Now is the time of year that PR students soon to graduate should be looking into graduate PR schemes at the top agencies, to start work in 2012.
It may be quite daunting and not the first thing on your list with assignment deadlines and the joy of Christmas, but it is certainly no old wives’ tale that the sooner you start to look the better.
To ease the pain of finding each scheme from the top PR agencies, Ben Cotton of Edelman PR, has listed all the schemes on his personal blog, Social Web Thing. The list is so useful we have decided to republish it in full here:
