Does Public Relations Make the List?

Making the “Top Ten” Again and Again

Describing public relations isn’t easy and maybe even impossible. There are so many different aspects to the job. No PR ¬†company is the same and the tasks vary day to day, regardless of what industry you are working in.

While looking through America’s most stressful jobs going into 2012 certain careers are expected to make the list and rightfully so. Police officers, firefighters and even taxi drivers (which had not crossed my mind but makes perfect sense). ¬†Although public relations can be very stressful, in both good and bad ways, I was surprised to see it on the list. PR also made the list of the 15 Careers that Need Coffee the Most; no surprise there. If you’re not into coffee, green tea might be your best bet.

On a lighter note, PR can be really fun and the day always provides a new adventure. While it makes the most stressful list, it also makes the list for fun careers. There are so many directions that you can go with PR. Entertainment, corporate, sports, food, lifestyle, ANYTHING! You can take a passion and turn it into a career and explore until you find the right fit. PR is such a people-person career (at least most of the time) and if you love working with people, that’s the way to do it.

I hope you enjoyed my first blog post and more will be coming. Thanks for reading!
