APT Academy - My first day with Jonah Rodrigues

Hi, my name is Jonah and this is my first day at APT I am going to do work experience for a week here.

Hi, my name is Jonah and this is my first day at APT I am going to do work experience for a week here. In the interview to go here I liked how the workspace was set out and this persuaded me to do my work experience at APT. I only had a vague idea of what marketing is but that is part of the reason why I wanted to go there since I don’t know exactly what I want to do for a job when I’m older. 

I wanted to join APT for my work experience because I was intrigued as to what marketing entailed. As soon as I walked into the workroom this morning I felt there was a friendly environment and everyone in the room was very talkative and nice to be around. Having this environment makes it easy to work as it makes you feel at home. 

I was quite nervous for my first day because this is the first time I have ever been in a working environment however after about five minutes all the nerves went away as I started to do different tasks. Another good thing about APT is that I don’t have to wear smart clothes and it is more casual than I thought it would be.

My main goal for this week is to find out about what work is like also to find out if marketing is something I want to do when I’m older. I would also like to obtain work skills that might help me in the future. 

I am excited for what the next week holds and I am looking forward to working with this amazing group of people. I would also like to learn even more skills from now until Friday.

Keep your eyes peeled, Jonah Rodrigues
