Take what you know about public relations and match it with your specific talents and passions.
The things you can do in public relations, especially at a PR firm, are plentiful, and the career paths are varied. Here are some examples to consider for your video:
A Career in PR is an Opportunity for me to:
· Be a social media rock star
· Flex my creative chops
· Apply my critical thinking to complex issues
· Make the world a better place
