As a new professional, knowledge and skills specific to your first five years working in public relations help build your career. But at such a crucial point in your professional development, there can be a large gap in the support that each new pro needs.
 
For example, a recent college graduate is often practicing interviews and settling into their first full-time position. Meanwhile, new pros in their third, fourth or fifth year of work are beginning to manage staff, negotiate salary raises or promotions, and accept positions at new companies.

Needless to say, a new pro starting out in their career and a new pro continuing to grow strategically have different professional development needs. As career advice for new pros often focuses on the workplace transition after college, I’d like to share a few options for new pros settling into their careers who want to continue to grow.
