My experience with Kinetic exceeded all expectations. Having taken me under their wing for two whole weeks, the team immediately made me feel right at home. On my first day, I was greeted by four friendly faces at Kinetic’s small vibrant office located in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

As a recent graduate from the University of Birmingham, I am faced with the looming uncertainty of my future career prospects. It’s easy to feel as though time is ticking to find that perfect graduate job. Undeniably, work experience and internships can be daunting as fresh-faced graduates find themselves working alongside experienced professionals that are profoundly knowledgeable in their field.

However, my time at Kinetic has been anything but daunting and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the team. I was involved in the delivery of one of their PR campaigns which gave me a taste of what it means to be part of a team of PR professionals. Over the length of my work experience, I have been given the responsibility of creating social media calendars, writing LinkedIn posts as well as selling-in media releases to national newspapers all under the team’s watchful eye.

The two-week placement has been a very useful introduction to the world of public relations and, thanks to Kinetic, my understanding of the sector has greatly improved. I am looking forward to gaining further experience in this sector in the future.
