I was tasked with greeting and speaking to potential students whilst promoting the University and my course at open days, UCAS events and similar functions. I was also required at times to help the marketing department with admin tasks.
Whilst working here my skills in bartending and customer service improved immensely. I was also able to receive basic cocktail training and I also learnt how to deal with challenges that arose whilst working in a busy environment and under pressure.
I graduated with an Upper Second (2:1) and whilst studying here, I have gained invaluable knowledge in creating films from the pre-production to post-production. This course required me to use my creative thinking skills to create several films and helped me improve my ability to work efficiently in a team. Though I specialise in screenwriting, I have worked in the production design department, where I was required to use my creative skills to create costumes and makeup looks, and I have also worked as a student producer on several short films, which allowed me to build up my organisational and leadership skills. The skills I have gained as a filmmaker can be applied to other creative fields.
