I have a new job in PR!

So ummm… I guess things have been a bit hectic at the moment.

If you haven’t already guessed from the blog post title, I have some pretty big news.

I’ve kept it on the lowdown for a while, but now I feel ready to tell you guys and this may also be the reason why I may be quiet on the blog for the foreseeable future.

You may have seen me mention it on Twitter/Instagram, but I feel like it’s not official unless I write about it on here...

I GOT A NEW JOB!

It’s all been a bit overwhelming since the moment I received an interview invite, to actually landing the job itself and finally having the courage to tell my current job. But now I feel like I can finally breathe and actually talk about it.

About a month ago, I got an email over the Easter weekend about going in for an interview, went in on the following Wednesday for a 2 hour interview, I then had to write a test press release to send to them to see if I was cut out for the job, then the following Saturday, I was offered the job.

And this was all in ONE WEEK. And my parents were on holiday at the time, so I was feeling incredibly overwhelmed and anxious, but now I am so excited and happy!!!

Over the last 18 months, I have loved my job working in Digital Marketing. I knew I wanted to write because writing is my passion and I love finding a story and creating an online outlet for it.

But over the last 18 months, I have thought and thought where I see my career going. And working in Digital Marketing has made me realise that I don’t want to work in Digital Marketing and Social Media.

Sure, I enjoy it, but actually working on the nitty gritty technical stuff, instead of the creative side wasn’t for me. It actually made me dislike social media all together. 

And coming home from doing social media all day made me not want to do social media for myself.

But despite having elements of my job that I knew I didn’t enjoy, what made the job so much fun and so enjoyable was the people. And making the decision to actually go for the interview and the thought of leaving such a great team behind was heartbreaking.

But I knew I couldn’t stay for the people, I had to do what was best for me.

I have always loved writing and the more time I spent writing stuff outside of work, the more I realised I wasn’t writing enough in my day job. So that needed to change.

I did a lot of research over what jobs would be suitable for me and I started looking into PR. Speaking to friends and blogging friends, a lot have said to me that they could see me working in a PR role.

I like meeting new people, talking to people about their stories, what they want from a certain campaign and how to get the best out of it through writing and I like seeing that writing displayed in all sorts of media outlets like printed magazines, online blogs and more.

And as a blogger, I have always been intrigued about what goes on the other side of a blogger/PR relationship. Something which I have touched on with my current job, but I knew I wanted more.

So I guess it made sense for me to look for a job in PR!

And I got offered a job!

So I guess can now *officially* announce that of today, I am leaving my current role with All Things Management and from next Tuesday, I will be an Account Executive for Evolution PR!

*APPLAUSE*

Eeeeek!

Things might be quiet on the blog for a while, just while I get to grips with my new role, figure out how much workload I will have on and I want to fully embrace this new experience and ensure I get the best out of it.

As I know I will want to get home and just take care of myself to ensure I’m fully functional for what I can assume will be a busy, overwhelming, but very exciting first week.

Don’t worry, I won’t be gone forever… but my full-time job does come before my blog.

But I truly feel this is going to be an exciting career move for me. Sometimes you've just got to take a chance and see where it gets you. 

I’m not doing too badly for a Musical Theatre graduate, eh?
