    Hey Pam,

    Sorry for getting back so late. I have been on vacation for a little over 2 weeks. Public Relations can be a fun job. Public Relations is always a difficult job to explain, but I will try! Public Relations is a little event planning, social media marketing, product placement, crisis communication, writing, branding, SEO, email marketing, and media relations. It really is a little of everything. You have to be either good at some or find people that can compliment your abilities. Technology has made the industry adapt to the changes as well. If you're thinking it sounds a little like marketing, well, your not wrong. Both industries overlap each other in some areas. Public Relations tries to bring awareness to the brand. Marketing positions the brand to be something. They both compliment each other well. I hope that helps!
