We were recently joined in the office by Bethany for work experience. As part of her mentor programme with The Girls’ Network, she is partnered with our client partnerships director, Aimee Muirhead. With a keen interest in marketing, she joined us for a week to experience agency life. Here she discusses her experience.
This work experience has really helped me to come out of my shell and I’ve found it very useful in further enhancing my understanding of the working world. I have faced multiple tasks head on, attended many meetings and a conference.
I particularly enjoyed the research writing tasks that were set across the week, as I found the process exciting and interesting. The ideas we were exploring helped me to understand how important team work is in a business environment. All of the members of the team were very welcoming and made me feel like I belonged from day one. It has been an experience that I will never forget!
I am currently part of The Girls’ Network and my mentor is Aimee, Narrative’s client partnerships director. She has helped me a lot, from securing this work experience, to giving me countless opportunities I otherwise would never have had.
This placement has helped me to decide if marketing would be a viable career option for me. I have enjoyed it so much and, thanks to Aimee and the team at Narrative, I hope to one day end up in this industry, facing new challenges and growing my literature skills.
My time at Narrative has also helped me to narrow down the areas and companies to look for when applying for future work experience opportunities. I would recommend others to complete work experience in order to gain knowledge of what life after school involves.
