  1. Cheers Hao,

    I agree with Dan, good strategy! .

    I’m in the same position as you are. Studying Intern. Communication in the Netherlands and right now I am doing an internship here in Chatswood and looking for a thesis internship (paid…). Do you have any ideas about PR agencies or PR departments in bigger companies?

    Btw, if you haven’t already, join PRIA on LinkedIn. Public Relations Institute of Australia!

    Good luck and keep up the work!

  2. Hey Manik,

    Thanks for the kind words. I’ve been doing my own research into PR agencies in Sydney, Australia, not sure if you’ll be interested in that. But if you are, let me know and we can talk about.

    And joining PRIA on LinkedIn was one of my main priorities!

    Cheers,

    Hao

  3. Hi Hao,

    I’ve really enjoyed reading your interview series. I’m also looking for employment in the communications industry, but in London. May I ask how you went about getting those interviews? I have thought of doing similar blog posts, but with businesses.

    Best Wishes,

    Tom

  4. Hi Tom,

    How are you?

    Thanks a lot for your kind words. What I did was basically go on Twitter and cold-call a bunch of PR professionals hoping that they’d be willing to contribute.

    Luckily there were a lot of people who were happy to take out time to talk to me and that’s how I got all those great interviews.

    I wouldn’t say it was a difficult process, but it’s certainly a grind!

    Good luck with your career.

    Cheers,

    Hao

  5. Hi Hao,

    I just found your blog via the LinkedIn discussion, and read this post. The interview was great, and it was great to see someone else that takes such initiative. I couldn’t agree with you more: people are definitely willing to help. All you have to do is ask.

    Are you currently in Australia? I’m from Florida and just moved to California, but Australia is one of my top destinations to visit/live.

  6. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog. You have some really great posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for
    a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Kudos!
