It is with great pleasure that I am able to say: I AM NO LONGER UNEMPLOYED!!!
Yes, that is one huge statement, something which most people would not have even wanted you to know that they were unemployed in the first place. However, through unemployment I have learnt so many lessons and the biggest being it is just another phrase in life.
I am working as a Marketing Executive at Clanwilliam Group.
For the past six week I have been working at Clanwilliam Group and I spent my induction week at the Clanwilliam Group Headquarters in Ireland, and I had an amazing time. My week mainly consisted of informative meetings, introducing myself to various people, understanding the organisation a lot more, understanding my role and where I sit in the organisation and then asking a lot (and I mean a lot) of questions. On my first day, I received a goodie bag with stationary, notebooks and a branded t-shirt below. Yes, it is a small gesture but it made a huge impact me and made me feel valued.
My position as a Marketing Executive is literally my ideal position. I get to cover all aspects of marketing including CRM processes, segmentation and targeting, data analysis, assisting in events, marketing strategies, online marketing , e-mail marketing, liaising with agencies and much more. The scope of the role is exactly what I was looking for and I am so lucky and happy that I have a great job. Not only this, but everyone in the marketing team is different, where we have a range of strengths and weaknesses, so we are able to complement one another.
This is only the beginning of my time at Clanwilliam Group and I am excited to see how everything grows. It is such a privilege to work for an expanding and forward-thinking organisation, where I feel part of the team and I’m able to do what I love – Marketing!! I’ll keep you all updated on my process.
P.S. Sorry this is 5 weeks late, I have been full stream ahead since I started… but that’s for another post!
Until next time,
