Get ahead with a Diploma in Public Relations
If witty comebacks and persuasive sales language is a part of who you are, then working in public relations is just up your street. This is an exciting field, where you could spend time compiling documents, liaising with clients, doing interviews, attending functions, pretty much anything and everything to position the company favourably in the public eye.
You role as a public relations officer will be a mix between reputation management and sales speak, in order to safeguard the identity of the company as well as playing up its attributes.
Public relations officers and practitioners act as the guardians and custodians of any organisation, having to step in both during times of crisis and calm, to communicate critical messages to audiences and the public. Prepare yourself for writing press releases, advertorials, attending business and branding functions as part of your daily job description.
You can become the custodian and gatekeeper of any organisation with an ICESA Diploma in Public Relations.
