I came across a post on the blog PRos in Training by Kelli Matthews about joining the PR industry without even having a PR degree. I know that a lot of people graduate college and have a profession that has nothing to do with their major, however should a PR professor be giving helpful hints to non- PR majors about getting in to the PR industry and developing a career. With the economy as bad as it is and with PR job opportunities shrinking every day why are we trying to help people with no education in this industry get a job. I think we should be focused on helping people within the industry or people that have be studying this industry for a while. Or is this a good thing that the PR profession to begin to open the doors for people will all different educational backgrounds.
