Last year, PR officer came in at number two on this list. And in 2010, that job was number eight. This year’s determination was made for much the same reason as 2011: it’s a “highly competitive” field that requires public speaking, interaction with “potentially hostile members of the media,” and follows tight deadlines. Average pay is listed as $91,810.
