"For everyone in my year at school, work experience was a very anticipated event. For each individual, the week before we went out on placement was different. Some people were curious others were scared. I was a very uncomfortable mixture of both which, as I’m sure you can imagine, wasn’t ideal!
As expected, the morning before my first day of work experience was, to put it simply, terrifying. However as soon as I walked into the PDMS office I was greeted with smiles and it was unbelievingly reassuring. Everyone was incredibly kind and it was a real pleasure to be able to work alongside them. I was given my own desk and that’s all it took to make me excited for the week ahead. The morning, despite slight technical problems, went smoothly and as the week progressed I grew in confidence and enthusiasm. The tasks were neither too hard or too easy and gave me a true taste of what working in marketing would be like. It was nearly impossible to get bored as with each day there was a new task to look forward to. One day I was writing an article, the next I was making spreadsheets. To say that I learned a lot would be an understatement; I learnt, I experienced and I became more aware than ever that marketing is a potential career choice for me.
Without a doubt my placement was everything it was supposed to be, if not more. It was eye opening and I learnt so much. I couldn’t have had a better work experience as PDMS was nothing short of incredible and I will miss coming here to work more than I ever thought I would."
