That doesn’t mean they’re satisfied.
According to the results of the first-ever PR Daily Salary and Job Satisfaction survey, 71 percent of public relations professionals received salary increases in 2012. Most raises were modest—24 percent of respondents got pay bumps of 2 to 3 percent—but a significant portion earned salary increases of 10 percent or more. Most respondents expect a raise in 2013.
In terms of salary, 51 percent of PR professionals make between $35,000 and $75,000.
Despite the gains, most PR professionals are dissatisfied with their pay.
