Marketing Assistant
Why did you decide to do a placement/internship?

I decided to do a placement after my Masters because I wanted to experience the UK work culture as an international student, and build experience in the development sector where I aim to build my career.

How did you find your placement/internship?

Main responsibilities

My main responsibilities were to lead social media marketing for the Yorkshire Chocolate Festival for Roundabout, Sheffield. This included tasks ranging from designing and editing content to audience engagement and interaction.

Typical day

On a typical day, I would begin with a short briefing with my supervisor to plan content for the week, design posts and stories for social media, schedule the posts and plan marketing campaigns to engage the audience as well as increase ticket sales for the Yorkshire Chocolate Festival.

Advice to students

My piece of advice to students

Be open to learning, and take time to build a good relationship with your supervisor/s and team. If you are proactive in the kind of work you want to do through the internship, you'll surely get the space to utilise your hours to the most.
