Student Placement Insight: A Week With The Marketing Team
My week-long placement within the marketing team at P&J Live was a great experience. Over the course of seven insightful days, I shadowed the Marketing Team and discovered all the tasks they undertake on a day-to-day basis. The staff have shared an overview of their jobs, and gave me an insight into everything that happens at with marketing and communication at P&J Live.
The team explained to me how they advertise all the concerts and exhibitions at P&J Live, as well as how they announce events, and market the conference, associations, banqueting and meetings side of the venue. I had the chance to try out the job for myself, which was not only exciting, but also helped me to have a real understanding of what they do.
I discovered how to market the overall brand of P&J Live and learned how to use marketing softwares, including hands-on use of social media posts scheduling for the week and how to create email campaigns too!
This work placement gave me a real-life experience, which few people get to have through school now. Because of this I am incredibly grateful to have been offered this opportunity. It has helped me to understand at an earlier stage if this is an industry I want to go into, and what I can work towards!
My experience was excellent as all the staff treated me as if I were a part of the team They were very motivating and encouraged me to join in. Everyone was open to any questions I had about the job and even invited me to join meetings with them! The meetings I joined gave me a fantastic insight into how they organise large scale events.
Overall, I had an amazing time working at P&J Live for the week, I gained valuable skills that I can use in future work opportunities.
