Holly Sugarman – What do I do next?
After finishing our exams we were asked at school to consider what we aspired to do or be, really sit and ponder on what is next, and then, look for a placement to acquire new skills or experiences of an actual 9-5 job.
Although many students have always known what career they want pursue, course they want to take and A-level options required, for me there was an overwhelming variety of further education and career paths out there- a giant and confusing world which I had no idea where to start in.
Different, for me provides the prospect of an individual experience where I am excited to meet clients and learn more of the creative and subjective work of a PR company. English and more broadly communication and people skills are attributes I am interested in, and this week I am hoping these will grow as the week progresses; a first step into the working environment.
Only one day in, I have researched and simultaneously met a client, and the valuable lessons of communication, punctuality and originality are starting to become more distinct. I’m looking forward to what is next!
