    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • I have to answer all review requests & ensure reviews are syndicating across new and old products. I have to family map products to increase review numbers. I also work on getting our lifestyle content live onto dotcom carousel galleries. We have to brief an agency to upload the relevant assets when they're approved. I also work with the merchandising team to ensure promos are put live on site & takedown once the promo has finished. We help choose asstes & copy for the commercial team and then brief to an agency who does the publishing live onto site. Its very fast paced & promos change everyday so its vital to be organised.

    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • I was given lots of responsibility. I lead reviews within SEUK so have to do a lot of projects & campaigns by myself & figure it out myself with my managers support. I also have the responsibility of making sure reviews syndicate accurately to and from other Samsung subsidiaries & retailers. I also have lots of responsibility with merchandising, as the briefs we create go live on site for all customers to see. We have to choose appropriate assets & make sure the information provided is correct and not misleading to any customers.

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • I received a lot of support and guidance during my placement. I learnt something new from everyone I worked with and received help whenever it was asked. They also provided me with relevant training where necessary e.g. excel to make sure I was guided & supported during my job. I also received relevant handovers from the person doing my job before me so I wasn't thrown in the deep end and knew where to start my job.

    Culture

  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • The company culture was very mixed with Korean culture and English culture. There is more of hierarchical culture with my Korean colleagues. Less so within the English culture. I felt like I could approach the director and he would listen to my opinions. I always felt listened to and valued despite being the placement & working virtually. The general atmosphere was very friendly and everyone was extremely nice and kind to me. It was a very nice atmosphere / environment to work in

  • I really enjoyed my placement. I gained so much value from working with some amazing people & learnt so much more about the business / marketing. I would love to come back on the graduate scheme or as a starting position. I felt the business really looked after me and its colleagues, even though we were working from home during the pandemic. Despite, working from home I thoroughly enjoyed the placement & really enjoyed the work. It didn't feel like a dread to start work, I actually really looked forward to it as everyday was different
