For One Week Only...
I am Jen, an English student in pursuit of work experience and a prolific tea and coffee maker. I had the pleasure of working at PE in the past and I’ve returned five years on to see what’s on offer this time round. Also I’m here to see, of course, what I can offer in return.
Today I’ve started work on a website project for a company dealing in building technology and electrics. Through some research (building technology is not an industry I am familiar with in honesty) I have been creating concise yet appealing overviews of the services the company provides.
If all goes well, the statements I have produced will accompany images to become interactive shortcuts on the home page of a renovated website.
Creating copy for websites is an interesting way of combining English skills with marketing; from my degree I have an idea of what makes text appealing and it has been insightful to actually apply these skills to the workplace.
It is reassuring to know that the degree I have chosen to study has its worth to the career path I wish to take.
I can sometimes feel out of my depth with marketing terms and technology though overcoming shortcomings is what work experience is all about. I am sure that as the days go by, I will feel confident in the work I have produced.
I will be keeping you up to date on the progress of the project and my musings for the day!
