I have graduated with a degree in
I was studying for the degree, Iengaged in lots of writing,
presentations both in seminar and workshop groups and having to submit my
course work on or before the deadline date given.I would like to develop more of my writing,
organisational and communication skills in the public relations sector.
While studying for the degree, I had the
opportunity of writing short stories weekly to receive feedback from my read
out short stories to my then course colleagues and my tutor.Presentations on different topics using the
PowerPoint were given by me alongside my course colleagues assigned to the
group I was in at the time.
Whilst studying at the university, one
of the major objectives was working in a group or teams.I did work in groups and teams a lot.Part of it was giving presentations on different
topics using the multimedia to showcase and advertise the visual topics chosen,
making it relevant to our audience.I would
want to gain a wider experience on what I have studied at the university which
is offered in the public relations industry.
Team work is essential.
I hope to use my transferable skills,
and develop my professional skills to achieve fulfilment and success in all
aspects of my life and career.

Having worked as an Avon representative
on skin care and direct marketing.I did
come in contact with different people from all walks of life and backgrounds,
making for an interesting work to do. Communication skills are vital in public

Being able to learn about public relations and/or corporate communications
using the afore-mentioned is good for me.Public relations are about having a good reputation with the public.
Public relations and corporate
communications signify service to the public in varying forms and manners in
which I desire to become a part of, thereby undergoing the training required
for them.My plan is to be of (positive)
benefit to the organisation that would train m in the public relations and or
corporate communications sector.If they
could identify my strengths in the skills that I have, then it would enable me
work effectively in the particular area, be it in the research backgrounds,
photography, internet and web, video and audio, feedback communication, to
mention but a few.
I desire to become adept in understanding
how brands and products gain wider publicity working in the public relations and
or corporate communications.
I would equally desire to have a career

to plan effectively on how to produce the plan and building a functioning web
The problem was about brainstorming and
coming up with specific ideas on how to build the web site also researching the
topic “life” which the website is
based upon.Firstly, we introduced
ourselves, that is, the members of the team or group to each other.We equally collected our e-mail addresses and
telephone and mobile numbers enabling us to keep in touch while communicating
based on our brainstorming, ideas, suggestions, comments, should be a case of
where urgent face to face meeting is required and it could not be possible to
In the process of following the plan
that we all agreed upon, we discovered that the plan worked effectively and the
times we equally met face-to-face, it was discovered that we painstakingly
followed the worked out plan, enabling us build a successful website.
