PR listed among the 50 best careers for 2011

U.S. News Rankings
U.S. News and World Report listed ‘Public relations specialist’ as one of the top 50 careers for 2011 yesterday. It cited a strong growth potential and a flexible career path as some of the reasons for their ranking.
The publication is part of its annual ‘America’s Best’ campaign that examines everything from law schools to hospitals.
When Rosanna Fisk, Chair and CEO of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) was asked about the ranking in an interview yesterday, she said, “PR is one of the most satisfying careers. We face some of the hottest issues in the world.” She went on to say, “On the other end [we have] more fun stuff. Product launches and grand openings. It really provides a great variety of work that touches peoples lives.”
The magazine cited the Labor Department’s forecast of PR jobs increasing by 24% between 2008 and 2018 as a reason for its ranking, as well as the flexible career paths that PR provides its professionals.
The Labor Department estimates the median salary a Public Relationships Specialists makes is $51,960.
