Circus Media recently formed a partnership with Deakin University to offer a formal internship program for students studying PR, communications, marketing and design, with a placement available every two months throughout the year exclusively for Deakin students.
Interns will predominately be working with Geelong Community Foundation, of which our owner Carly is on the Board of Directors.
We are excited to have our second successful applicant Emily, the Allison Murphy Memorial Scholarship recipient, officially begin her internship as part of this program.
Read all about Emily and her first day at the Circus.
My name is Emily Evans and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Communications, Majoring in Public Relations at Deakin University. I have been raised in the beautiful town Geelong, attending primary, secondary and now tertiary studies here. Geelong has a great community and I am very privileged to be able to call this wonderful town home.
In my free time I like to swim, read and hang out with my friends. I love drinking coffee, my dog and the beach. Whilst at university I work part-time as a pool lifeguard.
I have been fortunate enough to receive the Allison Murphy Memorial Scholarship. I hope to uphold Allison’s memory with integrity. This exceptional opportunity has lead me to network with fantastic people and provide me with the opportunity to have a formal recipients dinner with Deakin’s Vice Chancellor, Jane den Hollander. An admirable and inspiring leader.
I am in my second year of a three year degree. Once I have completed my degree I am hoping to secure a job in public relations. I hope the internship at Circus Media will help me gain insight into what area of PR interests me. I am eager to gain real life experience and learn new skills.
Already my first day has been exciting and inspiring. The team are terrific, very friendly and welcoming and the work environment is vibrant. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work along side this fantastic company and cannot wait to complete my internship here.
