Ok guys, I have all the reasons of why I'm applying and why any institute would want me, at 23 with tonnes of experience is Advertising, Marketing and Sales to go into Public Relations

How can I tell them the only reason why I'm intersted in public relations is that I'd be darn good at it cause I basically do it already and want to back up my years of working with a formal education but without sounding so. . . 'big-headed'??

Help me please!!!

If you're so good at it and have so much experience why do you need a formal qualification?

Cause I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere. I can't get promotion cause I'm not qualified, plus I'd like to know everything and become as good as I can be.

you don't tend to get anywhere without a formal qualification, unless there is an extreme shortage in people for that certian (type of) job.

How's this?? *laugh or cry?* :confused: x


It would be wrong for me to say that the decision I made at Sixteen, to be independent and go out into the world and get a job, has satisfied all my dreams and ambitions, it hasn't.

In an attempt to widen my horizons and prepare myself for prospective studies, I embarked on a PT HNC Business course at my local college, which unfortunately was unable to complete due to the emotional distress caused by the miscarriage of my child.
Yet, I have fought to overcome this obstacle, and I'm still confident and determined to succeed, showing not only myself but to all; I will not be defeated by obstacles. Through my past experiences I realise now that I have the opportunity to rectify my former decisions.

Although my work experience has given me many skills in dealing with issues involving PR, formal education I feel is a necessary step to further myself within the industry. Alongside helping my career chances, it will fulfil my insatiable pursuit for knowledge and a greater understanding of my chosen field of study, which no amount of work experience could give me.
