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…

In case you missed the Twitter Q&A with me last Tuesday, I thought I’d put some of the main questions here along with my answers plus a little more detail. No 140 character count here, that’s for sure. The Twitter chat was focused on blogging, university, placements, careers and personal…

Why You Should Blog For Your Future

Do you have a blog? If you don’t, I bet you know someone that does. A blog is a great way to grab an employer’s attention and to make yourself stand out amongst other candidates. When I went for placement interviews, most recruiters wanted to know about my blog more than…
