30 jobs in the PR and marketing world

Public relations is not only one of the best careers for women, but also one of the top internship choices, according to recent studies.


Women looking to enter public relations, rejoice. The career field looks promising for you.

According to a recent CareerCast report, public relations made the list of the 10 best careers for women. The company reported the industry’s annual median salary was more than $95,000, with a 13 percent projected growth in positions. Event planning, as well as advertising and promotions management, also made the list of top careers.

InternMatch conducted an internship survey recently, and found that marketing, PR and advertising make up the trifecta for most students seeking internships. Nearly 36 percent said they look for communications internships. Nearly 42 percent of PR and marketing internship seekers are female.

If you fall into these popular categories, this week’s featured job listing could help you launch your communications career.

TomTom is looking for a PR intern in its Massachusetts office.

Anyone who uses a GPS device or sport watch might recognize TomTom: The company’s real-time traffic information is available in 46 countries, and its maps are used in 126 countries.

Candidates should have critical thinking skills and be confident about taking initiative with their ideas. “Being curious, taking risks and challenging the norm are all part of who we are,” the company’s listing states.

The internship gives one candidate the opportunity to work with TomTom’s global sports and drive businesses, so an understanding of technology and knowledge of how to create brand ambassadors are essential to being the right fit for the position.

Interested candidates should also be prepared for an “exciting and challenging” internship. The listing promises hopefuls it will “be anything but dull.”
