Most places want you to have some sort of previous experience working in PR. I would recommend interning at an agency or corporate for about 6 months to a year.

Would you be open to internship vs entry level? Entry level (Account Coordinator) is hard to get without a PR internship already but most good interns get hired to Account Coordinator after 6 months. Where are you located? I’d be happy to help you.

Yes, I would be open to it! I have some internship experience but I don’t shy away from doing more. I would prefer growing with a company. I’m currently based in Chicago!

Find a senior person doing what you may be interested in doing down the road at an agency you may want to work at and invite them out for coffee for advice

I am thinking about going for a lead SE at Salesforce. 6 months paternity(correct me If am wrong) sounds AMAZING and think SE job seems to match with my interest and career ambition.

I have admin and consulting background with a bit over 3 years of exp.

Questions
1. Is getting 150k base as a lead SE possible?
2. What do you all recommend I do to get that role? (certs, network etc)?

I’m a junior attorney, and my goal is to work in-house for a professional sports team (preferably an NBA, MLB or NFL team) or a record label, but of course these positions are highly-coveted. I started down the traditional path of working in biglaw (NYC) to receive the necessary training and experience while also trying to build relationships. However, biglaw really isn’t for me, and I’m exploring regional firms in Boston. Is it still possible to break into the sports/ent. industry? Any advice?
