Introducing Communications Whizzkid!

Posted on

So today was the first day of my six-week work experience placement at Cre8ive Wisdom. Honestly, I was a little bit nervous! But Neil, Wendy and Steph are all really friendly and made me feel very welcome : )

This morning I wrote a press release about me joining the team and attempted to gain more followers for the recruitment agency Bond Williams’ twitter account. I also started putting together some ideas for a new sleep story for clients Leggett and Platt. Along with various bits and bobs I’ll be assisting the team with, I’ve been given my own personal six-week project which I’ll be getting stuck into!

To become a true member of the team I needed to have a ‘CW’ name, so I’m now known as the  Communications Whizzkid… and I have my very own company email address!

At midday, I took a break with Steph and walked along the seafront in the sunshine to Boscombe Pier and back. It was lovely but I made a mistake wearing shoes I haven’t worn for a long while and now have huge blisters on both my little toes! : (

In the afternoon the Cre8ive Wisdom team took a stroll down to the seafront again to take some individual and team photos. As much as I dislike my photo taken, it was a bit of a giggle, and nice to be out in the gorgeous weather again!

After my first full-time day for a long time, I am completely knackered – but looking forward to the next six weeks! : )

Twitter: Why do we use it?

Posted on

If you choose ‘Other’, please elaborate in a comment on the blog post : ) thank you!

I’ve been a member of Twitter for quite a while now – long enough to manage 1,788 tweets.

My tweets mainly consist of random blurts of useless information, how I’m feeling, what I’m up to etcetc. However I like to use Twitter to share interesting links, news and blogs.

The famous Twitter 'fail whale'

My following list is at 140… I try to keep it fairly low so I can actually keep up (I always have at least 5 new tweets every couple of minutes ÜberTwitter refreshes on the BlackBerry! – It can be fairly time consuming to go get up-to-date when I haven’t checked it for a few hours!)

The list of those I follow consists of friends, randomers – around Bournemouth and elsewhere, celebrities, big bloggers and a fair few within the marketing, PR and social media industries.

I think I’d say my own main use of Twitter is to keep up with current affairs, general news but mainly within the media world – the world in which I’m aiming for a career.
