It is 9 months today that I boarded a plane in Prague, Czech Republic, and began my adventure in Los Angeles as a trainee at Konnect PR. The time flies by so quickly, it is incredible!
I have been given this amazing opportunity after I graduated from my Mater degree back in Europe. Who wouldn’t want to move to Los Angeles given the choice? I sure couldn’t resist.
It’s been a huge step, not only because I had to learn more about the American culture, but also because having just finished college education, this is basically my very first job. What more, I initially studied journalism. This means I had to learn everything PR from the scratch. Luckily I have had the best teachers ever here at Konnect! In 9 months I have learned everything from putting together a media list to pitching. And I love it! It gives me a great feeling of accomplishment when I secure a media placement for a client!
Moving to Los Angeles made me realize how important it is to keep moving, staying challenged and taking risks. Not only it helps us grow, it also provides us with an opportunity to see the world! But you can definitely stay challenged even without moving abroad! If you ever feel like you need some kind of an adventure or challenge, start taking new classes, let it be a language course or a spinning class. Just keep moving! Both mentally and physically!
