‘Your life is amazing!’ ‘We’re all so jealous of you,’ ‘You’re living the dream!’ ‘I wish I had a job in PR,’ ‘What is it you do for your placement?’ ‘Do you get paid just to drink and meet celebrities?’ I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard…

A lot of people see what I post and think I’m having the life of Riley. They think ‘I could do her job. I could attend events, travel around London, drink prosecco and entertain influencers. Easy.’ But that’s not PR. None of those things are in my job description.

#PlacementYear: Month Five

Month five. Month FIVE. How am I almost halfway through this placement year?! On the bright side, they haven’t started looking for my replacement yet, so maybe this means I can stay???? Ugh, I wish. November was quite a short month at work as I spent a week in the Canary Islands…

#PlacementYear: Month Four

Hiiiiiiii! I know my blog has been a little quiet as of late, but I’ve been a little bit busy and Stranger Things series 2 came out and I have neglected the blog a little bit. Things are slowly getting back to normal, so I should also be getting back on…

#PlacementSeries: How to Write the Perfect Cover Letter
