Career Opportunities for Public Relations Students

Most large companies offer thousands of jobs in hundreds of locations and PepsiCo is no different. If you are interested in a job with this successful company they offer an extremely user friendly website. The first thing you will notice about PepsiCo’s Career Center is they have multiple categories that help narrow your search. Experienced candidates have a different career search than graduate and undergraduateate students. This ensures that no one applies for a job they are not interested in. Another option is to search hourly or commissioned sales jobs.

Because I am an undergraduate student, I would click on the apappropriate link and many options appear. You can get information about career fairs or conferences in your are or hear actual testimonials from recently graduated employees. PepsiCo also provides helpful tips to help you prepare for the interviewing process. If you are interested in applying for a position just click job search. Here you can look at all the job positions that need to be filled.

PepsiCo and its subsidiaries offer a lot of job opportunities, but do not have a separate public relations department. Instead we fall under the communications/public affairs category, but currently their are no job openings. But some other positions are available where we can use our skills and knowledge. For example, PepsiCo’s marketing department has an open position for a marketing assistant and a marketing intern. A pr practitioner also might be happy in their human resources department.
