Work Experience At Luminous PR: Sydney Hobbs

We recently had a really exciting week with Sydney Hobbs, who joined us for her work experience placement. It was a bit of a whirlwind week where we introduced her to the ins and outs of digital marketing and tech PR! We asked her what she made of her Luminous experience…


What made you apply to do work experience at a Tech PR agency?

I applied to a Tech PR agency as I study media at school for GCSE and thought it would be an interesting place to work for a week.


What did you get up to at Luminous PR?

At Luminous PR I’ve worked with different people and I’ve learnt about different parts of what Luminous do on a daily basis. I went to London and sat in meetings and brainstorm sessions, wrote a blog for their website and completed different research tasks.


What surprised you the most about your work experience?

What surprised me the most out of this whole week was how much work there is to do, and fit in, in one day!


What did you learn?

I learnt some IT skills that I didn’t know before and gained a more developed idea of what PR is all about.


What is your go-to social media platform? Why?

My go-to social media platform would be SnapChat as I like to keep up-to-date with everything on the subscribed stories (and chat with my friends!).


Do you have a favourite piece of technology? Why?

My favourite piece of technology that I own (as well as my most valuable) would be my phone as I can message my friends and family on it.


If you could have a theme song for your life, what would it be?

My theme song would have to be to Avengers.


What does your ideal weekend look like?

Either out with my friends or spending a day with my family.


This week you’ve worked in an office, on a train, over Skype with remote workers, even had meetings in a co-working space! With all this in mind, what would your ideal workplace look like in the future?

My ideal workplace would be in an office or travelling to different places. I would like to work in an office because I’m most productive then, however, I would also like to travel as it would be interesting to adventure out to new places.


What would you like to do as a career?

When I’m older I’d like to become a solicitor and eventually become a judge.
