As it’s my last blog post for Harvey & Hugo (Sarah speaking here) I thought I would list the most significant things I’ve learnt whilst working for a PR agency.
1. Your to-do list is your new best friend
Seriously though, organisation is so important!
2. It’s not as glamorous as Samantha from Sex and the City makes out
It may not be cosmopolitans at the opening of a new snazzy celebrity hot spot, but it’s still so much fun!
3. Checking your emails all day every day will annoy your boyfriend
This was actually taken on Valentine’s Day… Putting clients first is an understatement!
4. You’ll get a slight addiction to coffee
Working in a PR agency means you’re on the go the minute you step into the office. Coffee will get you through!
5. A good team is everything
You’re nothing without good people around you. You will need support and you will need to be there for your teammates. You might just become the best of friends…
For me, I thrive on being productive and busy, so working for a PR agency was such a fantastic experience. It makes you discover a work ethic you never knew you had.
For anyone who is looking to take a jump into PR, try agency work – the pace is riveting!
