Work Experience in the SecsintheCity Marketing Team: Week 2
At my final week at SecsintheCity, I was given the responsibility of working on, and promoting SecsintheCity's upcoming event – the PA of the Year Awards. This consisted of scheduling social media activity on platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
During the week, I have continued to use the CMS to upload blogs. In addition, I have been building salary surveys for all three of TMDR's brands on a questionnaire design programme called Riddle. The team and I faced some hurdles during the creation of the survey, however to overcome these issues we had to liaise with the Riddle team who valued our feedback and potential changes.
Some other interesting parts of my final week consisted of creating a follow up blog after massage experts, Return to Glory came to the SITC offices to provide ten minute massages to the team. I created a follow up article including images and relevant links (and I even squeezed in a massage myself during this time!).
Also during the week, myself and Jessica (Brand Manager of SecsintheCity), attended The Meetings Show, where we travelled to Kensington Olympia to discuss and network with potential host venues for future events. It was a really interesting experience to network with suppliers and understand how the brand's events are organised.
This work experience placement has given me a valuable insight into how an organisation is run and understanding of day to day tasks which I know I will be able to transfer into my following career.
I have really enjoyed my two week experience at SecsintheCity and hope to keep in touch with the team. For now, I start my job search!
