Roles of a PR Specialist
There are a number of things that a PR specialist is responsible for. A PR specialist anticipates, analyzes, and interprets public opinion, attitudes, and issues that might have an impact on the operations and plans of an organization. They offer counseling management and protect the reputation of an organization. PR specialists research, conduct, and evaluate programs of action and communications to contribute to the success of an organization’s goals through marketing, financials, community or government relations, and other programs. Planning and implementing an organization’s efforts to influence public policy are other roles of a PR specialist. They also set objectives, plan, budget, recruit, and train staff, and oversee content creation to drive customer engagement and generate leads.
