Get Hired: #PR and #Media Jobs of 7/12
If you’ve been looking for a job in public relations, communications, journalism or social media for over six months, you may be getting discouraged as many Americans who are searching for work have gotten after a long stretch of unemployment. But I encourage you to keep your search on and in the meantime continue to stay active in your professional organizations, with volunteer work, and networking events. Also don’t forget to reach out to local public relations firms like Mopwater PR that may be in need of an extra hand or intern to help out on rotating projects. These projects can be great resume-builders, and ways to get a great reference.
If you’re moping, brew yourself a cup of strong coffee and read this inspiring post about how persistence paid off for Kendall Wayland, a University of Central Florida grad who landed a job at Vantage Communications even in this dismal economy.
Then take a look at these jobs and send your cover letter and resume out.
