This is why a career in internal comms could be for you

We've all been there. You're 18 (19 at a push) and suddenly, some of life's big choices hit you. Will it be uni or college? A-levels or an apprenticeship? And what are you going to study?! These are pretty big decisions when most of the time, you won't have all the options on the table. I, as an example, was pretty keen to do journalism because my ...
