    So I'm graduating in spring with a B.A. in English and journalism...
    I still have a passion for writing...and journalism...but I'm realistic about the market...
    So I was thinking about public realtions...

    Is this one of those industries where experience is key...u can get in it with any type of degree...
    Or can u really pick up some skills in graduate school...that will make u look better in the eye of employers...
    Any insight [​IMG]

    I just texted my sister (who works in public relations) this and asked and she said yes. She feels like their office gets like 20 resumes a day but that is agreat way to get yours on top of the stack. Also like DMan said, try to get an internship, experience is obviously a huge plus.
