Finding A Career Path Right For You!
There are many career paths for a public relations practitioner to take. Many young professionals will soon launch careers in agencies and businesses across the U.S., but some of the most exciting and rewarding public relations opportunities lie in international opportunities.
As social and economic changes open new markets around the world, businesses and nonprofits will need communicators with the skills to engage audiences across borders and platforms. Public relations practitioners often grow into international roles later in their careers, but young professionals can leverage graduate education to jump on the fast track to the global stage.
