Read All About It! Jaydon Slade’s Work Experience Week At Different PR
“I have always found media and journalism fascinating as they were a part of everyday life and are vital for people to find out what is going on in the world around them.
“At the start of Year 10, my form tutor passed around work experience forms and told us to find a week’s work placement.
“I found this a difficult task as I never even thought up until that moment what I wanted to do as a vocation when I was older. This was a real eye opener for me. After a trip to my careers advisor he recommended a job to do with journalism or other media. After this, I asked my dad if he knew any places that were media-related. My dad recommended Different PR in Harrogate.
“On my first day I was given a desk and attended a client meeting with David and, following this, was asked to write up the minutes of the meeting. We then visited two schools – both clients – where David took photographs.
“Overall, I hope to gain experience in the media-industry and hope to find out if a job in the media will be the right career choice for me.
“I would like to thank David and Different PR for giving me the opportunity to trial a job in public and media relations, and to see if I should potentially undertake a job in this industry in the future.”
