In the afternoon, we went to Brasserie Blanc, which is the new venue for Beaujolais, which will be on the 21st of November. This brand-new venue is situated near Liverpool street and Bank tube stations for convenient transport. There will be a roulette table, and everyone is excited for the cheese and wine! A well-deserved treat to celebrate all their hard work.
On Friday, we brought some treats into the office as a thank you for our time here and everything we have learnt but, the work wasn't over. The pair of us began planning out banner designs for future events before Maria carried on with the newsletter and Ciaran working on InDesign. Our last day also meant our final lunchtime interview, this time with the technical team...
All of the Tech team had very logical mindsets which compliments their job titles. Ram made it apparent that you should always know how to prioritise if you want to organise your time well and stay on task and was happy in his job due to the atmosphere; office humour/ banter. Hubshare also has lots of benefits that makes work easier, for example the file sharing component. Paul seemed very committed to Hubshare and we found out he has been here for the longest out of the tech team. Simon believes that solving issues with actions rather than words was very important and stressed that he enjoyed being challenged... We also found out he makes remote controlled tanks!
Advice from IT team
1. Get good exposure
2. Take experience in and always try to increase it
3. Always remember you are representing a company in everything you do
All in all, working at Hubshare for a week has been rewarding and insightful and it's been great being able to not only meet new people and find out a bit about what they do but, also have a taster into the world of work. I would strongly recommend others to work at Hubshare and to go into Sales and Marketing. Rebecca has been a huge influence on us and our time at Hubshare. She has made the work challenging but, motivating every day and were both very thankful to everyone in the office for being so welcoming and nice everyday. We also appreciate the way that Rebecca has taken a lot of her time to teach us how to use different programs.
Thank you to everyone!
Maria“Upon arriving to work at Hubshare for work experience I did not expect to enjoy it this much but, the work in advertising and marketing has proven to be validating and enthusing. Everyone brings a cheery attitude to the office all in all creating a welcoming atmosphere. Damian giving the office doughnuts also, probably contributes to everyone being cheery… Working at Hubshare for a week has taught me a lot more about the company itself as well as new skills that I will find useful in the future (such as Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Doodly, Social Media Marketing, Mail Chimp and Word Press).”
Ciaran“Before my 4 days at Hubshare I did not believe that my time would be as fun as it has been, this is because there is no aspect which makes the day go slow and on the whole I believe that Hubshare is a brilliant place to work. Before doing work experience I did not have a clue on what I wanted to get into but having this insight into marketing and sales has made me very intrigued, and I want to learn more. I have found the work quite enjoyable, whilst covering all aspects. One last thing to add would be that when I walked in on the first day everyone that I met was very polite, very welcoming, and there is always a joke or a bit of laughter whilst everyone is finishing their work.”
