Watch MTV Kids Try To Get A Job In PR And/Or Crush It

MTV Hired premieres tonight and the first episode focuses on getting a dream job in PR—at American Rebel PR, to be specific.

According to Washington Post TV critic Hank Stuever, who reviewed the show for today’s paper, as well as American Rebel PR’s owner Chris Detert, it’s not a pretty picture.

We’ll be blogging and Tweeting from the Mediabistro Career Circus tomorrow. It’s a half-day event starting at 12:30 jam-packed with speakers, roundtables, Gary Vaynerchuk, and networking. You can also grab 5 minutes with one of our career counselors to talk about freelancing, resume building, or whatever.
