Thanks Michelle! This is very helpful. I was thinking along the same lines as starting in an agency and there a few in NYC that seem pretty good. I've also tried writing my resume to reflect the skills that they are looking for in job posts. I'm hoping that experience can first get me an in-road and then prehaps some salary negotiation power. Glad to hear your experience in PR has gone so well! I'm interested in tech, real estate, and luxury lifestyle industries...are there any firms you would recommend that are good for those?
