My work experience at Refresh PR with Digital Her



We had sixth form student, Alice, at Refresh PR this week to get some experience in social media and digital comms. This is what she had to say about her placement:

Today my work experience at Refresh comes to a close with my last day here. I’ve had an amazing time that has definitely helped me to see what career I want in the future. Everyone here has been so kind and welcoming; I’ll definitely miss it! During this week I’ve been working my way through a number of tasks. These have included taking over the Refresh social channels, planning Twitter content for a couple of Refresh’s clients as well as completing an audit of the Refresh social media channels. It’s been really interesting to see how social media is used for clients in the business world which has given me real life insight in the sector I’d love to have a career in.
On Monday morning I wasn’t 100% what to expect, I already had my timetable for the week so had an idea of my tasks each day but I was stepping into a world that was completely new to me. Now, at the end of the week, I can safely say it has exceeded all my expectations. The whole experience from commuting into Manchester each day to siting around the table with the rest of the team for a training session has been as much of an exciting part of my week as the jobs I was working through. This week has given me so much knowledge and experience of the type of career I would like in the future that can’t always be learned sat behind a desk at school.

One of my favourite parts of this week has been completing the social media audit. Being able to present my own views on how the Refresh social channels could be improved was really fun and exciting. As part of this I drew upon examples from other brands and PR agencies which gave a wider view of how social media is used by different businesses. This task allowed me to use my existing passion for social media in a way relevant to Refresh. As a result, my experience has now gone beyond using just my personal Instagram and Twitter accounts making it now more relevant to my future (fingers crossed) with social media in the business world.

Obviously, my work experience wouldn’t be possible without everyone here at Refresh but they have made it a truly fantastic time. It was with the help of Manchester digital that my time here was arranged as part of their Digital Her work experience. I’m so grateful for this opportunity and I’m definitely going to keep in touch with everyone at Refresh!
