1 year at StrawberryToo: A catch-up with Jenessa
Time flies when you’re having fun! We can’t believe it’s been a year since our Digital Marketer & Copywriter, Jenessa, began her journey with us.
Find out what she has to say about her year in the industry, below:
How has Too helped you in your career development?
Well what can I say, I can’t believe it’s been a year since I started my Too journey. Working for a design and digital agency has really opened my eyes to so many opportunities. Coming straight from university with little industry experience, to now taking leadership on multiple projects is not only fun, but incredibly rewarding. StrawberryToo has really pushed me out of my comfort zone, and given me the first bit of experience that I needed to kickstart my career.
What have you learnt?
I’ve learnt a lot about my skills - areas I’m strong in, and areas I could perhaps develop. Working in marketing is always going to be fast-paced, and with the industry continually evolving, putting 100% into your work is a must.
I’ve had the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in copywriting, social media, content creation, email marketing and even analytics. It’s great that I’ve been able to gain all the skills and experience that I have in such a short period of time!
What are you enjoying?
No day is the same! Whether it’s a last minute copywriting job, a strategic campaign brief or attending a workshop, I love being able to challenge myself to new tasks and develop my knowledge everyday.
What has been your favourite project at Too?
Ahhh, this is a tricky one…
In all honesty, I’ve enjoyed every project. But the work I get to produce for Hymers College is always exciting, varied and rewarding!
Best advice for others?
If ever in doubt, just ask for help (there’s no such thing as a stupid question) and take hold of all the opportunities that come your way. Push yourself to do more, and always strive to improve your skills!
