[To comment: larry@larrylitwin.com]

CareerBuilder’s Debra Auerbach recently published “Talk your way into a new career. She says “Every job requires some degree of communication. And, for some jobs, communication is integrated into every aspect of the role. If you are a natural communicator — you are a strong public speaker, are good at storytelling and enjoy situations where you are constantly interacting with others — you should put those skills to use in your career.

Auerbach offers this example of an occupation for a strong communicator is:

Public Relations Manager (Average annual  pay = $108,260):

Communication is the backbone of a public relations manager’s job. You are responsible for representing your company or your client’s company and maintaining a positive public image. You communicate in the form of news releases you distribute about new products or initiatives, interviews you conduct as a company spokesperson or conversations you have with media outlets. You also communicate daily with clients or other agencies you employ to help execute campaigns. And as a manager, you are likely overseeing a team, which requires constant and clear communication.
