‘U.S. News’: PR Specialist One of the Best Careers for 2011

U.S. News and World Report has placed PR specialist among the top 50 careers of 2011. The publication says the industry is expected to add 66,000 jobs, or grow by 24 percent, between 2008 and 2018. Media annual earnings are reported at $51, 960, with the top 10 percent making about $96,000 (This figure seems a little low?).

The article also discusses the flexibility of a PR and PRSA 2010 chair and CEO Gary McCormick gives advice for building a PR career and the impact of social media.

Much like the Money/Payscale.com report that placed PR director at number 84 of the top 100 jobs in America, U.S. News says the the downside is the stress.

Other jobs on the list are accountant, dental hygienist, multimedia artist, and meteorologist.
