If you’ve read my blog before, you may well know that I have spent the last two weeks on a placement with Press Ahead (and if you don’t know, check out previous blog posts here and here). Sadly, my time with the team has come to an end, but I have had a great time and feel a million times more confident in what a career in PR will be like.
I’ve used all the skills that I have learnt in my university lectures, added to these a nice list of new ones and I have created a wealth of different resources. I’ve really enjoyed working on live projects with the team and I feel so grateful for the trust they put in me when assigning me tasks. I didn’t expect to get as many different experiences and have the chance to be so ‘hands-on’ – thank you PR team for trusting me with some interesting jobs and testing my skills! Top tip: When going into a placement, if there’s any tasks you want to try out – ask! I’m sure they will be more than happy to help with any requests, just as Press Ahead were.
