  • Public Health Consultant
  • Senior Sales Representative – Hardware
  • Customer Relations Executive
  • Senior Admin and Facilities Executive
  • IT Project Manager
  • Technical Consultant
  • Estimator

The list of unrelated jobs goes on. Granted there are jobs related to the PR industry but, seriously, how hard is it to have a proper filtering system? 

This proves that the concept of PR is still lost on many and education is lacking. 

Idiot at Company X: Hello. Monster Gulf? We would like to advertise for an opening. The position is Secretary to CFO.
Monster Gulf: Sure. We will place it under Secretarial category.
Idiot at Company X: No. Put it under PR.
Monster Gulf: But this not a PR position.
Idiot at Company X: Never mind that.  My boss doesn't know what PR but he said it’s the buzz word and he requested this category.
Monster Gulf: That should be fine. Many people don’t know what PR is anyway so you’ll get away with it. Pleasure doing business with you.
