My Professional Connections

The national PRSA Jobcenter is also a great resource. It puts more than 2,000 public relations, communications and marketing jobs within your reach. You can search jobs by keyword, job function, industry, organizational setting, job type or location. Or use customized alerts and RSS feeds to deliver newly posted jobs right to your inbox.

As a member of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), you can post your resume and even ask experts for help on an upcoming interview.
