Fundraising, fundraising and more fundraising. If fundraising doesn't
sound like your cup of tea then nonprofit work may not be for you. However
nonprofit work does afford you a great deal more creativity and control
over your projects as well as a chance to do some good.
Working for a single corporation allows you to develop a specialty in
one area. For instance, if you worked in the public relations department
of the Shell Corporation you would gain an extensive amount of knowledge
about industrial public relations. This knowledge would, in turn, make
you more marketable for a position at another similar corporation down
the line. Although, if you choose to go into another area, you may have
to learn a whole new set of skills. The majority of public relations workers
work within corporations.
Agency work provides experience in many areas. You will be dealing with
any number of clients and projects at a time. It can be overwhelming,
but if variety and a fast past are what you are looking for, then an agency
might be for you. If you ever chose to move on from agency work, your
options of where to go next are nearly limitless, because of your experience.
However, your experience will probably be fairly basic in many areas,
always having worked with so many types of companies.
