Interning at Phillips Group provides an excellent opportunity to understand agency-life and learn about key areas of public relation practice. I, myself, completed a four-month long internship at Phillips Group. This was a great place to put what I had learnt into practice. Some of my responsibilities included auditing social media channels, proposing marketing strategies and promotion ideas, and researching communication trends. Tasks allocated to me, directly contributed to consultant’s work for real life clients. This meant I had to complete them under a strict deadline and also ensure that it was done to a high standard. During my time at Phillips Group, I didn’t feel like just an intern but an integral part of the team. No fetching lunches, coffee runs or photocopying here!
