PR is an industry that gets into your blood.

Though pros may differ in their practices and settings—from agency to in-house—there are a number of telltale signs all PR veterans can identify with, and that many wear as badges of honor.

2. You carry yourself with grace when dealing with media, analysts, or influencers because it can affect the reputation of the company (or end up on Twitter).

3. You’re frustrated by the ongoing debate about the value of press releases because you spend most of your time writing them.

5. Your day starts and ends with a cup of coffee.
