According to the Department of Labor the Public Relations industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. It is also one of the toughest industries to get a job in. At 5WPR we are always hiring, and I also recently came across some interesting PR jobs and opportunities I wanted to share from a variety of different sources:
