As some of you may or may not know, I officially secured my summer internship last week and I couldn’t be more eager to start.
It was such a strange way of happening that it somehow doesn’t seem real but it is and I could scream.
I received an email from a girl at a Fashion PR agency (The Raw Institute – check them out, they have cool brands) saying that she had been passed my CV from a brand that she manages. I had applied to the brand for an internship but they obviously thought it would be better for me to get experience within the agency and therefore passed along my CV. I then organised an interview, spoke a bit about myself, what the internship entails and was offered it there and then.
It is absolutely perfect for me. I am going to be working within PR, social media, press releases, press days, fashion week and much more. It will give me a real chance to get stuck in and work towards gaining the vital skills that are needed for the future.
I start on Tuesday (15th) and I am scared, nervous, apprehensive, slightly clueless and excited.
But most of all, I am ready.
I feel that it is exactly the thing I need right now to start me off and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.
I have been applying for, what seems like, millions of work placements and I was beginning to think that I would never find anything. Nevertheless, I still stuck at it and thought that it would all work out just fine and something would come along. And how right I was. This proves that perseverance is key. Stick at it, believe in yourself and it will all fall into place.
Oh, and it’s in Shoreditch. #perfect
