Hi all (or none?), I’m excited to say that it’s now the ninth Friday of the first 2017 TBF Programme, but this also means there is only one week left - #sob
Joining the programme as 'the Intern' was an odd experience at first, as I sit between the trainees and the Head of Programmes in the hierarchy. There was a strange pull between trying to build a real friendship with everyone, and sometimes being in a position of authority. Now that the programme has progressed things are much easier and feel more natural; the trainees have their own sweet little family, and when we go on visits I feel like a schoolteacher herding her pupils on and off the tube, ha-ha!
What are we all going on to do when the programme comes to a close? We hope to all be quickly installed in exciting, fast paced and ever evolving PR/Comms roles in a variety of disciplines. Having visited a plethora of agencies and in-house teams of all shapes and sizes we are in a much better position to decide what we want and where we want to be. I am searching for a social media role with some client facing capacity (because I love people) in a young, open and friendly agency. Others on the programme, as this rotation is sponsored by FTI, are searching for more corporate, financial positions. So if you’re in PR/Comms and ‘have the power’ to do these things, please call/email the foundation and ask for the CVs of the latest bunch. They refuse to disappoint!... S
