Jade A Jade A

I am currently working as a marketing intern for and I have recently graduated from the University of York with a degree in English Language and Linguistics. However, my real passion at university was writing, and particularly writing for blogs. I began a blog myself over a year ago, switching between fashion and beauty, to my university experiences and I have been hooked ever since. Blog writing opened me up to the world of social media and blogging communities that I quickly became a part of, and since then I have been fascinated by the use of blogging and social media for marketing and PR. Working as a marketing intern at is giving me the opportunity to experience marketing and PR first-hand and I enjoy every opportunity I get. It’s really opening my eyes to the prospect of a career in marketing and PR and I hope to continue gaining valuable experience in this area and hopefully a future permanent post in the industry will follow!
