Life as a Digital PR Executive

It’s been a good month and a big bit since I last updated my lovely blog, but here I am!

Since finishing my last PR job for a charity just before Christmas, I ate my weight in pigs in blankets, celebrated New Years in Venice (it was AMAZING, honestly one of the best trips of my life) and started my new job as a Digital PR Executive at Aira, a digital marketing agency.

Yes, I may have disappeared off the blogger-sphere temporarily. But I did graduate with a First and get a PR job in the meantime…

Helllo there!!

Yes, it’s been forever. I do apologise. Ever a girl with an excuse or 10 on her hands, here is mine:

I was doing this…

PR Interview #12: Arianne Williams, Britain’s Best PR Student Blogger 2016

It’s official – my reign as Britain’s Best PR Student Blogger 2015 is over…but I couldn’t see a better PR student (very nearly graduate!) than Arianne Williams to be this year’s winner. I had a chat with her about her life as a PR student, her greatest achievements to date and her future as a PR pro…

PR in Education: are schools telling students if PR is the right career for them?

I mentioned a couple of blog posts back that I was planning this blog post. It’s something that’s kind of irked me for the last 3 years. I mean, it’s not, like, haunted my nightmares or anything, but it is something I often wondered about.

My school and careers advisers never told me that PR was a thing; I didn’t know it existed, I didn’t know what it was and I didn’t know that my A-Levels, talents and passions all tied in nicely to being a PR pro. We all know PR isn’t the most hugely studied course at uni, but how is it expected to be when 6th forms & colleges aren’t telling students PR is something they could consider studying?

PR Interview #11: Alisa Mcdonald, PR Student in Bangkok

Well, it’s certainly been a while since I last did a PR Interview hasn’t it?! This one is particularly exciting to me, as Alisa went to my secondary school but moved to Thailand and not so long ago she cropped up on my Facebook timeline as a PR student in Bangkok! So I, of course, had to find out more.

Read on to find out about studying PR in Bangkok from Alisa’s point of view…

The final push…reflecting on the last 3 years

In FIVE days time I will have finished uni forever!!

I still remember sitting in my room in halls at 1am re-vamping my blog, which was then wonderfulworldxoxo.wordpress.com (WHY????), and turning it into a PR blog. I remember getting my first ever First for an assignment. I remember winning my first blogging competition…I remember winning my second ever blogging competition! I remember being asked to hold my first WordPress Workshop. I remember being asked to contribute for PR Stack 2. I remember my taster day and having to design a campaign around donuts. I remember going back the following year to chat to potential students doing the donut campaign!

3 reasons why I’m looking forward to no longer being a student

I 100% in absolutely no way shape or form cannot at all believe that in 3 days time I will be starting my final…ever…term at Solent. When people say uni flies by, they are not lying – mark my words!

I have mixed feelings about finishing uni. Whilst I will miss living with friends, having the freedom of being able to do work from my bed and regular nights out, there are definitely things I’ve very much had enough of. This post is basically going to be about the things I won’t miss which, I know, sounds very whiny and negative but I’m more going for the optimistic-I’m-so-grown-up-now-and-ready-to-have-a-real-job approach (try and stick with me!)

Final year update!

So, it may seem like I have officially dropped off of the PR blogger-sphere but fear not, I am still here, it’s just I am currently buried to the neck in dissertation surveys, dissertation interviews, portfolios and client pitches. What the dreams of every 3rd year student are made of, eh?! I’ve made a little update to justify explain my quietness on Live Love Laugh PR, why my once upon a time frequent nights out are now very rare and to just give you a general update on life!
