I am 15 years old and from Budleigh Salterton, and attending work experience for a week is a key aspect to my education. Finding somewhere to go was hard however after a family friend and loyal customer of Chalk & Ward recommended them as a possible placement, I decided to visit their website. The first impression it gave me was that they are a successful advertising company, who mean business.
“Chalk + Ward have steadily become the largest advertising company in the South West” - this is a huge achievement for any company so I decided to apply for a placement with them. From viewing the work displayed on their website it is evident that they have worked with a variety of companies. These range from multi-million pound business such as P&O cruises to local attractions like Buckfast Abbey. Before even coming to Chalk + Ward I could see that they are a creative, unique company, and have been involved in a range of inspiring projects.
This week has been a unique experience that has enabled me to have an insider’s view into the world of advertising. However, not only have Chalk + Ward taught me about advertising and public relations, they have also educated me on what life in the working world is like, which I would have never gotten access to at school. I am very grateful for how they have helped me this week and I am sure that the time I’ve spent with them will be useful in my future career.
