A showcase of Leeds Beckett University's students in the School of Public Relations and Journalism
Author: Michal Borth
I am a highly self-motivated individual with experience at working in a fast paced environment, all while studying and achieving high marks at the university. I can effectively work in a dynamic team and adjust to strict deadlines and demanding tasks. I am currently a second-year PR with Journalism student at Leeds Beckett University.
Apart from my studies, I am currently working in the retail business, where efficient team work, as well as perfect communication skills are essential in the constantly changing, fast paced environment. The current position has also allowed me to be familiar with international corporate rules of communication and employment, which can be applied to placements and work in the PR industry.
As a second-year student of PR with Journalism I have managed to connect both parts of the degree and earn at least a first class mark in all of the current modules. The experience in journalism has given me ability to write features, data reports, reviews, and other pieces of a very high quality.
I have also done a placement at a Polish-based company as a Press Office Intern. This position has provided me with relevant experience regarding the use of digital and social media, producing reports and writing sample press releases in various languages, including English and Polish.
I consider myself as an international person. I have travelled extensively, and have lived and worked in different countries – Poland, United Kingdom, and Switzerland. Because of that, I consider myself as an international individual, who is open to ideas extending the location I currently live in.
My ultimate career goal is to work in Public Relations industry which is connected to the Music and Entertainment, as these are the fields I am most interested in – in my professional work, and as my hobby.
