These days, those beginning their PR career journey often have obtained their Bachelor’s degree in public relations, communications, advertising, journalism, or the like. Towards the end of their academic work, they start looking for that first post - usually starting in an internship before eventually moving to full-time employment as a PR, communications, media specialist or press secretary. Many work for more than one firm as an intern, allowing time to find the perfect fit for the type of specialization best suited to their interests and needs.
As their career and experience grow, they’ll find themselves more in the middle of specialized tasks and innovative strategies, but the core work will also always be essential, whether done directly by the worker or if those efforts are directed. Still, the necessary skills and understanding are at the root of PR work.
But no matter where they end up working, as an intern or later, with a large firm offering them any number of divisions to hone their skills, or with a small boutique firm specializing in just one or two sectors, some common tasks on the list include:
·Prepare information for media sources and write press releases
·Maintain corporate image, brand, and identity
·Research and draft speeches
·Arrange interviews for top executives
·Provide information requested by media sources
·Help clients communicate effectively for smoother dealings in their organizations and with the public
·Evaluate existing advertising and promotions determining compatibility with the company’s media and PR efforts.
