My Week at Bourjois

If you follow me on Twitter, then you may know by now that last week I did some work experience at the make-up brand, Bourjois. I honestly feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to work at one of my favourite brands, and I wanted to share it with all of you. Like my last work experience post, I've split it into a few key questions.

How did you go about getting this work experience?
I met one of the lovely PR ladies at a Company magazine event and then emailed her a couple of months later to see if they had any vacancies. I was pretty shocked, but very pleased, when they said yes!

Daily tasks?
Generally, I helped take care of their Instagram, put together presentations on various topics, organise send outs and just other basic tasks that needed doing.

Did you enjoy it, and was it worth doing?
100%! It was definitely my favourite work experience that I've done - the people were so nice, it was such a lovely environment to be in and as it was at one of my favourite make-up brands, it just made it all even better. It's honestly left me with no doubts about wanting to work in PR!

Is it worth doing work experience before university?
For me, yes! I think with something like PR, they really look more at the experience you've had than your grades and so it's important to have something to talk about. And also, doing work experience definitely helps you find out whether you actually like that particular industry, as it can be hard to decide to study something completely new when you've never had any experience in it.

Hopefully this post helped some of you who are trying to find work experience, or if you're not and you enjoyed it anyway, then that's great too! Let me know if you've done anything similar in the comments.
