Further evidence of the rising strength of PR

Curious what the trends in media jobs are? (Obviously you are, or you wouldn’t be reading this..) Well, the awesome people at Mediabistro.com HQ analyzed our own job board and came up with some trends to watch in what we’re calling the first-ever Media Jobs Report.

Quick hits:

– There are more companies hiring for fewer positions. In 2007, the top 10 posters on mediabistro.com’s board accounted for 19 percent of all postings; in 2009, those same companies accounted for just 8 percent of listings.

– Though there were fewer jobs posted in 2009 than 2008, some categories gained market share. Those are:
– PR, with a 22% gain in market share
– Marketing, with an 18% gain
-And online/new media, with a 15% gain.
