Work Placement: PR Management
Tasks given:

1. Set up an events calendar for the company’s cooperate department (as I was working in this department during my work experience)
2. Look for future possible clients
3. Write a blog on Florentijn Hofman’s yellow duck

What was something that happened that you were prepared for because you expected it to happen?
I expected to be given work that I didn’t completely understand the full concept under as neither of my parents or relatives work in the PR management firm and therefore I didn’t have a clear understanding of the field before my work experience. However, I got through this difficulty by either thinking hard about it or asking one of the people I was working with. They were very friendly and supportive and therefore I was given a clear explanation of my task immediately, which was extremely helpful as it enabled me to understand the task better.

What was something that happened that you were not prepared for because you had not expected it?
I expected to be extremely busy and stressed due to the workload however this was the complete opposite. I was well prepared for this as I’m used to it when I have a lot of homework to given in at school. However, over the week, I was very surprised with the amount of work I was given. This company didn’t seem to have a lot of work for me to do and therefore, during some periods of time, I didn’t have any work to do but luckily I had my work experience booklet for me to do which prevented me from getting bored. I believe the reasons for me not having enough work to do is because the department that I was working for were extremely busy during that week as they had many deadline to make.

Reflection
Through my work experience, I was given a great of experiencing the working life. This is not only through the week but also before my actual work experience as I had to write formal application letters as well as a resume and although I’ve had an
