Graduating in both high school and college is considered one of the biggest milestones as it marks the true beginning to a business life and brings people closer to the dream job that they want. Since many of the courses involve business subjects, some graduates may be interested with PR jobs or public relations jobs. Others might be more interested in sales and advertising related jobs if they finished communication courses. Actually, jobs in advertising are rather similar to the PR jobs, since they involve the practice of promoting products, services, and/or individuals. Getting a job in advertising and PR is possible for graduates if you follow the path laid out here.

Understanding PR Jobs
Just like any other job, it is important to understand the role of a public relations officer so that you are fully prepared when you get your interview. Public relations simply bridge the gap between the organization the PR officer represents and the rest of the public in terms of information flow. It is more than standard advertising because the exposure occurs in third-party outlets that are credible. They are responsible for forging bonds and relationships with the people for them to have a more positive outlook towards the company. This is the goal for everyone that gets involved with PR jobs.

Evaluating your Skills
Since all jobs in public relations involve communication with other individuals including ones that you may not know very well, good communication skills is a must have and will help determine the success in your line of work once you become a full-time public relations officer. Depending on the organization, the communication skills required may be written, verbal, or both. What matters most is that the point or message is carried out to the public with completeness and clarity.

The challenge of delivering that message lies on getting people interested with the subject, product, or service and that is where the advertising skills kick in. Your public relations job will require extensive advertising skills to establish the right connection to your target audience. People that know how to think out of the box and have decent creativity skills are often the best advertisers that do the job effectively.

Lastly, every PR officer should be aware of the market around them including the similar products and services that are directly competing with the one that you represent. Obviously you want your company to stick out from the rest and even if your organization has the leading edge in terms of product quality, the majority of the audience will choose product based on the performance of the PRs. Good performance means relating with them and the competition around them.

Once you have those skills in check and fully understand your responsibilities as a PR officer, you can freely pursue the job of the company you wish to represent. Having strong passion is very important the company's growth depends on you and your future colleagues.
