So, yesterday in college, me and my best friend Lizzie volunteered to help film some informative videos for the college tutors all about the next academic year. Aside from finding out some big changes that will be taking place soon, we also had the chance to meet some of the heads of the college. In the industry I want to work in, networking is vital and it was great to practice early on.
After filming the Vice Principal, she asked what I wanted to do in the future, so with as much enthusiasm as usual, I told her about my passion for PR. Then, to my surprise and excitement, she told me she used to work in PR too! Obviously I saw this as a huge stepping stone to some work experience, but before I even had chance to ask she told me to get in touch with her via email and that she'd sort something out for me, yay!
Also, as my PR tutor has some contacts and experience within PR, he's helping me send out some emails this afternoon to a few companies in Manchester. Hopefully something good will come out of this and I'll be able to get some valuable experience before starting uni in September!
I'll keep you all updated on here and on my Twitter (click the link at the top of my page to get directed to my Twitter page!). I'm keeping my fingers crossed, wish me luck!
Thank you for reading :)
