I first came across Orange Juice Communications during a meeting with Dan, the director of the company, about successfully winning a place in the final of the Subway Challenge. He gave me his card and I contacted him with the view of work experience at his company.
I have always had a keen interesting in marketing and advertising therefore I figured Orange Juice would be a very good company for me to secure some work experience at.
I hoped that the experience would allow me to broaden my knowledge and experience of PR, social media and marketing and it did just that. I have gained a lot more knowledge on these topics and have also had some insight into running your own small business in this field.
A work experience placement will often help you decide whether or not that job is the right job for you, after all some people walk away with the observation that it isn’t for them, I now know that this is the career path I want to take.
I am hoping to go to university next year and feel this experience has allowed me to be more prepared for what will come and also more prepared me for a future job I may land in marketing.
