Show me the money! The 10 best cities for top-paying PR jobs



The PulseWhen it comes to work, money means a lot – but it doesn’t mean everything. That’s why, in our quest to find the leading “money meccas” for public relations, we chose our top ten cities based not only on highest salaries, but also on the concentration of available jobs and quality of (city) life. The resulting list reveals PR-rich cities, where an exciting variety of opportunities is available to upwardly mobile communications professionals. You’ll discover what U.S. cities have a three-fold greater availability of PR jobs compared to the national average, and which cities have the highest concentration of “PR specialist” jobs. You’ll even learn more about the “2011 Eastern European Consultancy of the Year,” and the top “2011 PR Agency in Europe.” Grab your passport and work permit, and take a look at the 10 best cities for top-paying PR jobs.

Our research is based on the latest reported data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor to determine top salaries for PR professionals by key regions, and also on a variety of online job search resources. But don’t think the list is restricted to the U.S. – there are a few international surprises in here to help you keep your options open. Just click on the embedded SlideShare presentation below to read the full report.

So here they are, in no particular order, our list of the 10 best cities to find top-paying PR jobs.  If some of these hotspots are causing you to consider packing your bags and making a change right now, that’s great. Perhaps for some of you, our list simply reinforces that you made the right choice in where you currently practice PR:  Washington, D.C.; Toronto; Denver; Austin; Boston; London; New York City; San Francisco/San Jose/Sacramento/Los Angeles (The Golden State’s four-way tie); Chicago; and Sofia (Bulgaria).
