Work experience round up!

22nd March 2013 By Louise Stephens in News

I can safely say I have enjoyed my work experience at little green plane. I have met some fantastic people, learnt so much, and done some great work. The fantastic staff have created a great working atmosphere at the office which was so easy to go into. My month placement at little green plane & Intineris has surpassed my expectations, I can not recommend it highly enough for anyone seeking experience in design/marketing. 

I have had many great moments whilst on my work experience. A few particular highlights of mine are going to West Suffolk College with Louise to do a university lecture. I particularly enjoyed this as the lecture was in my chosen subject for University next year so gave me an insight on what a lecture is like. In terms of office work I had many great tasks. My favourite would be helping meet a website deadline by assisting with copy input and design changes. A final highlight of mine would be ending my final week by assisting Louise at her Grow your Business seminar in Norwich. It was another fantastic opportunity to interact with a variety of different business people. The feedback we received from the audience at the event was brilliant and made me proud to be part of it. 

This work experience has given me a great understanding of what working life is like. Being in an office is very different to anything I have experienced so far.  Whilst at little green plane I have thought about the career I would like to go in to after University, I am strongly considering a marketing career due to a fantastic experience here at little green plane. Before starting my work experience I had virtually no knowledge on email & digital marketing. I feel now I could comfortably explain what they are and how little green plane & Itineris use them to satisfy their clients. This month I have spent a lot of time going to different events with Louise. Through the sales training she has provided me with and by watching Louise in real life situations I feel my customer Interaction has improved hugely.

Now my placement is ending I will be returning to Suffolk one sixth form, to finish my course in entrepreneurship & enterprise. Providing I achieve the grades I need in September I will be going to Portsmouth University, studying business management. I would like to thank everyone at Itineris & little green plane for a great work experience and everything they have taught me. I plan to keep in touch with the company to find out how everyone is doing.

Good luck Ramiel!
