I saw this piece about the job of a newspaper reporter now being ranked as the second worst career in the nation:
This is something for PR peeps to keep in mind as they pitch. We need to take it easy on those overwrought reporters. Yes, sure, sometimes we think we have a difficult time getting a story in front of them, but if your job was viewed as worse than these, you’d know you have it rough:
- Appliance repair person (#73).
- Dishwasher (#124).
- Sewage plant operator (#141)
And, my favorite, Public Relations Executive, ranked #140. Guess it could be worse–right, reporters?!
