Studied: Media and Communications

While I was studying, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go into a corporate media or marketing role that would potentially narrow my ability to showcase my creativity.

A Day in the Life

Charlotte – Marketing Graduate

Location: Sydney Head Office

7:00am Waking up and Morning Routines

I like to fit in a nice leisurely stroll most mornings so I can clear my head before the day ahead! [Company Name] has a pretty relaxed dress code so I don’t have to stress out about picking an overly formal outfit every day. Then I’ll hop on a short train journey to the office in Barangaroo – I'm lucky enough to live close to the CBD that it only takes me 15 minutes.

8:30am Arriving at the office!

[Company Name] has an amazing café and free breakfast bar which I love to take advantage of. After munching on an apple and the latest cereal of choice, I’ll make my way to my desk - [Company Name] is set out in a highly collaborative open plan office so you get to say ‘Good Morning’ to everyone you bump into along the way.

9:00am Work Begins

Before I begin work every day, I like to make a list of the tasks I need to complete, prioritising those with the most urgent deadlines first. As a marketing grad, you get tasked with an incredibly diverse range of tasks, from daily social media management to larger-scale ongoing projects. There’s also ad hoc tasks that get passed to me throughout the day, which keeps me on my toes!

11:30am Video Call with the Product Team

We’re in the process of launching an exciting new line of muesli bars so that we’re having weekly meetings with the Product Team so we can give them input on areas like product packaging and plan out our promotional campaigns in advance.

1:00pm Lunchtime!

At [Company Name] you can take your lunch break whenever you want! I head to the shared dining area and look for my fellow graduate buddies to hang out and talk about our days. This is also a great chance to mingle and meet more experienced colleagues from other teams you might be interested in.

2:45pm Weekly Catch-Up with Manager

As a graduate at [Company Name] you’ll be assigned an experienced mentor in your stream to make sure you feel supported every step of the way. Today my mentor has taken advantage of [Company Name’s] flexible work culture and opted to call from home. We talk about the goals that I’ve set for the year and what progress I’ve made. This is also where I’ll bring up any concerns or questions I have – nothing is too insignificant to ask about!

4:00pm Training Webinar

My learning doesn’t stop once I’ve graduated from uni! I join a webinar recommended to me by my manager - this week it’s a talk from an external marketing company on the changing nature of targeted advertising. Once that’s finished, I also complete one of the modules I’ve selected from [Company Name’s] Learning Hub – there are a ton of courses in there designed to help you upskill in your specific discipline.

5:30pm Finishing Up for the Day

As I round up for the day, I consolidate all the things I’ve ticked off from my list – if there are any stragglers or ongoing items I’ll reincorporate them into tasks that I have to do tomorrow or whenever I have capacity.

6:00pm Friyay

It’s Friday so I head out with a couple of fellow graduates so we can go out to Happy Hour and celebrate the end of another working week!
