Press Secretaries and Political Consultants
Employment for public relations specialists, which includes press secretaries and political consultants, is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022. Consultants and media representatives will become increasingly important to candidates and elected officials. Television ads and Internet campaigns have become necessary to reach the public. The work of press secretaries will expand as more news networks and news magazines closely follow the decisions and actions of government officials.
