Brianna’s Answer

I work in the public relations department of an account management agency and have worked for several public relations agencies prior. In my experience, the hours you work do depend some on the individual role, company culture and personal career goals as well as the ebb and flow of workload - it is my experience in every role I've held that there are busier times and there are slower times depending on client needs, budget etc. On average I would say I work between 40 to 42 hours a week.

Hope that helps!

I work in Community and Government Relations which is not exactly Public Relations, but is similar. I try to keep myself at 8 hours a day. I know that some days will be 10, 12 or even 14. Those long days can happy a few times a month, depending on what's going on. It's a dynamic job, which requires some flexibility, but that being said, you have some control over what you agree to be part of and what you don't. Many people in this field are very social and love being at evening events, dinners, receptions, etc.

Hope that is helpful.

A Public Relations Specialist's job is very demanding and dynamic. You can expect to often work long days and overtime to meet deadlines. Traveling is also a big part of the job based on your clients' needs to attend meetings, press conferences, events and community activities. Therefore, be open to being flexible with your time and available based on your clients' needs.
