The End of My Placement Year – CCI Promotions Assistant

The University of PortsmouthFaculty of Creative and Cultural Industries Promotions Assistant, Katie Clarke looks back on her time and experience working in the Faculty. 

Katie Clarke

Between second and third year students are offered the opportunity to take an industrial placement and gain industry experience that will prove invaluable after graduation.

After what felt like hundreds of cover letters, applications, and interviews I was incredibly lucky to secure a placement within the University, in the CCI Faculty. Over the past year I have worked with so many different people on a variety of projects, each one teaching me something new, and helping me to grow and achieve things I didn’t know I could, such as writing 16 student profiles, that were featured on the Graduate Show website.
