PR: More than party planning and celebrity gawking!

NYC PR Girls, a blog I frequently peruse, has published this list to answer the age old question, “So what do PR girls do?”

These 10 bullet points are only half of what Public Relations is all about, but this list alone explains volumes about a PR Career. Some of the highlights include:

-Monitoring Media (As a current Social Media Intern, I can attest to the amount of time I spend on Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest/Instagram…all things social and I’m there!)

-Brainstorming Creative Ways to get Client X Coverage (This is another great point…any communications related field needs a creative mind to be on her toes to come up with the most innovative way to spread her company or client’s message.)

-Maintain Relationships With Media (Maintaining relationships is important for all industries, but particularly so in PR. Networking is a huge part of the field..you never know who you may meet that can get you press coverage where you wouldn’t believe, connections to a new client or invitations to exclusive events. So make sure you maintain those close contacts– and even start to build those acquaintance relationships. Were you featured in a particular media outlet’s publication a few years ago? Reach out! It can certainly happen again if you’re willing to try.)

Thanks again to NYC PR Girls–an inspirational site for us all! Read the full list here:
