PR isn’t a career as fierce as Olivia Pope makes it seem on “Scandal” or as sexy as Samantha Jones portrayed on “Sex in the City,” but those in the industry love what they do.
It’s also an industry with opportunities for growth.
U.S. News & World Report ranked PR as the No. 3 best creative and media job, writing:
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment for public relations specialists will grow 6 percent between 2014 and 2024. During that time period, 14,900 new jobs will need to be filled.
PR is also becoming more important to marketing efforts, which opens even more opportunities.
