TV Marketing Support

The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

WarnerMedia allows for growth in your Year In Industry. They offer a supportive environment which helps interns learn and expand their knowledge while giving you enough autonomy to contribute to projects and increase your confidence in a working environment. During my time working on the HBO side I was able to contribute and lead projects in new job areas including press events while on the Warner Brothers side I expanded my knowledge in different areas and learnt how an international company functions.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

During my entire year I experienced a wide range of tasks and felt that each of them was important to the role of the company. I felt that my colleagues valued my input, comments and opinions in projects and I felt confident enough in my team to express my opinions.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

Management were supportive and checked in with team members on a regular basis. Our personal performance catch-ups were beneficial and I felt that any issues raised were listened to and support was offered.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

For me work came in cyclical ups and downs in the week so being organised was a very useful skill. I had a variety of long term projects and weekly tasks which varied my 'busy-ness' in a work week. I felt that if I became overwhelmed there was an opportunity to raise my concerns and discuss options with my manager who helped me prioritise and help with my workload.

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

During my work year I felt that I had varying roles of responsibility. During my first section of my placement I felt like I had more however I believe the slightly less responsibility in the second half was due to the health situation at the time. However, I do feel that in a 'normal' situation there is the opportunity to ask for more work if this is wanted.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

This placement changed the way that I thought about marketing and helped me choose my dissertation subject. I have learnt skills that I will take through my work life and I highly recommend the experience.
