Harriet has just completed her MA Digital Media Management studies and joins us as part of the Sheffield Hallam University Internship Scheme.
I’m Harriet, 22-years wise from the home of the oatcake (Stoke-on-Trent). Following in the footsteps of some of my favourite artists, I have tried to make a name for myself in the Steel City working towards an undergraduate degree in Criminology and Sociology. Now, proficient in ruining the integrity of criminal dramas for my friends, I have developed a socially conscious mindset that helped me produce a psychological thesis appraising the relationship between schizophrenia and violence to earn my cap and gown at Sheffield Hallam University.
Unable to abandon my student status, I extended my education through a master’s degree opening new doorways to the growing world of digital media and created multimedia integrated marketing campaigns in response to briefs from Sheffield Mind and the ScotRail network. Working beside the other creatives in my team, I quickly identified my lead skill in project coordination. But with a desire to become a “jack of all trades”, I accepted a job as Publishing Assistant exercising my ability to maintain accessibility online and a second role in content creation as a Social Media Manager. Upon being accepted for an internship scholarship with Sheffield Hallam, I now shift between the two creative positions and continue to increase my experience(s) in the Digital Sector through my latest position as the Content Creator Executive at 360 Talent Solutions.
I hope that these experiences in the paid digital world will give me the edge over other graduates as a go-getter. Working three responsibilities doesn’t scare me away! I have become increasingly resilient, excellent in time-management skills, found a newly unrequited love for highlighters and, turned into a self-motivated individual with a solid work ethic and a passion for creating digital content. I thrive off the challenge of targets and genuinely care about what I do based on my understanding of it reflecting well on me.
I am excited to contribute to a company whose morals mirror my own, ‘creating a better tomorrow together’.
