Becky Rose joined Three Sixty Media around the middle of October as a work experience student. After being with us for two weeks, she shares how she came to us and what she has learned so far:
“After finishing my Biochemistry degree at the University of York and moving back home to Derby, I was really keen to use my skills in a commercial and design environment, whilst gaining experience within a marketing agency," commented Becky.
"Whilst this might seem like a strange leap, I have previously worked as a Social Media and Marketing Assistant for Books for Amnesty York, and surprisingly, my biochemistry degree initially sparked the idea to pursue marketing."
"Becky added: "As part of my degree, there was a Dragons Den-type module, during which I had to work as part of a team to design and create a business plan for a new biotechnology product. Although the product itself wasn’t too exciting (an enzyme-based drain cleaner!) I thoroughly enjoyed creating the branding and marketing strategy."
"My previous experiences have broadened my horizons and I hope to fuse my biochemistry knowledge and marketing experience going forward."
"With the idea to pursue marketing, and to build on my design and brand skills, I contacted Three Sixty Media shortly after graduating from university in the hope of gaining some real work experience."
"Three Sixty have given me the opportunity to join their team and since mid-October I have already been involved in a variety of projects including writing blogs and performing competitor analysis."
"Whilst I loved my Biochemistry degree, I could not see a future within a laboratory environment, and already in the short time I've been with Three Sixty Media it has been really exciting and I cannot wait to see what the future holds,” added Becky.
