Link to ‘Vlog: Beauty PR Career Chat’ video

‘What is your job?’ is probably in my top 5 most asked questions to me, so it was about time I sat down and had a little chat about it. My official title is a Beauty PR & Editorial Assistant, so I do a little bit of PR (mainly for bloggers and online media), but more on the editorial side of things, which is basically a lot of writing for various outlets – blog posts, newsletters, all that kind of business. I am very lucky to be doing something which is really my ‘dream job’, but a lot of bladdy hard work went into it! Work hard, keep focused and you’ll get there in the end! If anyone has any questions do pop them below and I will do my best to answer :)

    I want to get into Fashion PR, but there’s a big hoo har with my uni application, not sure if I’ll get in.. If I don’t I’m definitely going to try for an internship. Was there any particular website or company you went through to get yours? You literally have the best job!

    This is what I’d love to do when I graduate so it’s really nice to hear someone’s personal experiences with it – especially as you had an unrelated degree like I do. I’m in my second year at the mo and would love some work experience over summer although I can only work for 2 months really – how close to summer do you think is a good time to be emailing PR companies? xxx

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      I would say about 2 months before – hope this helps! Best of luck! x

    They say if you enjoy your job, you’ll never work a day in your life. For the most part that’s true, like you say there’s always the slog to get you there. Great video x

      Very true! x

    Love this post. I graduated in Journalism in the summer and you have my dream job. I can’t wait to have a job I love and you inspired me with this video. Would love for you to have a read of my blog, we seem very similar.

    this is such a wonderful video. i myself am not wanting to join beauty pr as a career but it’s great to see what goes on beyond the companies, and the effort people put in these days especially to include bloggers! you come across as such a nice person, and i love your accent. 

    p.s. definitely agree – working in a bar definitely makes you appreciate bar tenders more. i tip so much more now i’ve experienced it myself. hope you’re well.jade – http://jadestobbs.blogspot.com

  • annamarie

    hey anna, I’ve almost finished my first year of uni studying fashion buying/marketing. I love the course but feel I have so much more potential within the beauty industry, blogging and PR. I’m undecided to drop out and focus on a beauty blog. What would you recommend?

  • Alanah

    What did you study in uni? x
