I saw this picture a while ago and it was funny to me. Public Relations has been a career where its definitions vary and changes often. Of course it does not surprise me that the people in our lives would not quite understand what exactly a public relations professional does. I don’t know how many times I had to explain, over and over again, what my career of choice is to my mother. She usually has a response of, “Whatever makes you happy.”
It is safe to say that Samantha Jones, from Sex and the City, has oversimplified the image of PR professionals, but that is just me feeling “What I think I do” is grandiosely important than “What I really do”.
