Bachelor of Communication - Public Relations

Having always been told to, “ssssshhh” in the classroom, I knew that a career in communications is where my talents would best be put to practice.

My decision to attend Massey University was the best one I made, and I honestly couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Throughout my degree, I built great working relationships with my lecturers, and benefited from smaller class sizes, practical hands-on learning, and engaging study materials. I also got to kick-start my career by interning at Goode PR.

Following my studies, I briefly worked as a PR and Media Officer for Surf Life Saving New Zealand before jetting off to London and landing a job as a Social Media Officer at Heathrow Airport. Within this role I work with brands such as BBC, Google, Top Gear, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, and Air New Zealand, and I communicate daily with a social audience of 300,000+ people across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, G+, and YouTube. I’ve been here for two amazing years working in the type of position I could only ever dream of.

The communication degree at Massey was wonderfully broad, and I am very grateful that I decided to study it. I have been able to apply all of the skills I learnt in my working environment, and I can’t wait to see where my adventure will lead me next.
