Edelman Grad Scheme Closing Shortly

From personal experience I know this time of year is an incredibly busy part of the student calendar, so I thought I’d remind those who are interested in applying for the Edelman graduate scheme that you have until Monday 31 January 2011 to get your application in.

Although, I have not personally experienced being part of the Edelman graduate scheme, as an interested outsider and colleague, I’ve spoken to many of the grads – and without exception they find it a tough, educational and thoroughly enjoyable introduction to the world of PR. It’s a good scheme and grads are supported with mentors, as well as gaining experience across a range of departments.

If you’re still in two minds about applying – I would say go for it. Edelman is a great place to work. It’s a fast-paced and exciting environment where you will get to work with fantastic people on some of the worlds biggest brands. Admittedly, there can be long hours at times, but there are also some nice perks, such as drinks on a Thursday, massages and breakfast, as well as the occasional glass of bubbly.

Do let me know if you have any questions on life at Edelman. You can find out more information on the Edelman graduate scheme here, as well as a list of 2011 PR grad schemes here.
