  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • The role at Sony is super varied and can be changed to fit what you want to get out of it. You have set weekly and monthly tasks, which is great for keeping you occupied during less busy periods. The majority of work is ad-hawk and discussed between you and your managers. You get treated as one of the team and are given the opportunity to work independently and have your own projects.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • Yes! The whole year was a huge learning experience and meant I got to learn all about PR in-house. All of my soft skills developed, including communication, problem-solving and time management.
