Ms Emma Davenport
Bachelor of Arts (Public Relations), Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus
“The great thing about the PR degree at Deakin is that an internship is incorporated into the structure of the course. When I started doing industry based work it became so evident how relevant the course was.
Throughout my study I tried to gain as much knowledge and experience as possible. I spent a summer working at the Australian Open’s media department and I was also able to work part-time with international media and PR company ‘Crocmedia’ coordinating media for various events and clients.
I am now working in the publicity department at Channel 10 in Melbourne where some of my tasks include scheduling photo shoots, talent appearances and media liaison.
Seeing myself apply the skills and ideas learnt during my course has really inspired me to be confident in my ability."
