Adeeba's Experience

As a student, navigating the world of work can often be both confusing and challenging. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to gain hands-on experience at Framework Digital, a web design and digital services company.

During my time, I learned valuable skills and gained insights into the industry. In the future I hope to pursue an apprenticeship in the digital and business sector, and this experience has been invaluable towards achieving that goal. Below is a detailed look into my time at Framework Digital.

Day 1: Introduction and Shadowing

On my first day at Framework, I was welcomed by the lovely team, and I met Amy, Mike and Tomas. We began the day with a 10 AM Monday meeting led by Mike, where the team reflected on their achievements and shared weekend wins, which I think is a great way to start the week. They also discussed their objectives for the upcoming week based around projects. This meeting offered me a glimpse into how the team operates, by breaking down tasks and discussing them collectively.

After the meeting, I shadowed Mike who is the Project Manager, where he introduced me to his client work. It included sending invoices and managing Google Ads to get this information. This session was incredibly insightful as I learnt the importance of reviewing and measuring ad progress. Later, I shadowed Tomas, who explained web analytics and the importance of data in gathering information. Following that, I worked with Amy, who an apprentice at Framework running the social media and communications as well as Google Advertising. She taught me about digital marketing and media management. Amy also shared her apprenticeship experience, giving me valuable knowledge into potential opportunities.

Day 2: Competitor Analysis Task

On the second day, I was tasked with completing a competitor analysis. This involved researching local and national competitors, providing Framework with valuable insights. The exercise enhanced my analytical skills, helping me break down complex topics into manageable and understandable components. Additionally, it broadened my understanding of the digital services industry from a different perspective.

Day 3: Web Development Insight and Presentation

On the final day we focused on web development. Tomas introduced me to the basics, explaining a current project and the web hosting solutions they use which was very interesting. Later, I had the opportunity to present my competitor analysis findings. This presentation allowed me to refine my presentation skills and receive valuable feedback and engaging questions from the team.

"It was pleasure to have Adeeba here at Framework for these 3 days. Adeeba was engaged throughout, listening, taking notes and asking questions that show genuine interest in our work. She was also working unsupervised on the competitors analysis report. On her last day, Adeeba presented her research to the team.
