Last week we met our new Marketing Coordinators Tara and Lorenzo. Today we welcome our new Interns Hannah and Jess to the Paperclip family...
What made you apply to our Internship programme?
Hannah: After completing an earlier work experience programme in marketing, I became really interested in the field and wanted to learn more. I found Paperclip and was really interested in the company. I saw that they were looking for a marketing intern so I applied straightaway!
Jess: My degree requires me to complete a work-based placement and I wanted to gain more experience as I really want to work in marketing after finishing university.
What have you been doing prior to your placement?
Hannah: I ’m currently a final year student at Cardiff University studying English Literature. I’ve always loved literature and reading between the lines so this course was perfect for me and has set me up with some great skills that I can take with me for future jobs.
Jess: I am currently studying Journalism at the University of South Wales The course has given me a broad insight into the media industry and has set me with many skills. My journey into discovering marketing was when I applied for Cardiff TV, expecting to create hard news stories, instead I was given a lot more promotional work. I was covering events happening in Cardiff from Charities to entertainment and I thoroughly enjoyed promoting organisations and people’s message.
What do you want to achieve here at Paperclip?
Jess: In the future I hope to travel to a few more places and bag myself a full-time job in marketing. I think Paperclip is a great stepping stone for me to gain the appropriate skills ready for the marketing world.
Hannah: I’m hoping to pursue a career in marketing and communications, so my internship here at Paperclip is providing me with the necessary experience to be able to achieve this in the future.
What do you do in your free time?
Jess: In my free time I sometimes draw and paint and I love to plan holidays and write for my blog. I train a lot in the gym and train children in cheerleading. I’m on my way to becoming a Level 1 Cheer Coach.
Hannah: I like to curl up with a glass of wine and a good book. I also like to watch true crime and nature documentaries, so Netflix is my best friend!
