Here we are, at the end of another week at TYPE. Social Media business is booming and we are generating a social media following left, right and center. General site traffic isn’t doing too bad either. In all honesty, even though I am only two weeks into this, it is doing quite well (even if I do say so myself).
I am now two weeks into my apprenticeship, and also now officially an apprentice, due to having to do a day stint at Estio, my training provider this week to do a lot of paper-pushing and autograph-signing. Nevertheless, everything is now in place for the next fifteen months of my life, so that I can become a qualified Digital Marker.
Anyway, enough about me.
We were let out of the office on Tuesday to somewhere a bit different- The Wardrobe is one of the big independent music venues in Leeds. That’s a night, however. During the day, it is meeting-place-of-choice for TYPE.
If you read last week’s Week in Review, you may have noticed that one of my pet peeves is not being able to hear myself think in meeting places. Thankfully, someone was smiling down on me this week because the atmosphere in The Wardrobe was great. We could hear everything perfectly, and the background music was barely legible, which was also pretty good.
Tuesday also brought on some creativity here at TYPE, as I was asked to take the new company photos for the team. In a few weeks, we’ll all be consistent and everyone will have a similar profile picture on Twitter and LinkedIn, but for now we’ve got the photos, and that’s all that matters. Next week we’re thinking of doing a Meet the Team blog post, where you’ll be able to find out more about us than what is said on the About page of the blog.
As I have already mentioned, TYPE lost me on Wednesday to Estio. A day of fun ensued, I gave a lot of autographs, and had the most fun doing a functional skills Maths and English test. Turns out I’m not as good at Maths and English as I was at school. Who’d have thought it? Not me.
Despite this, Estio has its merits. Namely, that it falls in that part of the city that is home to the biggest wind tunnel: Bridgewater Place. Least I can admire the architecture whilst being windswept. It also has a Starbucks, which works for me just fine. Other than that though, induction was wholly boring. Here’s to hoping that the next time I’m there is more productive.
So that’s everything that’s happened this week. Hopefully we’re going to be more on the ball with actually posting during the week, because I’ve got some ideas that can be worked on.
Anyway, until next week.
