Igor joined our Marketing Department for a work experience placement...
Having had no previous experience in a marketing field, I believed that getting a work experience placement with the Students’ Union would be vital – not only for CV purposes, but also to get a deeper perspective onto how things work, before being launched into the work environment after graduation.
During the placement, I worked on a range of projects. Unlike in many corporations, where you’ll be placed in a corner to simply see how the professionals do it, with the SU it’s totally different. Your opinion is not only vital, but it’s also welcomed; making you feel part of the team.
If I had to pinpoint the aspect that I most enjoyed about the placement, I would have to say being part of an upcoming project – as it gives you an authentic feeling of how marketing works, and what comes with the role.
Would I recommend this, or even do this once again? Absolutely.”
