My first week at Innovation Visual

Posted by Emily on 15-Sep-2017 11:15:00

My name is Emily and I am excited to announce that I am the newest addition to the Innovation Visual team. 

What Do You Need To Know About Me?

Earlier on this year; after successfully completing my fair share of full-time education and leaving Farnborough Sixth Form College, I had to make the big decision whether or not to go to University. I was destined to study graphic design at the University of The Arts in London. However, after contemplating my options, I decided to start looking into the world of apprenticeships and what they could offer me instead of going to university.

I started to actively research the marketing sector and began to unearth terms such as SEO and Paid Search. After acquiring a basic knowledge of the digital marketing sector and feeling confident that this was the avenue I wanted to pursue I decided to apply for digital marketing apprenticeships.

I soon found myself in the meeting room of Innovation Visual’s brand-new offices sat across from Tim. The interview went well and Tim invited me to come and do a taster day at the office, where I was set a number of tasks and began to understand more about how the business operated.  I was then delighted to hear that Innovation Visual wanted me to join the team!

I was made to feel welcome from the get-go and the team were so kind and attentive. Immediately I felt drawn to the company and was eager to become part of the team, which became a reality when Tim offered me the job!

Completing Week 1

I arrived at the office for my first day and was greeted by Tim and the team with some welcome gifts including my very own Innovation Visual branded mug. I started off my first week in a virtual classroom provided by Highbury College, Portsmouth. This is a key part of my apprenticeship and I kicked off my first module learning about HTML5 and CSS, which are essential in the process of website development. I found that learning, as well as working, is more suited to me and with the working environment that Tim has created, I am finding this very enjoyable.

I felt included in the team straight away, sitting in on meetings and understanding more about the company as the week progressed. Even in my first week I already feel I have learned so much by being around the team and through participating in a virtual level 3 digital marketing course.

What’s Next For Me?

I am looking forward to continuing my apprenticeship with my main focus being to continue developing my skills and to become more involved in all aspects of digital marketing. Innovation Visual is a full Google Partner meaning I have access to the Google study guides for the AdWords exams to progress and develop my skills alongside my level 3 digital marketing Course.

One of the many reasons I wanted to work for Innovation Visual was due to the opportunities available to develop and train on the job. I am very grateful to Innovation Visual for providing me with a platform that will allow me to develop and flourish professionally. I can’t wait to get stuck in and start my digital marketing journey!
