In public relations, you get to tell your client's or employer’s story. Public relations specialists plan, direct, and create material that will enhance or maintain the public image of a corporation, individual, organization, non-profit, or association.


According to U.S. News and World Reports, public relations ranks #3 in Best Creative & Media Jobs based on salary, job prospects, future growth, and work-life balance. The best-paid 10 percent in the field made approximately $105,000 annually.
