For the past week I've been coming to Nudge's office in Bristol for work experience and my time here has been very enjoyable and informative. It has helped me realise what it is like in a busy and active workplace and really given me a good idea of what I want to do when I leave school. My placement has given me a real insight into the processes an agency goes through to make great websites on the internet and every app on my phone.
I've spent time in every department over my time here. They have all kept me busy with demonstrations of the things they do in their role and taught me techniques they use on a daily basis, and then getting me to make things myself or giving me tasks which test the skills I've been taught and learnt.
I'm really thankful to everyone who accommodated me in my time here and helped me out as they've taken time out of their busy schedule, or even free time, to let me speak to them about what they do and their experiences in their department.
At Nudge there are 5 departments, namely, Creative, Account & Project Management, Development, Sales and Marketing. I have learnt a lot by working with each department and seeing how they all work together to provide a client with a great website or app, using the client's criteria and requirements and how they implement their ideas and improvements to their projects has been a real eye opener.
I'm back in school next week, however, having had such a good experience this week with digital media here I will be pursuing some web developing in my free time and maybe it will even lead to a career for me in the future. I would like to thank everyone at Nudge Digital who has made my week so interesting and fun!
