We have all been asked the most daunting question for college students: “What are you going to do with your life with your degree?” This question is very overwhelming considering how vast the options are in our field. There are opportunities for public relations specialists in every line of work, from public utilities to fashion to sports and more. As an underclassman, the real question should be: “What interests you?” Finding your PR niche that makes work enjoyable is the cornerstone to a successful future.
