I found the B-Hive experience exciting. Not many people would probably say that but it was such a good opportunity and a lot of fun. I came out of my presentation practically skipping! The brief was nice as it was a company id never heard of which made my research a lot more in-depth as I really did need to understand the company. From start to finish everyone involved was lovely. I liked that it was outside of Uni too, as you were up against people you didn’t know. If I could go back and do it again would I? Most definitely.
It gives you industry knowledge as well as experience. It's important to be around people that are talking ‘Marketing’ you pick things up that maybe you wouldn’t be taught at uni. What was nice was that I’ve done two placements and identifying the difference between how things worked was interesting. Having the ability change your language to suit the different target audiences was actually harder than I imagined. As the placements were in different industries too its really given me a lot of knowledge. I wasn’t aware of how different Marketing in different industries is, so this ables me when looking for jobs in the future to be more aware of the job roles.
