Public Relations

Odds of Getting In

The odds of getting an entry-level job in public relations are about as good as getting most any other beginner's job in marketing. Your degree will help, especially if you focused on marketing, advertising, writing, or project management as part of your studies. Insider's tip: Once you are in, remember to stay focused on what you want to do—otherwise you'll get spun into a part of the department that you didn't intend to end up in. Like the picking-up-coffee-for-everyone-else department.
