At MEB Total, a mechanical and electrical building services company, I also developed a social media strategy to help boost sales and recognition for the business. I believe that the skills I have learned whilst at the company will allow me to adjust to the role effectively as it has taught me to keep to deadlines. It has also taught me to use my own initiative and given me practical knowledge of how to use social media as a marketing tool and expanded on my knowledge of how to make promotional material.
During my second year of university I carried out work experience with Mansfield 103.2 as a production assistant. Once a week I would work at the station pre-recording shows, carrying out competitions and assisting presenters on air. During this time I became proficient in driving a desk, using Adobe auditon, and using soundcloud and other social media.
In this degree I achieved a 2.1 and during the time I was at university I learned many skills. These include: - How to write accurate and engaging copy within a deadline. - How to produce and edit video that is interesting and informative within a given timescale. - How to translate written, audio and video work into a format sutible for a website. - SEO and using social media to promote content.
This award is presented every year to the show which has the highest rating, best produced and best presented show throughout the student radio station (D:one). In my first year of university I and a co-presenter won the award for our Rock and Metal show. My role in the show was to produce and organise content, promote and present the show.
