I think I should start this post with an apology. So here goes: ‘Sorry’. I apologise as this blog is somewhat self-indulgent and contains my personal reflections rather than the usual focus on PR industry issues and employability.
Back to the self-indulgence…as some of you may know, I’ve recently accepted a job at Edelman working for their UK Digital team, Spook Media. I am delighted and really looking forward to beginning this new chapter in not only my career, but my life too. Despite only meeting my new colleagues just the once, I know a bit about them – having read their blogs, tweets and exchanged emails. I can’t wait to get cracking.
Although, I’m truly excited to start work – the last couple of days have been a bit strange for me, as I’ve left Leeds, my home for the past 5 ½ years. I’ve not only left behind a city, but a group of friends who have become something of an adopted, northern family.
Whilst, there is an element of sadness, there is certainly no regret and I’m looking forward to the challenges of my new role, learning from some great people and the opportunities this may bring.
Today is my first day at Edelman. Wish me luck.
