@Peachytalk:  I used to. I worked for 2 different agencies. Would you want agency work? My feeling after a few years was that it was kind of thankless work. You’re only as good as your latest hit and the halo burns bright and fast. I think client side work is much better. One of my bffs at work is our dir of media relations. You have to develop great relationships, know when to call in favors, know the right people within your organization and be a great writer. 

Why do you think PR?

@Peachytalk:  the pay for PR is not great. I’m not sure what flight attendants make, but an entry level position in the northeast will prob put you in the mid 30s. My friend is 12 years into her career & in the low 70s, tho is underpaid. As a mid level you can expect 45-55.
