Hi, my name is Nicole Schreck (pronounced like the movie!) and I am a third year student at Curtin University. I am going into my final year of studying Mass Communications, specialising in journalism and web media.

My first day at Bam Creative
My first day at Bam Creative

Entering my course, I had more of an interest in the journalism field, however after doing a core unit in Web Communications, I realised I thoroughly enjoyed the digital aspect of media studies as well. So, after my dad introduced me to Bam Creative, I gave them a call, set up an interview, and began my week’s internship!

Right from the get go, I began to learn. 9 am Monday morning, I was taken to the boardroom and introduced to the company and all they do, as well as what I would be doing for the week. In that hour and a half, I learnt so much valuable information, including setting up consumer profiles and narrowing down what the client wants, identifying key words for blog posts and websites, and was introduced to all of the tools and websites available to help content marketing.

It Began Here

Straight after the meeting, I was given my first task, and from there it has been non-stop hands on experience. I have learnt so much from the people around me and will take so much away from this experience. There is always so much to do, learn and explore, and Bam Creative have really welcomed me into their industry to teach me all they know and help me on my way.

In my time here, I have been able to write multiple blog posts, do some research for industry reports, and learn how to schedule and manage social media posts so you keep them all updated. It makes you look active, but really you’ve just planned ahead!

The tasks at Bam Creative are always fun and interesting, as I was able to research sumo suits and cocktail making all in the name of work!

Everyone in the office is so friendly, chatty and welcoming, always answering any questions and always willing to help.
