Work placements for PR – Hit by recession

From being on my work placement this year, I believe I hit lucky with getting a position before the industry tightened its financial belt. I can see from other blogs and by speaking to other students that many placement opportunities have been snapped away from second year students who are currently searching. My placement company are stopping any more permanent staff employment never mind student positions.

It is proven that it will be hard, and therefore there will most likely be even more students in the final year of PR… resuting in a higher number of graduates fighting for the same limited number of PR jobs this time next year.

I think that looking for jobs or placement positions in the public sector may be slightly easier than private, but it is a stuggling area! Is been a student PR student going to be a nightmare?…
