Life of an Intern

KHTRA intern, Kieran Harris, discusses his experience of interning at our award-winning agency.

“Wait, it’s been three months already!?,” I said when I was asked to write a blog about my first 12 weeks at The Right Agency. The last three months had sped by as I spent my days preparing social media content, pitching stories to journalists and writing press releases, all for the agency’s diverse portfolio of B2B clients. Each week felt like a new challenge and the experience helped reaffirm that a career in PR was something I certainly hoped to pursue.

I hadn’t always had my sights set on a career in PR, as I previously studied music at The University of Derby. While working as an intern for music magazine, Exposed, I met many PR people and envied how exciting and dynamic their jobs appeared. When my internship ended, I decided to study an MA in Public Relations at Leeds Beckett.

Having really enjoyed my first semester I needed some hands-on experience and I secured an internship at The Right Agency.

From day one, I have been heavily involved in a range of tasks, from writing new product press releases and drafting social media content to creating media lists. Having mainly worked with consumer brands in the past, it was a challenge for me to adapt my writing to a style that suited the specialist trade media that The Right Agency works with, but the internship is helping me develop.

Three months on, I feel much more confident as a writer and a communicator. Each week is varied and I always receive constructive feedback, which has helped to aid my progression. My internship has given me first-hand experience of how dynamic and rewarding a career in PR really can be.
