An award-winning career in PR

John attended the HSPR Graduate School program in his final year at University of Notre Dame, Sydney.  Keen to enter the PR workforce, John was unsure how to best leverage his past skills (as a pharmacy assistant) and how he could capitalise on his passion for health and wellness.  HSPR helped him find the perfect opportunity.  And what a success it’s been!

“HSPR enabled a fast-tracked career into the world of healthcare PR.  First as an Account Executive and now Senior Account Executive at VIVA! Communications working on many award-winning campaigns.

HSPR Grad School provided an insight into the daily activities of an emerging PR practitioner with real life examples and fantastic mentors to share their experience and knowledge in an actual agency environment.

The best part was learning about the delivery of successful public relations campaigns and activities including stakeholder management.

The networking opportunities went far beyond my expectations.  My HSPR trainer recommended me to VIVA! Communications where I landed my first role as an account executive.  I’ve been steadily progressing my career ever since.

I really do credit HSPR as a major part of my professional career growth,” said John.
