As an intern and administrative assistant here at Network Marketing there are loads of opportunities to do different things so last week I assisted Jonathan Hirst in representing Network Marketing, at the Tadcaster Grammar School Careers Fair. Our job was to help the students to understand a bit more about the world of work and discuss careers in marketing and marketing recruitment. So with a designated stand, branded Frisbees and expert knowledge on hand, we set out to entice students with the allure of working in these fast-paced industries. Fortunately the cold weather didn’t deter over three hundred students from attending the event. All were quick to engage and ask relevant questions on further education choices, routes to recruitment or marketing and the value of work experience. As a student at the school, it was fantastic to see such a huge range of young people, with a multitude of future career paths ready to discuss. Even as a highly specialised business, our background allowed us to discuss everything from recruitment, to advertising, web-development and art design (looking over to our sister company, The Book). Jonathan Hirst offered some wise words, suggesting individuals should play to their strengths; deciding whether they preferred short or long term projects and thinking about jobs that mirrored their preferred working style. For example, product design has a longer-term trajectory for projects, than a sales job with monthly targets. Tadcaster Grammar hosted a fantastic event, which we’re excited about supporting again in the future. If you’re interested in finding out more about your route to recruitment or marketing opportunities, please contact us.
