I came across an article on Yahoo this morning and it’s about the “Top Exciting Careers That Pay” of course with myself freaking out about my career of choice and how long it’ll take me to find a job, it gave me a little hope seeing one of my career options being #2! But then again. i’m not exactly sure how credible these article really are. I just found it kind of funny how excited i got after reading it. 🙂
Here’s some of the article:
“If you’ve always wanted to be a part of the big, frenzied media machine and don’t mind stepping into the spotlight now and again, a career as a public relations specialist could satisfy your need for excitement – all while keeping you fairly compensated.
More specifically, PR specialists maintain relationships with the media, and figure out how to get their clients exposure in the news, notes Ceniza-Levine. The U.S. Department of Labor lists writing press releases, helping clients communicate to the public, drafting speeches, and arranging interviews for executives as some things you might do in this career.
Excitement Factor: “You’ll need a thick skin and a lot of energy because this job will always keep you on your toes,” says Augustine. “This is the perfect role for someone who enjoys helping others do well in the limelight, but prefers to stay out of it themselves.”
And Ceniza-Levine adds that because you’re working so often with the media on press releases and publicity conferences, your networking and communication skills will also regularly be tested.”
