What is the job of a Public Relations Manager? Are these only in certain fields?

I really enjoy doing public relations activities, and interacting with the public. I hope to continue doing public relations activities, and eventually lead them. While I enjoy doing PR in the emergency services section, I dont really know how PR works in a company or business. #public-relations #pr #public-relations-management

I'm feeling lost in my Public Relations studies, considering applying for an "executive assistant" position.

I have an internship at a student-run agency at my university but I feel like I'm still not getting "real world" experience. Two of my foundational classes for my major were with terrible professors that no longer work for the department and I don't want to prolong my graduation any longer/pay more to retake those courses. Overall, I feel like a spinning compass with no direction. And I'm supposed to graduate in May. I looked at positions and found myself looking at "executive assistant" jobs. Most of those tasks seem relevant to what I've been doing in my agency while assisting team leads. Taking meeting notes, scheduling meetings, phone calls, general logistics etc. Is this an acceptable career jump? Would it help me find some direction? It appeals to me because I'd be working closely with someone in a higher position and I might be able to gain insight into their world. I'm very much a learn by doing/observing person. All of my "dream job"(publicity) postings require skills that I don't have. Or they're in locations that are not possible for me. #career-counseling #college-major #job #career #college #publicrelations #pr #executiveassistant #assistant #graduation #job-search

Agency or Industry? The ultimate PR question!

I am graduating in May of this year and there is a lot of talk about going into an agency profession or starting out in industry. I know I want to do social media management, but I don't know if I should start out in agency or industry. Is agency as scary and difficult as people say it is? Which career path did you take and would you have done it differently? I will probably end up trying both in my career, but I want to know which one you think would be better for getting the most experience and getting really good at something! #PR #agency #industry #jobsearch #socialmedia #publicrelations

Is it better to take time off right out of college?

What are your thoughts on this? A lot of people have asked me if I am going to take a gap year or go backpacking for a few months. I'd like to know if there is a way to make this travel experience relevant to PR and maybe find a way to use it as a work experience type of thing. Thoughts? #PR #Traveling #gapyear #graduating I'd like to hear from someone who took time off and what they feel they gained from it. It may also be helpful to hear from someone who didn't and why they think that is the best choice. Also, if someone could provide ideas for how to make traveling a work experience type of thing, that would be helpful as well.

How to give back to your community as a PR professional?

How do you know when you're doing well at work?

I just finished an internship at a PR firm over winter break and while the work was a great learning experience, I worry how well my work met professional standards. Should I ask for more feedback next time or is there other ways to improve? #PR #Feedback

What are the main differences between working in house or at a PR agency?

As a second year Public Relations major I have heard some differences between working for a PR agency and working in-house for a company, but I would like to hear more about what daily life in one or the other is life for someone working in the field. Is there one that is preferred for certain types of people? #public-relations #pr #in-house #pr-agency

I am a very social person, do you think public relations is a good career choice for me?

Hello. I m a junior in high school and I am looking at different careers. I like to talk to people and I like to make new friends. I am a good communicator and I don't mind being in new situations. I also really like the film and fashion industry and really would want to make connections with celebrities. Is PR a good place for me? You are also welcome to tell me what PR consists because I only have a vague idea of what it really consists of. #career #communications #fashion-design #public-relations #pr #celebrity
