4 Truths about working in PR (They don't teach these in school)

Written by Rebekah Epstein

I think PR is one of the most misunderstood industries. Every time I tell someone that I am a publicist, they aren’t quite sure what my tasks entail. Yes, they have heard the word before, but it is almost like an ambiguous buzzword.

Hi Kitten, my name is Crosby.

I started PR Couture because I wanted a dedicated place online to share and connect with others working in fashion/lifestyle PR. And because frankly, I wasn’t getting that warm fuzzy feeling when I tried to connect with publicists for career insight or support.

Public relations is built on relationships, and it’s become my mission to ensure that through PR Couture, our programs, courses and community, you never feel invisible or without the expert-level advice and insight you need to excel in your career.
