Emily joins theEword as part of a three-month placement in conjunction with the Manchester Masters scheme. Here, she talks to us about online marketing, Manchester nightlife and her fondness for walruses.
Hello Emily. You seem very cheerful.
Thanks. How are you?
We're dandy. So, what do you do here at theEword?
I'm here for three months as part of the Manchester Masters scheme. I'm working with Mark Baker (online marketing manager) on a range of different PPC campaigns.
How are you finding it so far?
I love it. This is my first time dealing with online marketing campaigns, so I'm orientating myself with the whole process.
Is Mark a good teacher?
Good to hear it. So, what were your first impressions of theEword?
You're all a friendly bunch, aren't you?
Our sunny disposition notwithstanding, are you enjoying your time here?
Very much so. This is my third placement of the scheme and I'm eager to learn new things, particularly in such an exciting sector. I'm looking for this scheme to give me an introduction to different professions and offer me the chance to shape my future career choices.
Happy to have you on board. So what do you do outside of work?
Study for my master's degree in business mainly. I do it all in my free time.
Gosh. Do you get any time for fun?
Plenty. The Manchester Masters scheme gives me a flat in the Northern Quarter, so I'm having a lot of fun exploring the city centre. I love the nightlife there, particularly Walrus Bar.
Speaking of which, if you had a Walrus, what would you call it?
Albert. It's a pretty name.
