Case Studies & Testimonials
Hannah Fuller a female student passionate about a career within fashion attended our Access 2 Fashion and Journalism event.
Hannah found out about the event via a university course leader, who forwarded on the opportunity to fellow students. The event was an opportunity for students to gain insight and also network with professionals. Hannah then secured an internship with Escada where she was able to gain practical Fashion PR Experience.
“I knew the event would be popular, so didn’t expect to be awarded a place – but it was a pleasant surprise!”
“The event was extremely beneficial, more so than I could have imagined. There was a great turn outboth from students and guest speakers, who all gave very motivational and informative presentations. One speaker that stood out for me was actually the host – Sir Terry Mansfield. He was clearly extremely knowledgeable about the industry, having been involved with magazines for many years. The Managing Director of Escada (Denise Shepherd) that really stood out to me also. Her response to one students question regarding how to ‘get away from the stress of the job’ really inspired me.”
“Without the event, I can’t imagine myself being able to secure the placement. The problem is that there are so many people desperate for experience and placements that companies are constantly sent CV’s you need to have something to make yours stand out. I have been told numerous times that it’s more about whom you know, not what you know. Therefore, the Access2 event gave me the perfect opportunity to make contacts and promote myself to potential employers. That way, when they received my CV, it didn’t just go into a pile. It lead to me getting a placement!”
