The PR Place-ment

1 Nov

It’s a small world when it comes to online PR talent – though it’s expanding fast. So small that you can still get to know everyone who’s anyone – and predict great things for them.

This is a now familiar – and highly selective – roll-call. There’s the LEWIS stable, including Drew B, Alex and Morgan. And the Edelman empire, with Stephen and Erin joining some wellestablished names.

There’s Simon, who has recently moved to Green Communications. And Paull, who’s about to set off on a blogging world tour.

Richard Millington is something of an outsider in this crowd (as an events management student), though he’s talented, is learning very fast and now has a year’s experience under his belt. He’s now recruiting his successor for a student placement in Cheltenham. He’s a hard act to follow, but this shouldn’t put off the ambitious.

UPDATE: I learn via Stephen that Edelman has revamed its graduate recruitment site and is now calling for applicants for next year’s intake.

    It’s hilarious to me that you called Lewis a stable.
    There’s probably a cultural difference, but it just struck me as funny.

    Dear Richard,
    I am a first year student on your course, and yes I have to agree that the world of pr related blogs are expanding fast. I myself set up a blog this afternoon. It was my first one infact, im guilty of being one of the students who raised their hands when asked if they did’nt know what a blog was when you asked many weeks back.
    Feel free to take a look and see what you think. I am aware it needs work but in time im sure it will be very fruitful.
    Regards Paddy.

    Welcome Paddy. And I started listening to the Forward podcast this morning, but was interrupted before you were introduced, Karel.
