I can’t believe I’m actually having to write my leavers blog and that my year at Experience Days as the Marketing Assistant and Experience Reviewer is now officially over. It’s been an incredible year – even that is an understatement! A year ago, when I got offered this job for my placement year, I never expected that I would get the opportunity to try out soo many amazing experiences, from bungee jumping, a helicopter tour, quad biking, jet skiing, 4x4 driving, yoga in The Shard just to name a few. I have also worked with a fantastic team of very bubbly people and have found that the office environment has always been great fun.
Since beginning our placement with Experience Days in June, we have visited a record number of suppliers: 56 to be exact! Having become really good friends, we didn’t mind the long road trips if that meant we were able to help suppliers with their marketing to encourage sales. Another perk of our job is being able to take part in the experiences ourselves in order to get video footage and photos for the website. From stand up paddleboarding in Brighton, to sheepdog training in Leicestershire, to tubing down the River Tummel in Scotland, our year has been action-packed with so many amazing memories. Read on to find out what we got up to.
56 weeks and 56 experiences later, my placement year with Experience Days has come to an end! What an incredible adventure it has been, having the opportunity to work as a marketing assistant in industry, taking part in unique experiences, and of course meeting my lovely office family.
