Florida sees downturn in PR jobs?
The Orlando Business Journal takes a look at the PR industry in Florida, and noticed that PR is starting to see effects of client slowdown. On the Florida PR Association’s job board in June, there were 103 open positions in private firms, which was down 53% from 217 jobs in June 2007.
“[It] is one of [those] ripple- effect type of things,” said Jamie Floer, president of the association’s Orlando chapter and a senior account executive at Miami-based Wragg & Casas Public Relations Inc.’s local office, according to the Business Journal.
