We are delighted to welcome a new member of staff to the GlowMetrics team! Meet Mark, who is just starting his placement with us as a Digital Marketing Assistant! Mark will be with us for the next 3 months, gaining industry experience to go alongside his degree and masters. Our new Digital Marketing Assistant is excited to get stuck in and learn all things digital.
We decided to do a few quick-fire questions to find out more about him.
- So, Mark, tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m 24 years old from Strabane in Co. Tyrone. In 2017 I graduated from Queens University Belfast having studied English and Drama. In 2018 I decided to return to QUB to study Marketing as a masters. In my year between undergrad and masters I lived in Barcelona teaching English and worked as the Social Media Manager in a Summer School in England. Currently, I am on placement with GlowMetrics and I’m excited to gain industry insight and develop my marketing and analytics knowledge and skills.
- What are your hobbies when you’re not working or studying?
So recently I’ve been interested in making short films, usually travel videos to remember the places I’ve been! I enjoy taking clips that I’ve videoed on phone combine them together, add some music & there you have it a travel video! Normally I don’t post them on social media since I’m a perfectionist and always find a flaw in them somewhere, but they’re a great way to capture your holidays!
- What’s your all-time favourite TV Series?
That’s a tough one but I’d have to say the US Office, it never fails to make me laugh no matter how many times I watch it! The storylines are always hilarious & its such a feel-good show.
- Why GlowMetrics?
Having met Joanne and Conor at a lecture given by GlowMetrics on Google Analytics my interest in the company and analytics peaked. The informative lecture provided an excellent starter guide to analytics, a part of marketing I had limited experience in! After the lecture, I decided to apply for the internship position at the company as both Joanne and Conor left a lasting impression, and I knew GlowMetrics was a company I could gain practical industry skills while working in a fun & experienced team! I’m delighted to start my placement with GlowMetrics & can’t wait to join the team!
