What kind of PR person are you?
PR roles and how they relate to the PR mindset.
Mike and Amy talk about the different types of roles played in the PR game. Entire jobs could encompass just one of the roles, but more often than not PR people dabble within all of these roles.
Before digging into the types of PR roles, Amy focused on the mindset successful PR people need to have. No matter where you take your career, the PR mindset can guide you towards excellence in any field, beyond this industry. This mindset incorporates three central elements: never giving up, maximizing all campaigns, and serving as the best “secretary” for clients and media.
The different types of PR roles that were explained include:
- The publicist
- The B2B’er
- The numbers-pusher
- The do-gooder
- The inside-agent
- The fire-stopper
- The strategist
Listen for an in-depth discussion as Mike & Amy unpack each category. In fact, there are so many exciting roles PR people can play, Mike pointed out that we were missing some, such as public affairs specialist, the digital maximizer and the PIO.
