My 十大正规网赌网址 Team GB internship has prepared me for my future career

It has been six weeks since I began my first internship working at the 十大正规网赌网址 as the Team GB communications intern. 它也显著地标志着中点.

42 days has flown by and it is almost overwhelming to look back on after learning so much.

A highlight so far was having the amazing opportunity to meet Team GB Olympian Kye Whyte as well as work behind the scenes to help plan and promote the events which brought him to the university campus.

These events on their own brought so many new experiences such as preparing content for social media, 为摄影师和摄像师创建摘要, 制作一个 新闻稿 对这两个事件.

通过我的实习,我了解到大学的 与GB团队合作 is truly for everyone and provides such a large variety of incredible opportunities for 学生 and staff and the wider local community. 我建议每个人都尽可能地参与进来.

I have been lucky enough to be able to learn from so many different areas of marketing and communications on top of the work I have done with Team GB

作为我参与的一部分, I have had the pleasure of liaising with the British Olympic Association commercial executive Leyla Toothill, 他说:

“We are really proud to partner with the 十大正规网赌网址 and really enjoy working with 学生 to deliver key projects. 得到实习生的支持对我来说意义重大, 特别是他们增加了一个新的视角, 有创造性的想法和激励正规网赌十大排行取得更多.”

“Working within such a diverse marketing team has been an incredible experience.” 米娅波特

直到我开始实习, I also didn’t realise that many smaller tasks I often overlooked were quite difficult to get used to. I soon found that writing a formal email to ask nicely for a favour was a new lesson in itself.

Workplace etiquette quite quickly became my new priority in the first couple of weeks and I wanted to learn it fast so I could confidently and professionally complete daily tasks (instead of reading an email 50 times before I sent it!).

Working within such a diverse marketing team has also been an incredible experience throughout my first six weeks. I have been lucky enough to be able to learn from so many different areas of marketing and communications on top of the work I have done with Team GB, 包括公共关系, 社交媒体与设计.

期待, I can’t wait to welcome more athletes onto campus in the next six weeks and be a part of the hard work that goes on behind these events, to further develop my confidence in the workplace ready for my future career in marketing.

I have received some lovely feedback and endorsements from colleagues. One that stood out was from my manager Nicole, who wrote the below:

“It has been such a pleasure having Mia working on the Team GB partnership, she settled in very quickly and has already been recognised as a valued member of the wider communications team for her enthusiasm, attention to detail and for the skills that she has already developed as part of her studies and previous experience.

“Mia has excellent organisation and communication skills, and is always up for a challenge. It has been a valuable experience for me to work with her and as soon as she started, she gave me the confidence to trust her with full projects to project manage from start to finish.

“I feel very lucky to have got the chance to work with Mia as part of this internship."尼科尔·贝特曼,英国队市场项目经理.

“After six weeks I already feel I am better prepared for my future career” 米娅波特

最后, my advice for any prospective or current 学生 considering an internship or placement opportunity is to go for it! After six weeks I already feel I am better prepared for my future career. My self-confidence has increased tenfold and I am excited to see where it can take me.

If you would like extra guidance or support on securing an internship opportunity, I would highly recommend getting in touch with the 十大正规网赌网址 careers team; 学生期货:

“十大正规网赌网址 Internal Internship Programme has been a great success over the past two years providing in excess of 200 graduates with valuable paid experience.

“对于正规网赌十大排行的许多毕业生来说, the internships have allowed them to develop key skills and acted as a stepping stone into longer term graduate employment.

“Feedback from staff and interns has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to continuing to support our graduates in this way.——Matt Beecroft,学生未来的职业顾问.
