Career Insights From Young Professionals
August 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Taking that first step from student to practitioner can feel pretty scary.
Join us on the 09th of August for a FREE evening of tips, advice, and insights from established young public relations professionals. (Plus, enjoy a free drink on us!) You will gain valuable insight into what you can expect from an early public relations career, and an understanding of what you can do now to prepare for the future.
Come along with plenty of questions at the ready, and our fantastic panel will provide the answers you need to feel confident and excited for your entrance into the public relations scene. We look forward to seeing you there!
I am a recent graduate from Auckland University of Technology. I completed a Bachelor of Communication Studies, majoring in journalism and a minor in public relations.’ Hayley is currently working as a Communications Coordinater at AA New Zealand.
A creative, driven and forward-thinking communications professional with experience across corporate affairs, financial communication, sustainability, stakeholder engagement, behaviour change and marketing communication.
‘I’m an experienced PR Consultant with a proven ability to work effectively under pressure, and produce engaging content across multiple platforms. I have developed strong organisational skills through my experience as a news producer of live radio programs on national and local levels for several years. With a background in journalism, interviewing and communication, I possess a wide range of skills including writing, editing and producing digital, visual and print content.’ Harry is currently working as a senior account executive at Wright Communications.
Growing up in the digital age means I’ve always been tuned in to everything new, trendy, and emerging in our cultural landscape. Naysayers may lump me in with the category of ‘lazy millennials glued to their phones’, and while I could definitely stand to reduce my screen time, it’s also given me a front seat view of incredible progress unfolding on things I’m passionate about, (e.g. social issues, mental health, sustainability, self-empowerment, youth issues) made possible by good, purpose-driven, honest communications.
Although I’m in the very early stages of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to dabble in government relations, corporate social responsibility, and social marketing across corporate, agency, and non-profit, and every day I’m excited to see where this dynamic and creative industry takes me. I’m currently based in Auckland, New Zealand, doing comms for a mental health charity and hopefully doing my bit to leave a positive impact on the world. Ultimately, I’d like to relocate abroad and develop my skillset in a PR agency focused on social change.
