Today is my last day at Sweaty Betty Pr after interning here for the week, and what a week it has been!
But first let me backtrack.
I’m currently in my second year of studying public relations at RMIT, Melbourne. Wanting as much experience as possible I made the trek to Sydney to experience working at an agency with an extremely high reputation in the hopes to learn as much as possible in one short week.
As soon as I arrived on my first day I was put to work helping the showroom coordinators. All the girls here have been nothing but lovely and made settling in to work a breeze.
I began work on merchandising, processing returns, photographing clothes and filing for clients straightaway.
When I got the hang of that, more responsibilities were given to me and I helped with gift bags and was lucky to write a few blogs. I helped out with the Cleo Swimsuit Party invites and I also have pulled looks to send to various magazines. The idea that what I chose could end up in a mag is pretty exciting!
On Wednesday I went with Alena to Parramatta, as one of her clients was getting a segment on the Today show. I assisted with whatever was needed and it was great to get the chance to see how the whole process worked.
I don’t think I could have come on a better week. On Thursday Adrian Grenier aka Vinnie Chase, came into Sweaty Betty, unfortunately his entourage were not in tow. I’ve been a huge fan since I first spotted him in the teen flick and one of my personal fav ‘You Drive me Crazy’. Looking ever so dapper in his checked shirt and scarf he was friendly, charming and of course HOT! We were all in a frenzy as soon as he arrived and made sure we captured the moment.
The whole week has been fun and I have learnt so much. Roxy and the girls have been so nice and helpful. It’s been a great experience to be able to learn from PR girls that do it right!
Thanks for the week Betties!
