For our recent public relations graduates…great news! Three of the cities that made the “home to the happiest PR professionals” list are right here in the Midwest! St. Louis, Chicago and Indianapolis were all on the top 10 list of cities with the most-satisfied workers in the public relations and marketing industry.
For me, job satisfaction is just as important, ok, maybe even more important, than salary. That is probably evident considering the job sector I am in! Seriously though, who wants to wake up every day to go to a job you dislike immensely? I know I hear the same from many of my students. They chose the public relations field because it affords them the opportunity to work in a wide array of industries from healthcare to the equestrian industry. I like that they want to combine their personal passions with their professional careers. I see some amazing success stories in the making!
I know our graduates and undergraduates continue to hear how tough the job market is right now, but I am confident with the skills they have acquired and their professional drive to succeed, they will do just that. Here are a few added resources that may help those who are in the job search right now:
In the meantime, pull up a chair and let’s talk.
