I was sitting here thinking about the 3 pieces of work I’ve got left of this year (whilst thinking about how all I want to do is be a size 8 lying on the beach in Bora Bora with the remaining members of One Direction) and it hit me that I ONLY have 3 pieces of work until I’m no longer a 2nd year. Like, I won’t even be able to pretend to be a fresher anymore. So, I decided to come up with a few things that I’ve learned over the last 2 years and what I want to get out of this summer before I return to uni a fully grown up and mature 3rd year student…probs.
When my parents said that whilst we were on a city break in Dublin we would be visiting the Guinness Storehouse, I thought it would purely involve Guinness tasting (not on my behalf, even the smell makes me gag!) but to my surprise there was a whole floor dedicated to the Advertising/Promotional side of the Guinness brand, which was, I must say, a tad different to the floor dedicated to tasting and pouring pints.
I’ll be honest with you, when I applied to university to study PR & Communications, I didn’t really know what I was going to be doing, but the UCAS deadline (along with my parents) was nagging away at me. Luckily, I soon found I loved PR. But just in case that doesn’t happen in your case, I’ve come up with 5 reasons that PR may not be the career for you.
