Sams First Day
Sam’s First Day
At 7:30 this morning i dragged myself out of the comfort of my bed and hauled myself downstairs for breakfast. However i suddenly realised today wasn’t school, today was my first day of work experience. I quickly ran to the car and my mum rushed me to Moonshinenet.
I walked in the door a little anxious but my nerves were soon calmed as i was greeted by Ollie. I instantly felt welcome and couldn’t wait to start. I entered the office full of glee only to find that i had to attend an hour long meeting in which everyone discussed things i did not understand. Afterwards i was told to take photos of a protein shake in a light box. I then transferred these photos to a computer and me and Ollie created a competition for the twitter page. Next i created a mood board for the design of the app that will soon be launched. I jotted down possible colour schemes and fonts which could be implemented into the final app. Finally, i learned the basics of SEO. When we search for a result there are certain ‘ranking factors’ which decipher what the top result is. This can be optimised so that more people are linked to the website.
Then my mum knocked on the door and my first day was over. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
Today is my last day at Moonshinenet. I’ve worked here for five days which is almost 40 hours. In the 40 hours i have learnt a lot such as, SEO, how to use WordPress, basic coding, wire framing and web design. Furthermore i have learnt that web design is an area i would possibly like to work in, in the future.
I am very grateful for this experience and thank everyone who put up with me for the entire week.
