I am currently participating in a traineeship in the European Parliament's Terminology Coordination Unit. • Writing insightful and informative posts for the Terminology Coordination Unit’s website on a range of contemporary terminology and translation topics. • Managing the website, using WordPress as a CMS • Managing all social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) and scheduling posts with Crowdfire. • Proof-reading the department’s work before it is published on the website. • Utilising WordPress’s SEO features to promote posts on social media. • Pitching ideas to senior managers. • Analysing statistics.
After graduating, I participated in a internship in London Metropolitan University's press office. Here, I was able to put the skills I learnt throughout my degree into practice in a working environment. • Played a major role in the implementation of a PR campaign, sourcing successful alumni and writing 20+ profile pieces, which were displayed as advertorials in the Metro, the Guardian and the London Evening Standard. I also secured logos from major companies to promote the scheme via a banner design. • Liaised with academics to source valuable and original stories which promote the university’s ethos, courses, facilities and lecturers. • Covered university-based events for press releases and news stories. I recently covered a major political summit, receiving great praise from my line manager for my press release and news story. • Utilised my creative and software skills to design promotional materials which have been displayed throughout the university, engaging both staff and students to attend events or enter competitions. This involved adhering to strict brand guidelines and liaising with senior marketing officers. • Sourced internal and external stories and manipulated code for the student newsletter using Adobe Dreamweaver and HTML. I also made the newsletter appeal more to a student audience by using gifs and emoticons. • Managed the student’s blog. I created and uploaded content, sourced student writers and created interesting and insightful feature pieces about student culture. • Used a content management system to promote courses and faculties, through interesting and inspiring news stories.
One of my final year university modules includes participating in a group magazine project on a theme of our choice. We opted to create a food magazine aimed at students, as we found this to be quite a niche and interesting topic. I volunteered to be chief sub-editor as I have an excellent grasp of grammar, impressive proof reading skills, and extensive knowledge of the defamation system.
One of my second year modules involved running our university’s news magazine. I was given the role of sub-editor due to my excellent grasp of grammar and strong proofreading skills.
My duties consisted of pitching ideas to the music editor, conducting extensive research, and writing one piece a fortnight for VOIX Magazine’s now defunct website.
