A few examples of tasks to do daily are: Excel data work, inputting deals into salesforce, communicating with external digital accounts, as well as a lot of internal communication with a variety of other teams in Home Entertainment. Ultimately you are assisting the digital sales team with maximising sales of all of our content through promotions and partner support, both catalogue and new release.
- Excel proficiency has improved. - Salesforce software proficiency. - Overall confidence in communicating both internally and externally - Time management - Numerical skills (pulling and analysing sales reports) - Attention to detail
The responsibility you are given in this role is fantastic. As long as you are working to deliver your work and complete your tasks on time, you are given a lot of additional projects to work on, for example promotional campaigns, or account-specific activations. A lot of the work you do will be assisting the team with their accounts too, making sure everything is set up correctly across the board.
Both the Digital Sales team and the wider WarnerMedia team were unbelievably supportive when onboarding. The training is thorough and no question is a silly one - I felt immediately comfortable in the company and it meant that asking for help was greatly encouraged, so when needing guidance on anything everyone is very happy to help.
Across the board, the WarnerMedia culture is a hard working one, yet everyone seems to absolutely love what they are doing. The nature of the industry provides fresh new content, so the excitement of the staff matches that of the consumer. Working in such a large scale company also exposes you to the many functions that contribute to the end result and the best of film and TV - each teams work is just amazing.
I strongly recommend a placement at WarnerMedia, and I have enjoyed my internship every step of the way.
For anyone with a passion for Film and TV, this adds an extra layer of excitement to the sales role, as it's more exciting when you love the content you're selling. When applying to WarnerMedia, you must prove that you are up for a challenge, as the work load in the role can be very fast-paced. Due to the amount of roles WM offer, do your research too as they are all different!
