Title of post: One of the Biggest Questions About PR

The day that I do not hear someone ask me “What exactly is PR”, will be the happiest day of my life. Although many people are unsure and naive about what public relations entails, at least people are asking because they are interested. Usually the words promote or publicize are associated with PR when one is talking about the definition, but I completely agree that people need to know how it is done and the behind the scenes of it because many underestimate the work that goes into this particular career. When people hear, read, or attend events of companies, no one ever asks themselves “Well I wonder who put on this event” because they are in the now and PR professionals are there to work on the before by getting people’s attention about organizations. I think the two of us should team up and make a fun video for people to learn the “ins and outs” of a PR professional.
