I applied for a Placement with Warner Bros. for many reasons. The most obvious reason would of course be the fantastic opportunity to work for a huge corporate business that has an excellent reputation as an employer and as an entertainment company.
Never be afraid to ask a question, no matter how silly or basic you think it might be! Everyone at WB is more than happy to assist you if you ever get stuck, and your department wants you to be a success so ask plenty of questions to aid your development and get the most from this opportunity!
I’ve always had a specific plan when it came to my future as a Graphic Designer. I knew that I wanted to do design work within the entertainment industry – especially working with films and games.
My highlight has to be meeting the people I work with, especially all of the other placement students, as we are already a really good group of friends and I can tell that I will stay in contact with them long after my year at Warner Bros. comes to an end. My team are incredibly supportive and couldn’t have been more welcoming.
I applied for Warner Bros. as I wanted to be a part of an industry I love. I was incredibly excited about the prospect of working with a company that has a great reputation and is also home to some of my favourite films and film properties.
Once I had completed my final year at university and attained my degree I knew I wanted to make my way back to WB, however I had to have some patience and wait for an opportunity to arise. I spent 18 months working for a TV platform learning brand and media strategy and gaining valuable exposure to another side of the entertainment industry.
I knew that I wanted to work for a company that embraces creativity and innovation and just from filling out the application form; I knew that this was the placement that I wanted because I was already excited about it.
After completing my placement at WB, I returned to Leeds to complete the final year of my Economics degree. Upon graduating, I was fortunate enough to be offered a position as a Credit & Risk Analyst at a leading bank, in Leeds. I worked in this role for 18 months, before being offered the chance to return to my former department in a recently created management role.
