Writing and editing articles for the internal digital newsletter that is sent to 36 territories globally. Running social media campaigns for the NBCU International channels and extrapolating data from articles to monitor open rates and comms success. Supporting the wider team in an array of projects including across DEI, CSR and global support.
I've learnt lots of new skills both technical and interpersonal including the management of social media channels and running successful campaigns, and how to run virtual events. All of the experiences I've had have helped to build these skills and my confidence in my role.
I was given a lot of responsibility during my internship which helped massively with developing my skills and confidence. My team were always very supportive and set me up well for me to have ownership over certain projects without feeling overwhelmed. I was always able to have my say and give constructive feedback in group settings, making me feel like a valued member of the team.
A lot! My manager was amazing from day 1, and so was my wider team who I worked with on a daily basis. I always knew I could go to them with any question and I would always receive a useful answer or be guided to where I can find out more information, which also helped me to meet new people across the business. Working virtually, I was still supported massively and had regular catch ups with my manager and team members.
Really great! Everyone is so friendly and more than happy to help with anything, or even tell you more about their role and career journey. It's really easy to network around the company and get to know new people without feeling like you're pestering them. The culture is really great in terms of building new talent and supporting you to be your best professional self.
I absolutely loved it! It exceeded my expectations and has been such a special and memorable year. Joining during the pandemic was a little strange at first but I was instantly able to get involved in so much and so many great initiatives straight away.
Make the most of every experience and really get to know your team and the wider company. You get out of the experience what you put in, so don't hold back!
