Wow, has it already been 4 weeks? Approaching this last week of the trip is very bitter sweet. I am so thankful for this experience and all the friends I have made on this trip. This week we went on a dinner cruise on the Thames river, and then went to a PR ad marketing firm the next day. This dinner cruise was one of the best nights I had on this trip. Everyone was dressed up formally and we all felt very “high class”. There was an awesome singer who entertained us while we all danced on the dance floor at the front of the boat. The best part was towards the end when we went under tower bridge. It was one of the most amazing things I had ever seen. It was an extremely fun night that I will never forget.
The next morning we went on our last field trip to the PR and Marketing firm. I was not sure what to expect because I had never done anything like this before. When we arrived the workers were all very friendly and welcoming. We sat in a conference room and the employees gave presentations about their jobs and tools that they use when doing PR and marketing. It was very interesting to see how things I am learning about in school were applied in real life. A guy who handles most of the writing for the companies clients had us take a writing test that they give to the majority of the employees at an interview. It was cool to experience that, and it might have even prepared us for when we have to go to job interviews. I like that we ended with this field trip because it was very educational and really pertained to what we had been learning all summer in this class.
