In November 2022, Exeter Marketing Agency, Media Street, exhibited at Exeter School’s Careers Fair, where Marketing Manager, Grace Jalowiecka and Head of Web Development, Faye Ellis, spoke to aspiring students, from year 9 to sixth form.
The evening consisted of talking with pupils and parents about all things digital and how a career in the industry can bring about brilliant opportunities across a range of digital sectors. The students were particularly interested in how they would get on the digital career ladder, something that can often be overwhelming when choosing GCSE modules and deciding if university is right for them.
Speaking about the event, Faye Ellis commented: “We were really excited to be able to represent Media Street and share our experience and knowledge of marketing and web development with the keen and enthusiastic students at Exeter School – you could really tell that they were invested in learning more about the industry and the experience they would need to pursue a career in digital. Also, because we have already taken on multiple work experience placements from Exeter School students, it was great to see the beautiful grounds that it’s situated, and talk to the staff and teachers of the highly regarded school.
“We have been invited back to Exeter School’s next careers fair at the end of January, a much bigger event with many other industries attending, as well as it being open to pupils of all ages, not just GCSE and A-Level students.
“It’s a really exciting time at Media Street, with office expansion and company growth, so we really hope to see some of the pupils who attend the fair, also joining us in our offices soon!”
With many of our Exeter digital agency staff holding certain qualifications, degrees and industry knowledge, it is always good to know that you don’t necessarily need a certificate to show you are qualified, but a good amount of passion and enthusiasm for what you wish to apply yourself to.
This is where our Media Street Work Experience opportunities come into play.
At Media Street, we recognise the importance of work experience for young students, as it allows you to explore different career options, build connections and discover what it is you are passionate about. We enjoyed talking to the students at Exeter School about their plans for the future, and hope we provided some useful information to those who want to pursue a career in marketing or web development.
Whether you are applying for a permanent role, or a couple weeks of work experience, Media Street has plenty to offer. Every day at our digital marketing agency is new and exciting, and will definitely keep you on your toes!
