Technology in Careers

Living in the 21st century, there is only a small proportion of jobs and careers that do not use some type of technology on a day to day basis. Technology has completely transformed advertising from what it once was and now every brand connects with consumers over social media.


I began to do some job searching, using, to find something in my field of Advertising and Public Relations. Almost every job I looked at included some kind of necessary technological skills for employment. Although my main goal is to work at an Advertising Agency as an Account or Strategic Planner, I broadened my search to advertising careers that were enticing to me. Below are five job listings in the advertising field where I believe I most belong:

  1. All of the companies seem great!! A lot of the positions you chose have to do with account management. When you where searching for jobs was “account” your key word? Whats your major? As a PR major I would have never thought to look into some of the job titles you choose but now it has me interested in a new part of PR that i may have not considered.
