Word is that there's currently a personnel search being conducted for a really bad publicist. The singer Britney Spears is looking for a PR rep that ironically can put a bit of a damper on all the unwarranted attention she's gotten lately.
After parting ways with her former publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnik, Britney's been taking counsel from any-ink-is-good-ink total-media-whore Paris Hilton; And boy oh boy is she ever getting the press!! However, PR experts agree, maybe just a little too much exposure.
The right candidate will have BA in Public Relations and have worked in a major PR firm at a senior level. Strong account management skills are required. Must be facile with blogging and podcasting. PRSA accreditation and Turrets Syndrome a plus.
God, I cannot count how many people I'd personally recommend for that job. Imagine just how many resumes she'll get.
I hear Tom Cruise's sister's application is at the top of the pile - I mean she's just done a fantastic job with her brother! She has that whole "let the client be themselves no matter how ridiculous it makes them look" mentality that i think would jive with britney's freewheeling lifestyle. After all - messaging and fashion consultants are overrated.
