Diary of an Intern: So Long!
I am very sad to say, my time here at Playful Promises is almost finished, but instead of sobbing into the keyboard, I am going to tell you all about my time here, what I have been up to and what I have loved the most!
I have been at Playful Promises now for three months and have really enjoyed all my visits here. I have been involved in loads of projects and have always been kept busy! So you can see the variety of things I have been up to, I’ve compiled a list:
- Researched different companies, publications, blogs and boutiques
- Developed relationships with different members of the press through call rounds
- Made press packs
- Written press releases
- Contributed to Playful Promises blog (read all my posts HERE)
- Contributed to the Playful Promises Boutique Facebook page
- Helped write the company’s newsletter
- Visited the Playful Promises boutique
- Helped organise a press and blogger event
- Organised the Playful showroom and sorted samples
As you can see I have been up to loads of interesting things!
I am really grateful for this opportunity Playful Promises has given me because I have learnt so much! I have had a real insight into how a companies marketing department works and has strengthened me desire to work in a marketing role.
Originally, I wanted to work within a womenswear specific company, but having worked here at Playful Promises I want to work in the lingerie industry! After experiencing this great company and seeing how well the products are designed and constructed, how good the team is and how well Playful Promises customer service is I am actively going to pursue a marketing role in a lingerie firm – I just wish I could stay here forever!
My experience at Playful Promises has also made me want to work for a smaller company. At Playful Promises, everyone is valued and no one goes unnoticed, unlike a big company. Working for an independent retailer has also opened my eyes to all the amazing brands out there that guarantee their customers’ excellent products that you won’t see on every other person on the high street.
Playful Promises have really spoilt me while I have been here – they took me to London Fashion Week, which was so exciting! We went to the Felicities Presents…Show and saw seven emerging designers – Ada Zanditon, Arianna Cerrito, Beautiful Soul, Evmorfia, Phannatiq, Tramp in Disguise and Xsenia & Olya. I can’t believe my luck really!
I am really going to miss working here and I am now completely hooked on Playful Promises and I can’t even think of one thing I haven’t enjoyed about my experience here! I know one thing I won’t miss though – the commute!
