What CareerCast had to say: "Public relations officers are responsible for creating and maintaining a positive image with the public for many companies and government agencies. They typically are responsible for giving presentations and making speeches, often in front of large crowds. This highly competitive field and tight deadlines keep stress at high levels for specialists. Some PR officers, also, are required to interact with potentially hostile members of the media."
