  38. Communications Directors oversee communications within a company or organization. They also represent their employer to the public. The job typically requires a bachelor's degree in an area of business or communications as well as strong writing and public speaking skills. Work experience in communications, journalism or public relations is another common requirement. • The role of the Public Information Office is to coordinate communications for governmental entities (city, county, school district, state government and police/fire departments) and provide information to the media and public as required by law. A Public Information Office operates differently from public relations departments in that marketing plays a more limited role. PIO Overview http://www.stmarysmd.com/pio/
