When my tutor first told me that I’d be working in an office for my work experience, I was apprehensive… I didn’t know what to expect! Now, after 2 weeks interning at Impact, I’ve come to understand and love this environment!
During these past two weeks, I’ve been assisting the Office Manager with the Social Media Marketing; overlooking the Twitter and Facebook accounts, while creating and downloading my written content for the company’s blog! Alongside this, I’ve been working closely with each division here at Impact, especially temporary – I loved how fast-paced this specific sector was! Additionally, I was also shown; how to write effective blogging material; answering and screening calls; inputting candidate data into excel; timesheet management; database navigating; as well as completing research into clients and following potential leads!
Because of everyone’s help and guidance, I’ve learnt how to create a good CV; improved my time-keeping/ organisation skills; and developed interviewing techniques (all of which I observed while shadowing teams and candidate interviews). These skills will prove extremely useful for me in the future!
All in all, my time at Impact has been interesting, fun and very helpful! I’ve learnt how to conduct myself in an office environment, and improved my communication skills! From the very start, everyone was so welcoming and friendly; I was made to feel like I was a part of the team, an ‘Impactee’!
Thanks for everything Impact, it’s been amazing!
