Peggy Wheatley

"I am conducting my Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement at Haystac: The Social Relations Agency. As a final year student, I wanted to gain practical experience in public relations, media and communications to complement my studies at Monash. I saw WIL as a unit that would help broaden my knowledge of communication research and an opportunity to gain real-life work experience in my field.

Most of my duties include researching media coverage for the agency's clients and compiling media lists or influencer databases for upcoming campaigns or launches. Working with well-known clients while also learning essential workplace skills such as time management and internal communications has and will assist my employability while also enhancing my education as a Monash student."
