What kind of work did you do? Assisted the Keys N Krates team with online marketing and publicity campaigns through social media management, website development, copywriting, content creation and email campaigns.

What was your overall experience? I had a fantastic time with Keys N Krates. The team was amazing and very helpful in guiding me, both in my tasks and career wise. They gave me a lot of trust and valued my input in their work and the projects I took part in. It was definitely a great learning experience.

What skill sets did you develop throughout the process? Through the different projects I was given, I learned some new skills in copywriting, web design, and social media coordination and marketing.

How has this prepared you for a career? Aside from the new skills that I learned in the placement, it has taught me to be flexible in different work environments. I worked independently but also with a team, and it was important for me to be always willing to try and to learn new things.

If you had to recommend this course to someone, what would you say? It can help you figure out what you like or don’t like in a job. Professor Andy and the TAs will also help and teach you things beyond what is usually taught in COMN courses. This is a great hands-on learning experience that enhances not only your resume but also helps prepare you for your future career.
