Meet our Work Experience Beard - Eleanor

Say Hello To Our Ninth Intern, Eleanor

My name is Eleanor Stockton, I am currently studying Media in my first year of A Levels and I have a great interest in Marketing. Before my work experience, I had a good understanding of Marketing from studying at Sixth Form and my week as an intern really helped to improve and develop my understanding.

Before my week at Media Beard, I researched the company and they gave off a fun, relaxed and professional vibe which made me excited about my visit. The workplace definitely lived up to my expectation; I had a very fun and effective week with Sarah and Kiran.

On Monday morning Sarah introduced me to everyone and showed me around their quirky building. I was made to feel very welcomed which was nice considering I was nervous about my visit.

I was informed about the different clients Media Beard work with and each client’s brand voice. I learned about the importance of adapting to different brand voices in order to portray each brand effectively on social media.

Throughout my week, I wrote a number of blogs about social media platforms which enhanced my knowledge of social media as a whole. I also used some new platforms like Polyvore which was enjoyable as I was able to bring out my inner fashion designer for a client. All of the tasks I was given were exciting and fresh. Each day, I was excited to come in and learn more about social media marketing.

Sarah and Kiran were both so interactive with me and both contributed to my learning. They gave me a great insight into their job roles and were were always interested in my thoughts on how things could improve, and even took things I said on board!

I found the atmosphere really comfortable – we could discuss anything as colleagues but also as friends which I really appreciated.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Media Beard and would advise anyone interested in this area to intern here! Thank you Media Beard!
