Following her 2nd year at Leicester University, Yasmin was keen to get some experience in PR and Marketing so reached out to Astley Media. Here’s what she had to say about her experience…
With my 3rd year at Leicester University approaching, I knew I’d have to make some decisions about my future career. PR and marketing is something that has always appealed to me, but was something I knew very little about. I was lucky enough to come across Astley Media’s website when I was searching for a summer internship, and after reading previous intern blogs, I applied and was offered work experience as an intern.
Despite only being there for 2 weeks, everyone in the office made sure I felt at home and were keen to guide me through plenty of interesting tasks. I truly felt like part of the team, and learnt so many valuable things during my short time there. I was given the opportunity to write newsletters for clients, draft posts for social media platforms, research event planning information, and the list goes on.
I’d like to say a huge thank you to the whole team who were an absolute delight to work alongside, and for teaching me so much in the little time I was there! It was an extremely valuable experience.
