The Choices Planner assessment showed Public Relations as a suitable career option for me. I was very pleased because Public Relations is my major. For this job extensive writing tasks, creativity, good listening skills, and good relationships with people are all necessary to succeed. To learn more about this job I interviewed Skip Powers, our Sports Information Director for football, soccer, and softball at Alabama. I am very interested in his job because I like to write and I love sports and meeting people. After the interview with Skp Powers, I definitely have a better understanding of what his job is all about. If I were to be a Sports Information Director at a top university, I have to start working for this now through internships, good grades, and learning the writing skills required. I recognize that this job is not always fun though. Long hours and tough schedules may inhibit my ability to balance family life and a career. I am still really interested in this job and am planning to intern with Skip next fall during football season.
