Our latest post is by Beth Bradley, a Marketing Management student who sourced her own placement with a company based near to her home town. Read on to learn how Beth has settled in to placement life.
When I first started my placement, I wasn’t sure what to expect as it was in an industry I had very little or no knowledge about whatsoever.
I got a placement within the car and van rental and sales industry back in my home town, and when I first started I had no idea about any vans other than a Ford Transit.
The second week I was in the office, I was taught how to drive vans, as well as all my other jobs I had to do. Being the only marketing executive in the office, and with them never having a marketer before, I had to work extremely hard to be able to push the business forward and apply the knowledge of business management systems and marketing that I had learned in the first two years at Uni.
