Rebecca HoverEver wish you could job shadow someone in public relations? If so, I have a treat for you. Guy had the opportunity to interview Rebecca Hover, a public information officer for Snohomish County Sheriff in Washington state.

This woman has an interesting story and one you won't want to miss - especially if you have an interest in pursuing a career in public relations.

Rebecca Hover does what most people only see on shows like CSI: for years, she's been listening to the police scanner and dashing off to crime scenes, first as a reporter for The Everett Herald and now as the public information officer for the Snohomish County Sheriff in Washington state.

In her interview she discusses how she broke into this career field and what her typical day looks like. I found her interview interesting and full of information - her tips from the PR field is something you don't want to miss.
