EST10 Team, News & Events

Week 11

This week has been a mixed bag of jobs for me at EST10, including social media, deliveries, playing with photoshop and hunting for post-worthy graphics. The latter had me looking at a range of motivational posts and hilarious Monday memes, which had others in the office wondering what I was laughing out loud at.

I got to use photoshop for the first time and designed some job ads to post on our social media. There was already a template for these, but I thought I would test myself and create one from scratch. Let’s just say I stuck with the template, Photoshop is quite hard to navigate when you are a beginner, but I still really enjoyed it.

Another thing I learnt this week is how to use a media scheduling system, which allows us to auto-publish posts. This means that we don’t have to wake-up early and come up with a witty caption before our morning coffee – it’s already been done in advance. This does not mean we do not post on the run though, we do all the time – we love to share!

I also had an exciting opportunity to get my photo taken by a professional photographer, which was a fabulous experience. We were on a tight schedule and I’ve never seen everyone so quick on their feet to touch up the lippy and brush their hair! As a result though, everyone’s photos came back gorgeous – Kendall Jenner, eat your heart out!

Up until this week I thought that podcasts were the best thing since sliced bread to listen to on my commute to the city. But this week I discovered Netflix downloads, and this is now my preferred entertainment app for getting to and from work.

Reflecting on my time at EST10 over the past three months, I can really see how much I have learned and in such a short amount of time. Some of the tasks such as photoshop, social media scheduling and engagement reporting are all things you don’t get to experience sitting in a classroom. It also helps to have incredible mentors to guide you along the way, for which I am incredibly grateful.

It is my final week at EST10 next week, so tune in to find out about the highlights of my internship and what’s next for me!
