Intern Diaries: Megan

My name is Megan, and I’m currently a second-year student studying for a Fashion
marketing degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

I recently reached out to the WCS agency after following their work on Instagram for a few years now.
The team were extremely welcoming and happy to offer me a two-week internship at the agency.

During my time at Cardiff Met I have taken an interest in the mobile and social media
marketing module, I enjoy the opportunities for creativity and innovation that social
media brings. I’ve always enjoyed creating content and keeping up to date with the
latest social media trends. I was excited to observe firsthand the usefulness of social
media for marketing purposes at the agency.

The chance to work on content creation for Instagram Reels and TikTok for different
clients was one of the highlights of my internship as I was keen to learn more about this.
I had never created a reel before, especially for well-known clients, so I was initially
apprehensive. The team were incredibly helpful and ready to respond to any queries I
had. I received editing tips on CapCut and discovered what was needed for the clip to
have a high level of interaction on Instagram reels. Although I’ve always wanted to, I’ve
always been hesitant to produce my own content at home. I now feel inspired to
practice my skills at home since I realized how much I enjoyed creating material at the

I was also asked to work on creating a blog post for the WCS website focusing on
industry news and social media updates. This is something I had never done before but
I enjoyed using my creative writing skills to create the post.

Additionally, I had the amazing opportunity to join a few of the team on a content day for
the luxury lifestyle and home fragrance brand, Sophie James Mayfair. After designing
so many mockup campaigns throughout my time at university it was great to put the
theory into practice. It was also an amazing opportunity to gain insight into the behind-
the-scenes of content creation and see the work come to life.

I have really enjoyed my time at the agency; I feel like I have learnt so much in my short
time here. I have gained confidence in myself and my abilities. This experience has
made me certain that social media marketing is a career path that I wish to pursue when
I graduate next year.

Thank you to the team for being so welcoming and
accommodating towards me and I will certainly value this opportunity for a very long
