Is PR a Young Person’s Career?

In case you have clicked onto this blog post in a fit of rage, ready to go all ‘keyboard-warrior’ in my comments section, I can promise I am not saying that anyone is too old to work in PR – didn’t you note the title was a question? I am…

What It’s Really Like to Study PR

If you don’t already know, last week I graduated from university (not that I’ve plastered it all over social media or anything). It felt like a long time coming but also, those four years seemed to go by in a flash. Now that I have the piece of paper that…

What Even is PR in Today’s World?

I have just completed a four year degree in Business with Public Relations (PR). I spent one of those years working as a PR Assistant for a beauty company in London. Throughout those four years, I also interned with a lot of different agencies that specialised in PR and worked…

The UK’s Best PR Student Blogger 2019

A few weeks ago I was named the UK’s Best PR Student Blogger of 2019. You could say it was quite a way to top off my final year of university, but that wouldn’t cover it. I honestly can’t stress enough how life-changing this blog has been for me. And…

Do You Have to be an Extrovert to Work in PR?

Just this year, I’ve had a lot of people pair my social life with my degree choice. ‘Is it any wonder you work in PR, you’re always out partying!’ or ‘I can see why you study PR, you’re never housed!’ – but does a busy social life equate to a…

New Nike Campaign: Show Them What Crazy Can Do

Nike released their new ad campaign on Sunday, showing what ‘crazy’ sportswomen can achieve. As women, we’re often labelled ‘psychotic, emotional and over-dramatic,’ but are they just stereotypes? And can’t boys be all of those things but not given the same reputation? Instead, they are ‘passionate, driven and making a…
