Do i still want to work In PR is a huge question that has been raised during the first semester.

Public relations is renowned for its competitive edge and extreme bitchiness.  Whilst studying public relations i’ve witnessed much of this.

As i came into my second year, i was determined to do well and succeed and do what ever it takes to reach my goals. This resulted in a change in myself, i was becoming more competitive against people, looking for flaws in how i could be better than them and ‘bitching’ back at those bitches who bitched at me (you know who you are!). Eventually, i realised i was becoming someone i didnt want to be.

Does reaching my goals mean i have to sacrifice my morals and values?  There are many ethical questions surrounding public relations and if being in the industry changes people for the worst, than is it worth it?

Yes, the competitive edge is exciting and its a huge buzz when i achieve something but I value my beliefs more than i do money and success.  This is something i seriously have to consider especially when it comes to choosing my placement and the sector i want to work in. I hope that i can find something that doesn’t conflict with my morals!

I am still going work hard but make sure keep myself in check in the process! 🙂

Wow, 3 months into the 2nd year and its been mad!

Maybe its because im a constant worrier and feel like there is always something to do but this year has been non-stop. Along with the portfolio pieces there are harder coursework pieces to do and more. The stress is on!

I had to go home for the weekend just gone because the stress was really getting to me.  Im back much more relaxed now and finally giving attention to my blog!

On another matter, I’m very sad and anagry to hear about what happend to baby p. How did the social services become so neglectful that they were ignorant to such torture?

I think its time for serious scrutiny on the social services department. In my experience, nobody decidea to take the first step to solving the problem until the problem is at its worst.  The governemt seriously need to revise its policys on this matter. Its disgusting!
