My favourite part of placement was the atmosphere and company culture. It’s a really good working environment. Also, in terms of work, the flexibility I had and the range of things I learnt. I will miss my colleagues and all the people here a lot. Everyone was really friendly and helpful with work and during the six months we had a really good relationship.

We had socials regularly, which were quite diverse, from going for drinks to comedy nights. It was also great for building up teams and relationships, which really helped with work. I also love living in Bath because it’s so peaceful and beautiful. I haven’t been to a lot of cities in the UK, but out of all the ones I’ve been to Bath is my favourite.

What have I learned? So many things! For example, for internet marketing I’ve learnt how to do things like keyword research, content audits and how to use Google Analytics. In terms of working in an office environment, that’s a skill in itself. In general, wherever I go the skills to identify a target audience and building relationships with people through outreach are really important. Also, everything changes frequently so I was always learning new things as well.

I’ve always been interested in marketing, so that’s why I chose to work here, and it’s given me a lot of insights and experience in this area. Before my placement I was only really considering traditional marketing but I’ve found internet marketing really interesting as well. So I’ll just see what opportunity comes along!
