“I think I really got a feel for what PR was like and got to do a range of things across their corporate and financial services sides of the business and so didn’t feel restricted to just one bit. I did some copywriting, wrote social media posts, pitched stories to journalists (including News at 10!), worked with their coverage data, sat in on meetings, among other things.”  Owen Fay, BA History, Rostrum PR intern 2021.
