Hi! My name is Arjun, I’m finishing up my Bachelor of Communication and Media, specialising in Corporate and Public Communication. Over my last 3 years, I’ve been able to develop a strong foundation in the field with which I aim to start a career in public relations and related fields, to create relationships, to manage them and to help with crises or conflicts that may arise in a workplace. Having worked with organisations to further their communications objectives through internships or volunteering, I have obtained some real world experience over what works and what could be tweaked to get the best result, as feedback and constant reiteration are a very important part of the process.
The theories that I’ve learnt over the last few years have been put into practice in the teaching environment, in volunteering as a Student Mentor and work environments as a Student Ambassador. Surprisingly, it has had impacts in my personal life to some extent as well. I see myself growing and developing my skillset over the next few years. With a solid grasp of the internet and digital innovations, I feel that I am solidly prepared to create memorable and lasting impressions on people through online mediums while also utilising traditional media to its fullest.
I enjoy a fast paced environment with new things to do, and situations to adapt to that take advantage of my diverse skillsets, ranging from expertise in Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite to interpersonal skills and understanding of an audience. I use all of that to deliver a strong and resonant experience with the people I work with and the people that are reached through these organizations.
Many thanks to the Faculty of Arts and Design, who’ve helped me to strengthen my skillsets and try new things with electives and broaden my horizons.
Below are some of the projects I am most proud of over my degree, some of which gave me the chance to develop skills outside of my main course.
