PR field to grow by 24% over the next decade

Looks like I made a good career choice (law school loans notwithstanding) ... According to the Department of Labor, the PR industry is expected to grow by 24% over the next decade. Writes PRNewser:

Did you make a good choice in choosing to study PR or communications in college? The U.S. Department of Labor says yes.

In their report, the "Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition," the department says the PR job market, "is expected to grow 24 percent from 2008 to 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations."

Currently the industry employs 275,200, a figure which is projected to grow to 341,300 by 2018. In their year end report published today, U.S. News and World Report calls PR Specialist, "one of the 50 best careers of 2010."

RE: Growing field of PR. I studied Journalism in college and saw the trend towards students studying subjects pointing to a career in Public Relations. I'm waiting for someone to be smart enough to do a show or movie about how PR professionals do their jobs for clients who have public image problems e.g., Tiger Woods scandal.

To begin with, your feet will really feel more support than you may obtain in other jogging shoes. Therefore, it really is tricky for the feet for getting out of shape no matter how numerous miles you run every day. What's more, you may not get nagging injuries which are normally connected with different kinds of exercise due to the flexibility the shoes present for you. Yet another attractive component of those shoes will be the style factor.
