I spent a week working at Marketing Zone to digest some very valuable and worthwhile work experience. I’ve always had an interest in marketing, and after thorough research on the internet, I came across this agency. For me, it was the perfect place to gain some first time work experience in an award winning marketing communications agency.
I was given a project for the week and worked on a top accessories brand, which I absolutely enjoyed doing. Some of the tasks included research into department stores for upcoming trends for 2012 to use as background information for promotional stories, and searching for images of celebrities wearing sunglasses to see what styles are popular amongst today’s A-listers. I also took part in PR activities by sending out celebrity and journalist sample gifts, and tracking the number of followers and tweets received on Twitter for the brand.
After spending a week at Marketing Zone, I thoroughly enjoyed my work experience. I worked with their welcoming and friendly team, and they devoted time in training me about the different aspects of their projects. Being self-motivatied I was able to learn and understand their work in such a short space of time – which was totally unexpected!
It made me realise that I now would like to pursue a career in marketing communications. I also learned some new skills, which I am going to take away with me to use in my Marketing career.
Thank you guys at Marketing Zone!
