Joseph Scott graduated from the University of Leeds in 2017 with a degree in English Language and Literature. After attending a couple of appointments at the Careers Centre he applied for a role as PR Intern at Cream Consultancy, a listing he spotted on the Careers Centre vacancy website.
I am a PR Account Executive for a small PR, digital and communication agency called Cream Consultancy which operates out of an office in the Leeming Building on Vicar Lane, Leeds. I have been working in this role for six months in addition to my initial paid internship in August. My role has a lot of responsibilities and diverse tasks which aim to support the Directors and Account Manager in their work with clients. The role of Account Executive exercises many skills and I am developing my writing, communication and customer service on a daily basis.
My Path to PR
We’re constantly listening here in Student Careers, trying to make sure that what we offer to students is both what you want and what you need.
Recently we’ve had a lot of feedback about appointment availability from students. Every area seemed to be doing something different and some students were struggling to understand when to look for appointments and how frequently they had to look which was causing all sorts of confusion.
So we’ve changed it.
As of this Monday, 6th November, all of our appointments will be released either 1 or 2 weeks in advance, where every day at 12 noon a full day of new appointments will be released in the future for all appointment types.
What does this mean for our students?
It means that every day you will be able to log on to MyCareer and see new appointments becoming available. No longer will you have to wait a week for another chance at an appointment or have to balance different times for different types of appointments.
Hopefully, your life just got a little bit easier.
This has happened in line with the recent extension of our daily drop-in service which is now running from 1pm to 4pm every weekday, so now more than ever you should be able to get support as and when you need it.
Remember: new appointments every day, released at 12 noon.
You can use careers appointments for any career, work experience, or further study related enquiry. There are further details about support available to you on our website.
