Lasswade High School pupil Hayden Stewart gets a taste of the PR world with Scottish PR agency
When my highschool gave me an opportunity to find myself some work experience for a week, I knew Holyrood PR was the best option for me to go for.
On my first day of work experience, I was very looking forward to meeting the team and looking forward to what tasks they were getting me to do.
The week before, I didn’t have a very good understanding of what a PR company does or what work is within the industry.
I was a bit nervous of meeting the team but once I got settled there was nothing to be nervous about.
Once I arrived, I was welcomed very pleasantly the entire team was so welcoming and made me feel that this was a safe place for work.
The team was so helpful throughout the week keeping me doing tasks and helping me get a full understanding of what work I had to do.
The team was very organized and had a planned schedule of what I had to do each day and what work needed to be done.
I worked with Microsoft Start which I am not very used to, as at school I work with Google, but the team assured me of how it works step by step helping me get a full understanding of what Microsoft is all about.
The reason why I went to Holyrood PR was to get a full understanding between the difference of Journalism and working for a PR company. As my week has finished, I have got a fully understanding of the differences thanks to the amazing team.
I much enjoyed the tasks that I received from the team and writing my schedule out every day as I am a very organized person.
As I am only 15, I have lots of time to decide whether PR is the right work for me or if I would rather go into the Journalism side of work.
The week has gone so fast, and I have enjoyed every part of it.
I am so thankful for the fantastic week of work experience, and to the brilliant Holyrood PR team for making it such a fun, exciting week.
I hope to see the Holyrood PR team again in the future.
