I'm thinking It might be hard for her to get a job that would pay for her move from across the country with a Communications Degree?? Only hard to get positions will pay for that move. At least that's how it is with my career field

Yeah, I agree, but doesn't sound like that's one of her expectations. Hence, the reason she mentioned the $2500 in savings? Not sure...

I should have stopped reading this stupid article after the first line:

Quote:
You've probably heard that being a communications major means a lot of job opportunities will be available for you after graduation.
That's idiotic and I have never, ever heard anyone say that. If I did, I would reach out and slap them in the face.

Then this article tries to disguise a single idea, "Work in PR" into three separate ideas based on company size and whether the company is for profit. This is ridiculous. You could easily fill up 100 ideas identifying different TYPES of companies where you could work in PR. But that's like saying there are 3 different TV reporters you can be: small market, mid market, or large market.

Work in the government? Is that really necessary to say? The government hires professionals in almost every single field...no matter what you do, you can probably do it for the government. I'm surprised this author didn't say, "work for the military."

Work at a start-up? Hmmm, ok, but do WHAT exactly for a start-up? There are start-ups in everything, no matter what you do, you can work for a start-up. I'm sure there's a healthcare start-up out there looking for cardiovascular surgeons, and probably a space one looking for astronauts. This is generalized useless advice.

This article is terrible.

Thanks for the advice,

I know a few people who have relocated to the area from California and love it. I also know people who will help me once I get there. I know I snoikd find employment first but s lot of job opportunities are iffy when you live on the other side of the world.

Thanks for the advice so far
