How'd you get here?

I’ve lived in the UK since 2016, having previously lived in Bermuda, Canada, and the US. It was very difficult to pick up a stable career in PR, and communications in general, after graduating from university and began bouncing from job to job for a few years. After losing work at the start of the pandemic, I decided to re-enrol into university, where I took on an internship first introducing me to B2B tech PR. After my internship was over, I begrudgingly took on a mandatory internship, choosing beauty PR, as part of my degree. Once that was complete, I applied for a permanent position at the agency I was interning and by chance applied for a B2B tech role at Finn Partners. After I was rejected from the beauty agency, the same day is when I received an email from Finn Partners offering me a position!
