10 months ago I started my placement as a digital marketing assistant feeling nervous and apprehensive; today I finished that placement confident in myself and my future, something I never thought I’d be. I wouldn’t identify as a shy person, nor a loud person, instead fitting somewhere comfortably in the middle. And like any person I have had doubts in my ability to succeed and achieve, but this placement has helped me to realise that I can succeed, and will if I’m willing to work for it.
I like to think of myself as an optimistic person, one who always finds the silver lining in a bad situation. However, this month I have suffered from January blues, like many, the grey and dreary days have got to me all too much. The relentless cloud, fog and rain we have witnessed in Portsmouth (and all over the UK) has made it near impossible to look on the bright side.
I am studying for a BA (Hons) in communications and media, currently carrying out my placement year as a social media intern for a digital marketing company. I’m learning new things and discovering more about the online marketing world everyday, so I’ve decided to start this blog to share what I’m writing at work, but also to share my own opinion on all things media.
