My time here this week has been amazing! I couldn’t have wished for a better environment to learn about the world of work, and one to point me to a career path I might want to follow.
I felt welcome as soon as I arrived on Monday; the office is full of talented ladies and I felt inspired to see what I could achieve in the next couple of years to come.
During my week of being here, I’ve been able to get a taster of what life in a marketing agency is like, and received nothing but support from the friendly and supportive staff who were there to give me verbal feedback and advice on the work I have completed.
I’ve been introduced to a lot of new platforms such as; LinkedIn, Hootsuite and Canva as well as received training on how to use Twitter for professional purposes (which will come in handy when I go into more depth in my courses).
On Tuesday morning, I was invited to join the team for their weekly meeting and got a great insight into the business, their new and potential clients as well as an overall overview of the industry.
The KC office has really helped me improve my level of focus on the tasks assigned to me, as well as made me feel responsible and mature.
I have thoroughly enjoyed getting some hands-on experience by working on client projects and carrying out a variety of tasks such as:
- Content creation for social media
- Blog writing
- Creation of presentations
- Industry research
This placement has further encouraged me to succeed in my up-coming GCSE’s which are just around the corner, and come May 2018 I will be taking the next steps in my education. This week has opened my eyes to what I can achieve if I apply myself.
I have loved feeling included, and it has been so enjoyable that I could definitely see myself working in this industry in the near future. Thank you for having me, KC Communications team!
