|Outside the Bliss office|
My first job was to flick through 3 of today's newspapers and identify news that would be relevant to Bliss. This includes celebrity news, fashion and beauty news, teen stories and funny stories. I then did the same on a few websites such as sugarscape.com. My second job was pretty scary at first. I was asked to ring lots of Fashion PR's for brands such as Apricot, Pilot, F&F at Tesco, rocknrose.co.uk and much more! I was to ask them how they wished to be credited in the magazine. I had to ring about 15 PR's altogether. After a few, I got the hang of it but was pretty scary at first!
One of the competitions they had on this week was to become a supermodel and win a model contract with Select Agency. So as you could image, there were a lot of applications being e-mailed through. My job was to print off ALL of these applications. Not the most fun job, but you have to expect these kind of jobs when doing work experience - especially in an office.
The one worker I couldn't keep my eyes off was the Fashion and Beauty Editor, Fatima. Her pictures are all over the magazine and I just felt like I was looking at a celebrity!
Overall, my first day was interesting and insightful. I got to meet the workers, see the amazing office, learn its environment and had an idea of the kind of jobs I would be doing. Keep coming back to my blog to see what I did for the rest of the week!
