How would you explain to your parents what public relations is? Provide an example to help them understand.
I don’t think I would have to explain what public relations is to either of my parents as their jobs involve public relations everyday. I can use eithier of my parents jobs, but I will use my mother’s job for as an example here. She is a project manager for a large company and has to continuously mediate between everyone on her team as well as with her bosses and other people within the company. A definition I found states that public relations in the profession of maintaining a companies publics such as their employees and customers. This is definition is dead on for what my mother does. To sum her job up with one sentences I would say… She mediates relationships between herself, other employees as well as her customers to ensure that customer experiences a smooth transition into the companies system. So in this case I think my parents both can understand public relations given the fact that I can use either of them as examples.
