PROS


  • The demand for Public Relations never goes down, branding is very important for a public image.

  • You build a large and diverse network full of ambitious individuals.

  • There is an array of fields to venture into, from political parties to advertising agencies.

  • Public relations is a vastly changing field, one that is fast-paced. You will need to produce work with very little notice. You’ll learn how to work well under pressure and stay organized while doing so.

  • You can drastically increase the profitability of your company.

CONS


  • There is always a chance that a well-devised news event or release will get “bumped” from planned media coverage because of a more critical breaking news story, such as wars, severe weather or serious crime.

  • While a PR campaign has the potential to yield a high return on promotional expense, it also has the potential to produce the opposite if the news media feels there is little value in running a story pitch.

  • Unlike advertising, you cannot control how your business is portrayed by the media, when your message will appear, and where it will be placed.

  • It can be difficult to measure the effectiveness of your work.

  • Your workload and work outcomes are unpredictable.
