A showcase of Leeds Beckett University's students in the School of Public Relations and Journalism
Author: Jessica Baxter
I am a second year student at Leeds Beckett University studying Public Relations. I previously completed GCSE'S and studied a level English Language as well as BTEC business studies and public services. My main area of PR that I have a strong interest in is the fashion and beauty industry, however I’m always open to working in any area PR especially travel as this is something else that i take an interest in. I previously had a taste for PR during my time at school when i helped to organise a fundraising day at my school as well as writing on my other blog which is specifically for fashion and beauty. I have developed my communication and writing skills as well as team working skills through these things. As well as this I am the course representative helping with my confidence and all of the previous skills. Studying PR has taught me a lot about the industry and what to expect when I start my career. For example I’ve learnt a lot about social medias and writing press releases; the main aspects of the profession. As I previously mentioned fashion and beauty are my main interests and the key fields I am hoping to go into when I graduate. However for the short term getting a placement in any industry would be the goal. I hope to work for a successful brand able to teach me all the skills I need to know.
