If I had a mirror to show me how my life would be as it is now on the west coast, I would need help from my long time bestie, the California PR girl. To change things up here is a little insight from an account coordinator from SF who works in hospitality PR… and then of course you have your daily tidbits from your NYC corporate consumer PR gal (me!) To help you figure out which side of the PR girl spectrum you fall on I introduce to you East Coast PR vs. West Coast PR Chat… Let the games begin.
What do you wear to work?
East: I mostly wear business casual with classic NY edge. Nothing beats a pencil skirt with your gold watch, perfect wedges and your big girl work bag during the day that transforms in to your city bag during the night (which I am on a complete mission to buying soon!)
West: My usual outfit is dark jeans, a cute botton-down or t-shirt, ankle boots and arm swag. Sometimes if I’m feeling fancy, I’ll pile on some rings.
What does the average PR day entail?
East: Average is not in my vocabulary. The only thing that is routine about my daily PR work life is that I push snooze at least twice. Oh and the average day usually ends after 6:30 pm. Hustle and Bustle baby.
West: This is what my average day looks like: I make some coffee, check and respond to emails, jump on conference calls, send pitches, tweet, flip through magazines, attend client and internal meetings, and read relevant food-centric newsletters.
