    Interview process

    I contacted the agency via email after knowing about them by Googling :luxury PR agency within London

    after sending email twice, I had an answer and a request for an interview.

    I got there a bit earlier than supposed to and they asked me to wait until the right time!

    Once I got inside, we sat into the conference room with the team manager and one senior account executive. They were both very nice and friendly.

    - How many times a week would you like to work with us?
    - How much would you expect as a salary?
    - When can you start?
    - How long would be your internship?
    - What have you studied?
    - What were your most challenging project? Why?
    - tell us about you!

    Most difficult question

    The question about the salary. I am not British and have no idea what are the average salary as being a graduate in the UK. Therefore to not seem too greedy, I answered that I had never been paid before for an internship, and that it was up to them to pay me or not. In the end I got £100 a week which I am not unsatisfied with, but maybe if I would have known a bot more about the subject I could have earned a bit more!

    Interview tips

    Be yourself
    Do go dress to formal (I wore black trousers, flat leather boots, a shirt and a blazer)
    Be sure you speak and write perfect English as it is a PR company and you will be asked to write a lot!!
