PR Under Pressure: Ethical Best Practices & Career Pitfalls

Today, April and Laura are ringing in the new year with a one-on-one conversation about the ethical issues facing PR practitioners as we enter 2024. 

The conversation covers some familiar challenges that everyone in the PR industry faces  – from new graduates entering the industry to seasoned practitioners with decades of experience. Topics include:

  • navigating the high-pressure realities of the PR industry
  • avoiding common mistakes and insights as a young PR pro
  • what to do when you’re struggling to secure coverage for a client
  • evaluating ethical gray areas in PR 
  • how to avoid (or repair) PR relationships after you’ve made a misstep
