Public Relations Managers

Public relations managers are responsible for influencing the public's image and recognition of their client, be it a large corporation, a service, or an individual. This is done through a carefully set plan of public appearances, public relations campaigns, press releases, surveys, and other scheduled events. Public relations managers, especially at large corporations, oversee the work of many staff members such as public relations specialists, researchers, designers, and administrators. There are approximately 56,700 public relations managers employed in the United States.
