As a student ambassador, I represent my university by leading campus tours, speaking to prospective students and the general public during open days and helping at events. I also work in the university’s enquiry centre answering phone calls and helping with administration tasks. From this role, I have proved that I am reliable and organised and developed my ability to balance work and studying.
From my work with Citypress PR in Manchester, I have learnt various PR skills including press release, feature article and blog writing along with research skills using Factiva. I developed my written and spoken communication skills and was praised for my writing style. Working in an office allowed me to work on networking and relationships with colleagues as well as prioritising certain tasks and organisation.
