When I was younger, I remember thinking that I wanted to have a huge house and make tons of money when I grew up. As I’ve gotten older though, I have found that those two things really aren’t as important as they seemed back then. Today I feel that family and friends and many other things are incredibly more important than achieving some desired social or economic status.
Some people’s view of public relations is that it is really all about how much money can be made. In my opinion, it is more important to maintain your integrity and find something within public relations that can be rewarding and enjoyable. Now, if that can garner more funds, then that would be just an added bonus.
Lately I’ve been thinking about non-profit organizations and how crucial it is for them to have people that are passionate about what they’re doing and not just doing a job for the money. It is wonderful to think that there are opportunities within public relations that would be just the right fit for many who feel that way.
I’m sure there are many people who agree with me, and I’m just as sure that there are many who disagree. Either way, I just hope that I can find a job that I enjoy and can work hard at. In the end, as long as I am able to pay off my school loans and eat and survive, then it doesn’t really matter so much how much money I make.
