Before my first day at Direct Air I was unsure of what to expect and quite nervous, but as soon as I walked in, I felt very welcomed by all of what I can only describe to be very friendly staff who were all willing to help me.
On arrival I was shown a very well-organised timetable for the rest of my week and I was able to choose the tasks of which I was most interested in doing. Throughout this week of work experience I have learnt how to schedule social media posts, obtain and gather valuable business information and input it into a spreadsheet as well as learning how different websites can also help to obtain valuable statistics and information.
I enjoyed every task I was given, purely because it was very well explained to me and I was encouraged to ask questions about anything I may not have understood, which is what made this week so enjoyable.
All in all, this was a very interesting week with plenty of opportunities to learn something new and get involved. As I have previously said, this week has also encouraged me to look more deeply into pursuing a career in marketing.
From my experience at Direct Air this is a very professionally run family business with a friendly work environment. As a whole, I have really enjoyed this work experience placement and I would definitely recommend it.
