Hearing this from a professional was unusual.

Comment your own experiences and thoughts on this commonality in the career.

Kevin,


It isn't unusual in any profession to not remain at one company for your entire career. People move to organizations and companies for their own reasons most of the time it's based on a new career goal or position offered. You do not have to be tied to one company but you do want to not moves on a daily basis that is not good. But a change after 2 yrs or 6 months for some careers isn't alarming. Some people choose to stay where they are because they are fulfilled at that company within their position. For a public relations specialist they go where they are needed and help the companies that need them to assist. That profession is one that comes with moving a lot.

Really it's very common. It's not that it's a PR thing, instead it's the nature of the world today.
