Hey Brods! Always glad to see more Bureau employees :)

The "PR manager" for the executive branch in US government (both muggle and magical) is the Press Secretary, which is currently in play. If she'd like to get the inside scoop, Campbell can always try her hand at being a Bureau correspondent for Wizarding World Today. Usually these correspondents are invited to a press briefing by the Press Secretary.

To get a feel for this position, you can take a look at this video of Josh Earnest, Obama's last press secretary when he was in office.

Feel free to ask any clarifying questions here or PM me on the site if you need any other help with US government!

Hiya Alex,

A few weeks ago I had asked for help with this matter and was told that a Public Relations Manager would fall under the Executive Branch and that they would report to the Press Secretary. You can look at the Discord help section for reference.

Would it be possible to clarify whether this is an actual position or not as I am getting conflicting answers?

Also Josh Earnest < C.J Cregg.

Thanks for getting back to me! I took a look in the Discord help channel and yes you are correct. The PR manager in the usual sense of the word is what the Press Secretary is for the American president. However, also in the Office of the Press Secretary is the Office of Communications. I would suggest that Campbell work as the Secretary of Magic's Communications Director. This position is very close to PR as well. You can read more about it here.

I think this position would work with what you have in mind for Campbell. She would work directly with the Secretary of Magic and make sure that his or her communications with the public are understood and delivered quickly and clearly. Let me know :)

Hi! I actually think I am gonna go with her just being 'unemployed'. She'll be hired by individuals to work as their public liason's.

I have gone ahead and added that to her sheet.

Hi Brods,

Sorry for the delay! After taking another look at your sheet, unfortunately we don't allow characters with such vital roles to be tagged as unemployed. Something like this would need to be related directly to an agency or to the Bureau.
We want to suggest the following job titles for Campbell:

• PR manager with a named specific individual that she is working for
• Communications Director for the Secretary of Magic as Alex suggested above

If you have any further questions about job titles, please direct them to the help desk on the forum.

Welcome to the Wizarding World, Campbell!

Campbell has a lot of obstacles to get through this year! You might like to begin your story in Country Mice, which takes place in Ontario, Canada, or by using one of the following thread ideas:

★ Her candidate needs a certain amount of funds raised in order to be eligible for the party debates. Campbell needs to work with Ava's campaign manager so they can be successful in getting her some screen time.

★ Campbell has received a mysterious letter at work. They've never contacted her at work — is her job in jeopardy now that whomever is circling closer?

Before you jump in...
