I didn’t think I would ever really want to get involved in the PR industry. I would sit in class and think to myself, “I just want to be a writer for a magazine, I don’t care about PR.” Little did I know how much I would regret saying those words. I have come to realise just how much PR and Journalism are related and not only that but have found that I actually enjoy PR almost more than I do writing.
PR is all about networking and linking a brand or client to the media and in turn, exposing them to consumers. PR is a way of selling a brand and making sure that all of the press is helping the brand or client become more popular and successful. When looking at a way to connect PR to myself, my first thought went straight to 5s pr.
5s pr is a PR firm based out of Boston Massachusetts and is a “small boutique agency, specializing in beauty, fashion and lifestyle media relations, [they] understand what the media wants, but more importantly… the power of word of mouth buzz, and how to create it.”
I found 5s pr whilst I was job hunting. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with myself after graduation so began to go outside of my “journalism” mentality and started looking for PR jobs. When I found this firm, my heart skipped a beat. It was everything I wanted in a job and more. Location was perfect: Boston is my favourite city in America. Clients: an absolute dream– working with businesses in the fields of fashion, photography, and beauty. Size: perfect for not getting lost in the hustle and bustle of work.
