Public Relations & Grey’s Anatomy

Warning: This is not a very serious post. Usually I’m a pretty serious person, but I wanted to write something a little off the wall. I know a lot of girls (and reluctant guys) who watch Grey’s Anatomy each week. I’ll admit. I’m a fan of the show. So….

Recently, I wondered what the characters might be like if they worked in PR. As a PR pro, what Grey’s character are you?

Meredith: Sometimes you get involved in questionable relationships. Maybe it’s not with your boss. Maybe you’re accepting free stuff and not disclosing that when you post the reviews on your blog.

Cristina: You are the hardcore PR professional. You live for PR. It’s your dream to work at a global PR agency and handle a huge crisis for a big-name client. You’re very competitive and a perfectionist.

George: You are the professional who is taken for granted. You might not be the greatest writer or planner, but the clients love you.

Izzie: You are the rule breaker. Social media policies? Sometimes they have to be broken to get things done.

Dr. Bailey: You’re the boss. You’re a tough mentor, but young professionals can learn a lot from you.

So if you prefer my more serious side, don’t worry. It’ll be back with my next post.
