It has been 4 weeks since Anne Lise joined us for a marketing placement from Glasgow Caledonian University. We’ve really enjoyed having her in the office and would like to take the opportunity to say thanks for all the hard work that was put in and to question her over her placement!
It’s not the last we will see of Anne Lise though as she will be helping to complete some research we are in the process of carrying out and there is a possibility of her coming back to work for us again in the very near future. Keep an eye out on this blog for more information on that…
So, thank you very much Anne Lise, we hope you had a great time at PoLR and good luck with the rest of your University course.
1) Firstly, what were you hoping to gain from the work experience and do you think you got this?
I wanted to discover and learn main tasks made by a web marketing company, such as promotion of customers websites on internet and web design.
Yes, I have reached my personal objectives, it s true during my work placement my work was principally the promotion of websites but I have also been
involved in web design through the possibility to update a website.
2) What industry terms that stick in your mind for causing the most confusion in you first few weeks?
SEO, the first week!
3) What jobs did you like and dislike?
I liked to create articles, blogs, links that is to say promotion of websites and also I liked when there is a brainstorming in the company because all members of the company can give its ideas and opinions. Moreover, it is helpful and interesting when you can meet the customer because you can understand better that he wishes for his website.
On the other hand, I didn’t like too much when you must check if all websites where you have submitted links were accepted, it can be very long.
4) Is there anything you wish you could have done?
Communication with customers and take part more to the web design.
5) On the whole, what have you gained the most from this experience?
I gained principally different methods to promote a customer website on a web so as to increase the traffic.
And a cheeky wee 6th question in relation to your farewell drink tonight : What’s the first beer you want tonight!?
GUINNESS!!!!!! So, Thanks to PoLR team, it was a great work placement!!
