With this knowledge, you can dig beneath the surface of any speech to examine its structure. You’ll also be able to determine why it convinces some people and not others.

  • Public relations specialists handle organizational functions, such as media, community, consumer, industry, and governmental relations; political campaigns; interest-group representation; conflict mediation; and employee and investor relations. Public relations specialists must understand the attitudes and concerns of community, consumer, employee, and public interest groups to establish and maintain cooperative relationships between them and representatives from print and broadcast journalism. Public relations specialists draft press releases and contact people in the media who might print or broadcast their material. Many radio or television special reports, newspaper stories, and magazine articles start at the desks of public relations specialists. Public relations specialists also arrange and conduct programs to maintain contact between organization representatives and the public.
