Why did you take an internship with WordStorm PR?
I took an internship here because I felt it was time to gain some hands on experience in the big, bad PR world. I wanted maximum exposure and with their diverse range of clients and expertise, there was clearly no better choice for me to achieve this, than here at WordStorm PR.
What’s been your favourite part about working in PR?
So far I’ve enjoyed sitting in on the meetings/brainstorming sessions. It’s been really fun to see the girls generate and bounce ideas off eachother and to watch the geniuses at work.
How do you think an internship will help with you getting a job when you finish your uni degree?
Well I think (and hope) an internship will help me in getting a job down the line, by teaching me those things that can’t be taught in a lecture or tutorial at University. I feel like an internship can provide me with a better understanding of the direction in PR that I will ultimately devote myself toward.
What’s the most valuable thing you’ve learnt since working at WordStorm PR?
The most valuable lesson I have taken away is to really pay close attention to every last detail and soak up all the information possible. Knowledge is power!
What’s your least favourite task as an intern?
So far everything seems pretty peachy! I guess I’m not overly fond of calling people who aren’t too pleased that I’ve called them in the first place!
What’s your favourite thing to do in Sydney?
This is a hard one. I LOVE my coffee and my breakfast, so my favourite thing to do is to go out to breakfast with friends and family – you can usually find me at The Grounds of Alexandria. Otherwise going to musical shows and the occasional musical festival!
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
My name is a palindrome (spelt the same backwards and forwards) – It’s pretty riveting stuff!
What is your fave social media platform?
Instagram! I am insta-obsessed and have been dubbed by those around me as the queen of #hashtags.
