‘Good Morning DiFFERENT!’ This sentence is like a CD that has been on loop for the past four weeks as everyone is very friendly and gives me a good morning welcome every day:-)
My journey began when I was introduced to my pretty mentors Claire and Carmel, I was brought into their team as a Junior Client Partner. For the first few days, they briefed me on jobs and projects that were ongoing for them. Everything started from zero as I was a baby in this environment because I had never worked in advertising before. I would like to highly thank my mentors who explained everything crystal clear to me before starting any work. I have been involved in projects for NE1, Science Central, St.David’s and Cabot Circus. I am so happy that they also invited me to client meetings. This was a precious chance to learn and know about what steps needed to be taken after the meetings (like quoting). I have worked on job briefs, research for presentations and status reports and now I have become a pro at using Synergist! Making mood boards for the fashion trends was fun and I felt a sense of fulfilment when it was complete.
Being a client partner is full of excitement! Jobs may pop in and out suddenly and you may not know what your next job ahead is. It is a good time to show your talent of multitasking and organizational skills. You
have to be efficient and be accurate. It is so fun that sometimes things cannot be predicted and surprises may come! This is the challenging part you have to deal with when you are a client partner. I have never imagined an advertisement you see on the street will take a long time to do the preparation and amendments beforehand.
After a month here, my journey has come to an end. I would like to thank everyone especially Claire and Carmel who have been taking care of me and allow me to ask so many questions. You guys are so fun loving and create a lively working environment. Thank you for teaching and guiding me for the past weeks, I did have a DiFFERENT experience and enjoyed working in here a lot :-)
And hope you guys also enjoyed the food I cooked! Hope to see you all again in the future.
Good luck Phoebe, you were an absolute pleasure & any company will be so lucky to have you! We will miss you, love all the girls @ Different. P.S. You're cooking is the BEST...Feel free to drop by any time ;)X
