Matt’s first couple of months at the village

(It’s me on the left!)

After a busy first couple of months which has definitely flown by it’s hard to believe just a little while ago I was walking out the exam hall for the final time at University with no idea what my future life would hold for me.

Thankfully (for me at least!) I ended up at The Village as a Graduate Digital Account Executive. Even though it’s only been a short time, I’ve experienced so much and learnt even more about both the media industry in general and digital marketing.

Being thrown straight into the deep end is brilliant- there’s nothing better than seeing what you do directly impacts and improves client’s results, instead of being analyst #247 doing excel reports day in day out. Since joining just a couple of my responsibilities I’m now in charge of are PPC campaigns for clients and have direct involvement in improving the media strategies of others over Facebook and programmatic partners.

I can easily say that if I could go back to the university student a few months ago I would tell him that there’s no need to worry and relax because you’ll end up in such a good place! It’s cheesy but it’s been great to be given such an opportunity and I’ve absolutely loved the first month and looking forward to the many more to come- all I’ve got to do now is improve on my table football skills!
