Starting late last year I begun working with two musical artists in setting up their social media presence online. Applying the knowledge that I have attained in my higher education in promotional media I have been working with the artists to create the persona they wish to present across social media. Focusing on platforms such as Instagram and Facebook, I have been collecting and editing videos, pictures, and sound clips to design captivating, honest, and raw representations of the two artists. They are both projects that I have put a great amount of dedication and time into, spending any free time that I have when not studying towards my masters in creating and promoting the artists.
Internship that lasted 6 weeks. Responsibilities included: - Liaising with, and answering enquiries from media, individuals and other organisations, often via telephone and email - Researching, writing and distributing press releases to targeted media - Preparing and supervising the production of publicity brochures, handouts, direct mail leaflets, promotional videos, photographs, films and multimedia programmes - Doing morning papers daily, this involved highlighting and scanning any media coverage of clients, and also pointing out any potential opportunities for media coverage - In charge of organising all press deliveries, including booking and tracking courier services and ensuring all deliveries are received in a timely manner
This job was during my last and most stressful year of full time education, which meant balancing working part-time, whilst trying to write my dissertation, and make time for my personal life, and therefore taught me to structure my life so that my stress levels actually decreased, and I became more comfortable dealing with tasks under pressure. Being in customer service, this job also helped me gain confidence with my interpersonal skills and has taught me the polite and even-tempered form of communication needed when dealing with clients.
