What is an assessment centre in pr/marketing like? Grad scheme wise watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys I' Gill

    I want to enter public relations/marketing when I graduate and I already have good exp in both including being a campus brand manager for Spotify, work exp in a PR agency and soon a 3 month paid internship for a massive pr agency with a HQ in New York.

    The thing is Ive never had an extended assessment before and I'm really worried about the numerical reasoning/exercises because I'm bad at maths and crumble under timed pressure.

    Do you know what an assessment centre in PR would entail? does it have the numerical assessments? Is it worth getting a tutor and doing a maths course?

    Grad schemes like Hotwire PR have proper ass. centers and if the company I'm interning with in the summer dont take me on I would like to work there. I like how its a proper grad scheme as in PR thats proven quite difficult to find.

    Would appreciate your help

    As far as I'm aware, there are no maths test for PR grad scheme assessment days, though I could be wrong. You can brush up on your maths skills if you like, but I don't think it's a requirement.
