Yesterday I completed the final assessment of my degree in English Literature. Handing in the final essays was appropriately accompanied by the heavens opening up over Cardiff! Before my existential crisis could set in, I made an exciting plunge into the world of work by starting my ten-week taster with Petersens. Fittingly, the sun has now come out and all the team here have gone out of their way to help me settle in.

What led me to apply for the work taster here was its brilliant reputation. Over the course of my time here in Cardiff, Petersens is a name I’ve heard time and time again. Across Cardiff University, Petersens is known for its commitment to championing work experience and the high quality of its work. I was amazed to finally go behind-the-scenes and realise it’s only a team of five people that carry out all of that PR I’d been browsing online.

Already I’m really looking forward to attending their regular Cardiff Breakfast Club and getting to experience first-hand some of the events work that the team here at Petersens carries out. I’ve had a really interesting morning getting to know all of their clients and even after one day it’s helped me gain a focus into the eclectic world of PR. More than that, for the first time in my life I’ve been into a full-size Waitrose. Now if that isn’t a positive life experience I don’t know what is.

I know that doing a work taster with Petersens is the next step in gaining that invaluable insight and successfully securing a job after I officially graduate, and I’d encourage anyone thinking about it to get on and do it. It’s definitely helped me keep my existential crisis at bay for a few more weeks!
