PR student's one week blog begins!

Matt_golf_2_1 Hello and just before I introduce myself, I would like to issue a minor warning to the majority of businesses around Yorkshire, that it is that time of year again where many students from various universities across the region will be contacting your company to find a work placement as part of their degree. So be prepared for panicking phone calls and thousands of rushed e-mails.

My name is Matt Peden and I am currently half-way through my second year studying Public Relations at Leeds Met. I have spent time gaining experience in my first year at a Manchester based firm, however this year I have turned my attention to Bruce Marshall Associates for their expertise and guidance to help along with my degree.

I am only here for five days due to the stressful, busy and demanding lifestyle that we students have (no irony). Nevertheless, I hope to gain as much experience as possible, including blog writing, which I was only referred to by Stuart recently, not in my first year, which I believe has been taught this year to our first year students.    

Hopefully, I can provide an interesting account of the news and my opinions in this blog in these five days and possibly persuade you to comment.

Hi Matt!
I am a first year student at Leeds Met and Richard Bailey told us about blogging in our first term. I am now putting it into practice working with Bruce Marshall Associates on the Crafty Plasterer blog.
Good luck blogging!
