    Hi Nikita, I wish you blessings as you apply for internships. Unpaid internships are what helped me to choose the field of Public Relations…I was more geared toward journalism but experience in the PR World opened my mind. When I returned home in St. Kitts, I applied for an internship, paid, and I have been here ever since. No regrets – I do engage in journalism efforts still but my heart is in PR. I am also engaged in various community groups and I budget to attend workshops and sessions where I can meet other Public Relations professionals. Workshops and conference help as well. Internships give you exposure and give you a taste of what life is like in the field, and guess what, you may just land your dream job at the same country you intern at. They are indeed great stepping stones!

      Hi Dentrecia,
      Congratulations! I’m glad you found something you really enjoy doing. Perhaps I should also attend workshops and conferences, it sounds like a great way of networking.

    Good luck applying for your internships. As a second year student, I have found that partaking in short-term, unpaid internships alongside my studies has really enabled me to understand what it is that I want to do. It seems so important today to ‘know’ what you want to when it comes to an occupation and internships are a great stepping stone I agree, to get your foot in the door and help you decide on your path!
