Being a Marketing Intern at The Courtyard…
Guest Blog From Marketing Intern, Abby Jones
“I work 2 days a week and no day is the same… I’m not even half way through my placement and I already feel so much more confident about my chances of getting a job in the world of marketing”
I graduated last summer from Hereford College of Arts with a Ba Hons in Graphic & Media Design. Like many graduates in their first year of the ‘world of work’ I have faced the battle of applying for jobs. They always seemed to be offered to people who were more experienced in the workplace, which was incredibly disheartening.
When I saw the position advertised with The Courtyard I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was the perfect opportunity for me as I could get a strong understanding of the world of marketing in a really vibrant and exciting environment. I was overjoyed when I got the phone call informing me that I had been selected!
After 6 weeks of being here I am so pleased that I have been given this opportunity! I work 2 days a week and no day is the same. I have assisted on photo shoots, written press releases, updated the website, helped out at events – and that’s just the last fortnight!
The entire team here are lovely and I have been made to feel very welcome by everyone. The Marketing team have been fantastic – willing to show me whatever I am interested in, offering me lots of opportunities outside the office and most importantly being very patient with my many questions.
I’m not even half way through my placement and I already feel so much more confident about my chances to get a job in the world of marketing. Opportunities like this are golden and I certainly intend on making the most of every day here!
