Future Looks Bright for PR Grads

It’s finally your senior year and you are closing in on the last few months of school, what’s next? The questions keep circling around, what company is going to hire me, will I have to move far away, or will their even be a job in my major? Graduating can be scary, especially with the economy’s high unemployment rates. Luckily for the public relations field, the future looks bright. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics public relations specialists jobs are expected to grow 24% from 2008 to 2018, which is much faster than the average profession.  But as job growth increases it will also bring more competition to the field. Make sure to get as much experience while in school, so after graduating and starting your job search, you stand out among the crowd. To see more information on the nature of the work, earning, projection data and job outlook visit Bureau of Labor.

Here is a quote that I hope makes you think about stepping outside of your comfort zone and take on challenges that might lie ahead.

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”– Muhammad Ali



  1. Wow! That Muhammad Ali quote is true. Many people fail just because they dare to dream; what a sad condition to be in. I feel like our class really has a lot of hard-chargers, though. There are some lofty goals that people have among our class, and I hope every single one of them gets fulfilled.
