Role Description

Helping manage and plan all Owned Media for the company acorss all Media platforms and Lines of Businesses.

    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I loved it. I got to live the dream while at Disney and I felt like they gave me much more responsibilities that a regular intern would get. It was very fun and everyday there was something new I had to face.

    5/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Very valued, as stated above, I was given so much responsibilities that some projects/tasks depended on me to keep going smoothly.

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Weekly catch ups and 1:1s with my manager really helped; in addition to them being very approachable, as was the rest of my team.

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Some days more that others but since I thought of myself as proactive, I always had something to do.

    5/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I think I learned more in this one year as an intern at Disney than I did in 2 years of my degree prior to it. Putting everything into a practical sense really helped me learn and do things correctly and with a lot of creativity.
