2016 Public Relations Entry-level Jobs

If you know how to put a positive spin on things, then you’ll likely find your niche with entry-level jobs in public relations. Public relations managers and/or specialists are typically employed by one or more clients who wish to maintain a positive public image. Often referred to as “spin doctors,” public relations professionals know how to do damage control when a client makes a mistake or is being seen in an unfavorable light and, even when things are good, work to present a positive image for a client. Clients might include large businesses or corporations or individuals within the public eye, such as celebrities, politicians and more.

On average, a public relations manager will bring home a whopping $91,810 per year, while a public relations specialist will bring home a still-nice $52,090 per year. The main difference between the two positions, other than pay, is that managers typically assume leadership roles in which they may manage multiple clients and/or other public relations professionals, while specialists typically deal only with one client at a time or work behind the scenes instead of directly with clients.

No matter which of these jobs in public relations you go after, however, all signs point to a bright, stable future. The need for people to fill managerial public relations entry-level jobs is expected to grow 16% between now and the year 2020, while the need for public relations specialists should grow by an impressive 23%.
