A fond farewell

Meaghan signs off.

Sadly, the time has come to say farewell. I am finishing up my internship at You Say, I Say, We Say communications agency. With the help of Liz Gadd (The Represent Network) I was able to work with a company with a great reputation which I was really keen to work for!

Some people don’t think an internship will be worth their while, maybe they have just heard too many stories of interns becoming the resident coffee maker and chief filer! For me coming to work with the team at You Say has been a great experience allowing me to develop while receiving an insight into the real working world. 

Completing my internship at You Say, I Say, We Say, allowed me to feel confident going into any workplace. Alongside this I was given the opportunity to become involved in the real ins and outs of a business, allowing me a realistic insight into the world of public relations and communication.

While I worked at You Say I got involved in a variety of tasks. I am now a wizard at Microsoft Excel, I have improved on my writing skills by getting involved in press releases, gained experience ringing clients and developed my researching skills. This are just a few of the things that I learnt along the way!

There is a wealth of advice I would give someone about to start an internship, although I think two top tips will be easier to remember! Firstly, be organised, this will ensure that you know how much time you need to dedicate to each task and avoid anything being missed. Secondly, don’t be afraid to ask questions! Doing an internship is all about learning, asking questions when you’re not sure is a major part of that.

On an end note I would like to thank Emma Heesom, the founder of You Say, I Say, We Say for letting me join her team. Being her intern has been a great experience and has given me skills that will be invaluable in my future career.
