One of the things I like about public relations is that you get to do a little something different every day.
Something else I like is that, every once in a while, you get to enjoy some job perks. For example, I got to attend (and bring my husband and parents) my first horse race when a client gave me some unused tickets.
Here is the latest “job perk”: During a conference call with a client this morning, the client invited my boss and me to dinner and then the company’s VIP suite at the Toyota Center tonight to see the Britney Spears concert. There were two extra tickets available, and he thought that, as their PR firm, seeing the VIP suite first-hand would give us some good promotion ideas for the future.
I didn’t argue.
Not that I am a Britney Spears fan in the least, but I have never been a big concert, and as long as I’m sitting down on a comfortable couch and chatting it up with my boss and unusually friendly and down-to-earth clients, I think I’ll make it through the evening 🙂
