I am currently embroiled in the challenging process of looking for an industry placement as part of my degree. I am currently studying for my BSc Business Management & Marketing degree at the University of Sussex. An important part of this search is really understanding what I want from my year in industry. I would like to work within an organisation that is in line with my value system. I am passionate about equality, business ethics and social change. I would like my placement to be in Marketing or involve work that contributes towards social good.
What would my ideal placement look like?
- Social Media (incl. blogging and social media campaigns).
- Copywriting marketing materials
- Strategy (incl. implementation)
- Making a difference (not necessarily a charity/NGO)
- Corporate Social Responsibility and business ethics orientated
- Working with passionate people
I want my placement to help me along my career path by allowing me to gain experience and skills. Furthermore, I do not want to limit myself to Non Profits, as I think all organisations have the power to create change. I am excited to see where my placement year will take me!
