    Hoping someone can help me with an issue I’ve been having.

    I’m in the Public Relations industry but I’ve been unemployed for 3 months now. I have about 2 years of entry-level PR experience, but I can’t seem to find any work for my experience level. All the opportunities out there now are either for entry level employees or someone with much more experience than I currently have.

    I feel like I’m stuck in a rut. The PR industry is difficult to break into in the first place because you have to know a lot of people and you have to be able to build relationships with the right people in the media. If I keep taking these entry level jobs, I’m not going to be able to make the connections and learn the tactics I need to succeed.

    Does anyone have any tips or advice?

    Hello and welcome to CareerFuel! I can understand why you are so frustrated- even most “entry level” jobs these days seem to require2 or more years of experience, which doesn’t sound so entry level to me! Let me see what we can do to get insights from someone in your industry!

    Thanks again for the question!
