Being in G2PR and also comparing my internship period with my fellow classmates, I realized in this communication industry, and if you choose to be placed in an agency instead of an in house department, your work scope is far and wide because you have a lot of clients to handle on a daily basis. As soon as I started my internship, the GM briefed me and put me under a supervisor. So, whatever my supervisor's clients were, those were my clients too. They let me try every bit of the PR world, from writing press releases, to preparing media kits, to calling so many journalists, crafting and sending out invites to the press for our events, to doing media monitoring for 4 clients every morning, calculating ROI and cutting those newspaper clippings and scanning them. I did it all! The fun events bit, and the nerve wrecking situation of ensuring that my press releases are good enough to picked up by the journalists.What did you learn?
The internship exceeded my expectations. I was not prepared for the real PR world, but by interning here I surely did. It showed me that doing Public Relations isn't all fun events and getting all the perks. It's hard work, squeezing your brain juices for a nice, well crafted press release etc. I gained a lot of skills I know some of my fellow class mates did not learn during their internship period.Was your supervisor supportive?
My mentor actively involved me and ensured I gained from the internship. My supervisor was one of the key person in the department, he was busy most of the time but he never failed to include me in. I liked the fact that I was not treated like an intern by him. He gave me a lot of credit for the tasks that I have little to do with or a lot to do with. He just kept supporting me.What could be improved? What could you have done better?
I probably would want more help around, just to better myself. Otherwise, everything was great.Advice for future interns?
It is so rewarding for whoever wants to get the idea of what Public Relations practitioners are all about. They give you opportunity to do everything. Its a lot of work but at the end of the day you've learned so much, it's rewarding.
