PUBLIC RELATIONS RESUME
A public relations resume should most important display a clearly defined objective of the candidate through the contents of the resume. It should be prepared in the modern format. The candidate should note that at the end of the resume ôReference available on request' should be avoided in a public relations resume. To substitute for this, the candidate may strongly highlight his past achievements and contributions in the field of public relations. Educational qualifications and trainings, special skills etc. should be systematically mentioned. Internship experience should preferably be possessed by the candidate and mentioned in the resume.
