How much money do public relations professionals make?

Report as

The amount of money that Public Relations Professionals can make depends on a couple of things. It depends on where you live in the country and also the amount of experience you have. It can also depend on what industry you are in as well. If you are new at this and are going just starting out you can probably look at making anywhere from 35,000 to 49,000 a year. However, if you have good past experience, you can look at making anywhere from 115,000 to 350,000.

It really depends on how much experience you have, which industry you're in and where you live. Typically, PR for companies/brands directly pays more than agencies and tech is more lucrative than other verticals like consumer, travel etc. It really runs the gamut!

The amount of money that public relations professional can make, can be from $118,000 to $361,000 per year. This is based on the U.S. national average salary. It also depends on how much past experience that you have, and where you live. More popular cities are more prone to pay higher salaries.

That seems grossly inflated, where did you get the U.S. national salary?

Hi.... I felt the question was based on what a "professional" makes, not what a person makes that is just starting in a public relations office, maybe just answering a phone. I have a friend that works in public relations, but she's just a secretary, and she makes about $38,000 a year. I wouldn't think that the secretary there, could make more than a professional.

I received my information from cbsalary.com. They have charts there that are from salaryexpert.com that show the U.S. National Average Salary on thousands and thousands of jobs.

I didn't want to answer the question with "well it depends", because to me, that's not an answer.

If the information is incorrect, then someone has their stats mixed up on that website. ;)
