Jessamyn Katz of Heyman Associates Executive Search Discusses Hiring Trends in the Fields of Communications & Public Affairs
What can you do to differentiate yourself in today’s employment market? Which skills and qualities are most important to companies and hiring managers? How have past roles and public relations practices morphed to keep pace with today’s technology-driven communications?
You’ll discover this and more from Jessamyn Katz as she discusses the findings from a “Cross-Cultural Study of Leadership in Public Relations and Communications Management.” The study profiles a profession being reshaped by forces as current as digital networks and as timeless as generational divides. The new realities and consequences of the digital revolution underlie the four most important issues revealed in the study: managing the volume and velocity of information, the role of social media, improving measurement and dealing with fast-moving crises.
Vice President of Heyman Associates, Jessamyn Katz handles global searches in numerous specialties, including digital communications, media relations and strategic communications.
In addition to our regular presentation, the San Francisco Public Relations Round Table will be awarding scholarships to the two recipients of this year’s Philip N. McCombs Scholarship Fund program. For over 20 years, our scholarships have been helping promising future members of the public relations profession defray college costs. Any Bay Area university student studying public relations in an accredited program is eligible for consideration. The bulk of financial support for the scholarship comes from a silent auction held during the Round Table’s annual holiday party.
