Unrealistic deadlines and long hours have been cited by many PR professionals as the cause of stress on the job. A recent survey of pros by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations found more than half of those diagnosed with a mental health condition reported their work as a leading contributing factor.
Only a third of the more than 1,000 people surveyed said they viewed public relations as a
career for life. As part of our summer-long PR Summer School series, Robert sits down with Dr.
Amanda Holdsworth, APR, to discuss her research on PR burnout.
All this month on the Buzzer Beater we’ve been asking questions about AP Style. Today, we
wrap up the series with a player who has hosted her own PR podcast. And Jason tells us what
happens when tweets about a storm result in audience blowback.
