Placement diaries: Making the most of it all

I am writing this post trying to work out where on earth the past four months have gone. It doesn’t feel like I’ve been here long but it’s crazy to think how much everything has changed in such a short space of time. Only four months ago I was at University finishing off my second year and now I work for one of the biggest beauty companies in the world. It’s sad that my time here is going so fast but I quite literally never want to leave this job or London…..can I stay forever?! The fact that I’m loving…

Placement diaries: being ‘the intern’ and my new love for skincare

It seems that I’ve given myself a long blog break recently (oops). It has just been a crazy few weeks and I don’t seem to have stopped! I’m on a mission to create new content and a new series though so just bear with me whilst I find my feet and where I want this blog to go. Before long it will be time for another placement update!

One week at Weber-Shandwick: Never stop learning

I have somehow managed to keep this fairly quiet so I have some news! This week, I was lucky enough to be offered an opportunity to spend the week with the Weber-Shandwick tech team in London. For those of you who don’t know, Weber-Shandwick is one of the world’s leading global Public Relations firms with offices all around the world.

End of Year 2: new beginnings

It has been crazy but I have finally come to the end of my second year at University – what a year. It has been crazy, busy and extremely difficult at times but one of the most rewarding years of education I think I have had. But what is next? I do have a plan – don’t fret! As some of you may or not be aware of, my degree is a sandwich degree and therefore, I will be spending a year working in my industry. Today, I move to London ready to start my placement year. I have been lucky enough to…
