When my teacher first told me about my Internship at Impact, I remember feeling nervous… but also excited! This program would be my first EVER work experience, so in all honesty… I didn’t really know what to expect! As my Internship comes to an end, I reflect on everything I’ve learnt; and I can truly say… it’s been a life-changing experience!

On my first day at the company, I was given an insight into the Recruitment world; what they do; and the deets’ behind all of the divisions at Impact! As the week progressed, I was given further exposure into the creative world from; in-depth research into their Media clients; as well as the amazing work they’ve done! In addition, I had the opportunity to work closely with the other Impactee’s; to see how the recruitment process worked; what they look for in CV’S; and the advice/ support given to their candidates!

Now for the creative fun…! While assisting the Office Manager, I created and designed job posts (with the use of Canva), which I then posted to their Social Media accounts! In reference to this, I was shown the insight into the company’s Marketing, and the strategies behind it!

Impact has taught me a lot over the past two weeks… I’m talking: Communication skills; time-management; organisation; and the exposure into my inner creative-self!

All in all, this experience has been a total eye opener! Before Impact, I didn’t know anything about Recruitment, or about roles such as: UX Designers/ Architects etc! I’ve gained a lot of knowledge, while having so much fun! From the very start, they’ve helped me through everything, as well as being so welcoming and friendly! I will forever be grateful to every one of you IMPACT!!
