PR & Media

Personal statement

I'm currently in my final year at Birmingham City University studying Media and Communications, specialising in PR. Haven experienced the workings of PR over the last three years through work experience and modules within university such as promotional culture. I have engaged in the planning of campaigns, pitching of ideas, analysis of potential crisis communication and general reputation management. Based on that I aim is to pursue a career in PR by working either in-house or within an agency as I learnt that this is the field within the media sector that I am best suited to.

My interest in food, beauty and fashion is the driving force of my PR career, therefore working in these sectors would be ideal. Hence currently, I am a PR practitioner for various clients which entails me managing social media accounts, working alongside creatives, organising events and searching for various publication opportunities.
Although it has been drawn to my attention that the media industry is not one of ease I believe my hard-working ethic and creative ability will enable me to successfully handle the workings of such an environment.
