Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Eighty-five advertising and public relations jobs in agencies, business corporations, nonprofit organizations, electronic and print media, government, and freelance operations are treated individually in this book. In addition to the basic career description, each profile lists alternate job titles; information about salaries, employment prospects, locations, and advancement opportunities; education, experience, and other prerequisites for the job; relevant trade associations and unions; and tips for entry. Brief appendixes include degree programs, internships, agencies, publications, and a glossary. The data supplied are generally reliable and quite useful to potential job seekers. Recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just graduated with a major in PR. This books lists 88 jobs in advertsing and PR. However, it is out of date. In the PR industry there are: bloggers, web site developers and other internet position. This books lists NONE of them. In advertising, some positions (like print traffic manager) are almost non-existant. This book needs to REMOVE old 1990's job titles and ADD the jobs that firms are hiring for in the 2000's. This review is for the 2006 version of the book (4th ed). I think the author has gotten lazy and needs to do a complete overhall. This book may be of use if you are looking for a job in PRINT advertising, but most advertising agencies seem to want a person with good design skills and not just newspaper print. This book NEVER lists web skills or HTML that many employers seek today. Sad.

Not what I expected. It told me the basics, which I already know.
