Our Sales and Marketing Manager, Emma, contacted Harvey to ask him his thoughts on the placement:
Hello, Harvey. Could you please tell us a bit more about the course you're studying at Solent University and how you feel the work you're undertaking with EVMT will help with your career prospects?
Hi, Emma. My name is Harvey Taylor and I am currently studying a masters in PR and Multimedia Communication at Solent University, after graduating with a first class honours degree in marketing - also from Solent.
This particular unit on my course is called Professional Development which allows students to develop skills in their chosen industry through real world learning from a company of their choosing; my chosen profession being marketing. I also have an interest in conservation and would like more experience of working in this field so this placement really jumped out at me as I was asked to work on the EVMT ProgRess Limited Marine Conservation and Sustainability Marketing Plan as well as many other marketing tasks.
The work I am doing at EVMT is helping me gain vital experience to help me in my future and also some other current units I am working on. I feel very lucky to have this placement and to have a lot of experience available to guide me.
