I'm Karlie, a (soon to be) graduate, currently studying BA Hons Media and Communications at Birmingham City University, specialising in Public Relations.
Over the past three years, the course has enabled me to explore many different areas within the media and PR, both practical and theoretical. I've designed and pitched campaign proposals for companies such as All Bar One and Warwick Castle, written press releases, created social media schedules and creative content. I have also taken a theoretical interest in fandoms and promotional culture.
Alongside my degree, I've completed various work experience placements that have allowed me to put the skills and knowledge from my degree into practice, as well as develop my passion and creativity within PR. I've gained experience both in house and agency, allowing me to broaden my strengths and gain a real insight into the day to day life of a PR professional. I've worked with clients such as Cadbury World, The Ivy Temple Row, and Heals, developing my communication skills, team working abilities, and PR skills. These experiences have shaped me as a student and a PR professional and helped me realise that I thrive in a fast-paced environment, where no two days are the same.
I'm now looking to take my knowledge and creativity and to secure and job within PR and Communications.
