I will not lie to you, many of the jobs are low paying but all can be highly rewarding. Of course there are the high profile high paying positions, consultants who manage to earn the big bucks (trust me, most are struggling), and of course those who study and innovate (an career in communication education and research).
Television, radio, Internet, interpersonal, group, corporate or business, education, consumer affairs, public affairs, government, the military...they all have jobs and even careers in communication.
Most of all, I have found my career to be fun and rewarding. I enjoy reporting, being on the air, hosting panels, going in and helping groups to communicate with each other with greater efficiency, serving on an elected service body, teaching and all of the areas of communication I have been honored to work or serve in.
If you choose a public role, you will meet interesting people, constantly learn new things, go interesting places and expand your horizons in ways you may not imagine going in.
There are very private roles, behind the scenes, that are equally rewarding.
