I had my first day at my internship yesterday at PSG Communications. PSG is the top leading PR firm in Ireland and they take clients from all over Europe from small name local brands to large global brands.The company is also divided into four different agencies that all take on different markets of PR such as corporate, sponsorship, general, and social media. As of right now they don’t really have an HR department, because it really only consist of one very busy lady, Susan. I’m going to be working with her in pretty much creating a standard for the HR department from what I can understand. Which I am really excited for.
The company itself is a really friendly, hardworking, determined group of people from what I can tell already. I love everyone I’ve met so far and it’s the kind of work environment I want to be a part of when I get my real job. Even the building design and all that I really like as well.
So far I haven’t really delved into anything really HR related yet since it’s only been two days. I’ve just been assigned to update and edit their last years HR documents which was surprisingly enjoyable for me. My first project as of now is to combine all the different departments’ intern guides into one welcome packet, which is turning out to be a lot more difficult than I thought. I’m really excited about finally getting put to work in a field that I’m interested in. I feel like I’m an adult doing a 9 to 5 and it’s crazy thinking I’m going to have to do that for the rest of my life.
