Geez! How did I miss this one?
According to Rachel Zupek, a writer at careerbuilder.com, “public relations manager” ranks among the Top 20 jobs with the highest salary growth in the past year. I knew there was a reason to be optimistic about this business (yesterday’s post notwithstanding).
How reliable is this survey? That’s anyone’s guess, as there’s no detail about methodology. Could be like so much of the research we see today — a come on to grab our attention and pull in our clicks. It worked!
Yes, my friends, according the study, the top U.S. earners with the title of “PR manger” earn $96,720 while the average salary is $72,132. So when you go home tonight, have some champagne and celebrate our collective career success.
You know, I spent most of my practitioner years at the PR manager level or higher. If you want my opinion, we’re workin’ way too cheap!
