Having just completed a two week placement a PUNK PR, it’s safe to say I’ve found my calling. I can’t quite put my finger on it -maybe it’s the fact that no two days are the same, maybe it’s because I’ve been working on really exciting clients, or maybe it’s just that Helen and Lee are pretty damn cool people who have eased me in.
I say eased me in, but on my first day I took part in a brainstorming session for a new business pitch – talk about throwing me in at the deep end! Still, it allowed me to hit the ground running and show them what I’m made of.
Having studied television at university I was slightly concerned that a career in PR might have made the last three years seem a bit of a waste, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. At PUNK I’ve been working in a highly creative environment and I’ve been able to put into practice all the things I learnt about merging online and offline content, and the importance of social media, as well as pulling out the video camera on a couple of occasions too!
