My Internship Experience at Wired – Kennedy McDaid

I cannot believe I am already finishing my Internship at Wired Studio! It has passed so quickly, but I feel I have learned so much. I am leaving with a much better understanding of the field of marketing , which I would like to work in after I graduate.

During my internship I spent some time in the Toni&Guy salon, as one of my tasks was to assist with Toni&Guy’s social media. I am now aware that there is a lot more behind each post in social media marketing, and I understand the importance of researching and monitoring the statistical information of the social media data in order to achieve maximum success. I understand the importance of content and being clear who your target audience is and what your goal is – and this is a skill I feel I can apply to every aspect of marketing now that I have a better understanding, thanks to my experience at Wired.

Everyone in the office has been incredibly friendly and welcoming, I looked forward to going into work everyday to learn new things and share my ideas with them. I had the best guidance I could have wished for from the team at Wired and I am so grateful for everything that they have taught me; especially Lynsey – who has the dream job of using social media all day, everyday! I always felt that I could ask for help when I was unsure and make suggestions to the team about ways to improve the marketing of Toni&Guy. I think this is really nice because as an intern you can feel a bit hesitant to be open with ideas and questions, but I just felt like part of the team!

I am leaving Wired Studio with a clear understanding of multiple fields of marketing – I can now write blogs with confidence, edit the content of a website, and create content plans and social media calendars with a strong understanding of what is essential. I even attended a business networking event, which I was so nervous about, but had full confidence by the end of the event and connected with some really interesting people. The diverse and interesting experience at Wired Studio has truly been the best I could have hoped for and I am leaving with so many new skills and great memories. Thank you to the team at Wired Studio for teaching and welcoming me, it has been a fantastic experience!
