The latest PR salary report… more bad news for technology and public affairs…

The “Official” Public Relations Salary & Bonus Report 2003 is out.  The biggest salary gainers over the past year were practitioners in finance and corporate (up 12%) followed by consumer (up 10%) while all us poor technology and public affairs practitioners took a 10% percent dive – no surprise there.

On the agency side, technology jobs are down 15%, with Business-to-Business a close runner-up with a reduction of 14.5%.

Interestingly there are 15.5% less agency senior vice presidents this year… and agency billing rates are down, on average, 8.7%.

The report retails for $199 and you can order it directly from Spring Associates.
