PR pros are often regarded for their bravado and hard work.
Although the work can be taxing, that doesn’t mean jobs in PR aren’t exciting.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the number of employed public relations specialists will reach 316,200 by 2020. As this number grows, the areas in which young PR pros can specialize will become more diverse and, probably, more interest-driven.
If celebrity gossip is your game, there are ample opportunities in the entertainment industry that focus on publicity. If you’re interested in governmental policy, there’s no shortage of public affairs positions—especially during a presidential election year.
If you have a thirst for creating great content and are a beer connoisseur, then consider a unique opportunity that’ll (ahem) tap that pair of proficiencies.
The World of Beer Inc. is hiring for its “Drink It Intern” program. These positions will focus on creating content through one-of-a-kind experiences and establishing strong connections in the brewery industry.
The ideal candidate will be adventurous, proficient in social media and a strong storyteller.
“The internship is about sharing beer and encounters from around the globe and down the street—the foundation the original WOB tavern was built on,” CEO Paul Avery said in a press release. Candidates must be at least 21 years old to apply.
