Why I chose PR?
I chose to study PR because I had been told multiple times that it was the perfect job for me! After looking into what Public Relations entailed I happened to agree, as I have a vivid imagination as well as a hard working ethic.
Before deciding that Public Relations was the course I was going to follow I wanted to have some real proof that it was something that interested me, as well as something that was a possibility for me. I applied to Global records to do a week’s work experience at Capital Radio; working in the PR department, basically being the Head of PR’s shadow as well as helping to organise the huge event which is the Jingle Bell Ball at the o2 arena. This concert was about flying thirty musicians over to perform over two nights. Obviously, the arrangements that go into a concert like this were over my head, but the hard work and organisation that I was working amongst made me want to want to learn more about the business.
Due to me being a stickler for time and my organisation, is something of conversation amongst my friends, I know that these qualities both bode well for a job within the PR world. I’m not foolish enough not to know how competitive this industry is and things like organisation and good time keeping is something that many applying for a job in PR could also have, but I believe I can set myself apart from these as I have the imagination and creative ideas to go with these qualities.
Setting this aside, I believe that it is my verbal communication that sets me aside from others in the industry. Not only am I able to talk for England, have I always been good at answering any question faced with and being able to put a spin on it, whilst still telling the truth. My father has told me repeatedly that this is going to be my deal breaker in interviews!
Ever since I was young I had never had a real job that I wanted to do, my brother had said a fireman, yet I had nothing and up until the age of seventeen I still didn’t know, so this made choosing my A-Levels a lot more difficult as I didn’t know which ones would suit my university degree most. In the end I just stuck to what I was good at; English. Upon reflection I am glad that I didn’t ever have a real desire for a certain vocation as I never would have come across Public Relations.
I wanted to study Public Relations as I have a certain set of skills which in my opinion suit the job perfectly. I am very determined in things that I want to achieve and I make this University course no exception. Watch this space…
