We got a job
In my first week, I had a lot of freedom to create and produce work of my own that was to be used in the marketing and even creation of future brands. Due to this I have a whole load of work that I can use on my portfolio which will help me pursue creative jobs in the future.
In my first week, I really enjoyed sharing with people, ability to express and discuss my ideas and gain some skills in the workplace. I have learned to always work hard, not limit yourself, always find new ideas.
In my first week, I loved my work experience which helped me get a job. I learned how to listen to feedback and carefully reflect on ideas, and always do things with grace.

A work experience is a temporary position that helps people who are looking for a permanent position in a particular field to learn the essential skills they need to enter that field.
Research the fields you have interest in and connect with as many people involved as possible. These professionals can act as great mentors and role models and are often more than happy to share their learnings and experience. Platforms such as our digital embassy and get a job schemes are a great way to bring this to life.
It’s all about putting yourself out there - approaching companies with a showcase of your skills and attributes, whether this be through a video cv or …, will make you stand out from the crowd. If they offer you an interview, make sure to research the company and evaluate how your strengths would apply to the exact company and the role.
An internship is like a trial of a product - but of employment. The organisation will train you in the field of your choice, allowing you to gain experience, build a network and have access to new and exciting opportunities that can boost your professional portfolio when entering your career. This will give you a chance to decide whether this is the right industry for you and is also an opportunity for you to prove to the company that you have the approach and attitude that they are looking for to take you on full time.
The organisation you will join gets to decide the length of your internship, it varies from one organisation to another. However, internships can last between 3 months and 1 year.
Doing an internship has many benefits. You will learn new skills, work with professionals in the domain you are interested in and start building your network. It is a good way to figure out what you really enjoy doing and therefore what career would be the best fit for you.

Alongside working in the role, you will also spend time studying so that you have a wider understanding of the industry. When completed, you are often offered a full time job by the employer or a qualification that can be used to help you get to the next step in your career.
It lasts from one up to 4 years.
When you find an apprenticeship you like, make sure you tailor your cover letter so it fits and is specific for the role you're applying for.
