Happy work-iversary to me: looking back at my first year in PR

Answering the difficult questions: Nike’s latest ad – bold or poor?

And in fear of sounding a bit like a motivationalist, I'm going to say things in simpler terms. I think that Nike's 'Just Do It' ad… Continue reading Answering the difficult questions: Nike’s latest ad – bold or poor?

The oh-so trivial problems of your everyday copywriter

Though i'm technically a 'digital PR executive'; copywriting has been - and still is - a big part of my job. When I started interning at Tecmark last year, I began with writing blogs and articles for some of their smaller clients.

So i've been dabbling in and out of PR employment for the last year and a half now. I've interned at various agencies up and down the UK, including at Tecmark where I currently work.

So, what’s it really like writing a dissertation?

It seems like an age ago now since I was a third year student. (It was actually no longer than 3 months ago, but that's what working full time does to you!)
