About Tina & Jordan

WHAT DID YOU WORK ON DURING YOUR APPRENTICESHIP?

Our time with Good Marketers Group allowed us to have hands-on experience and grow professionally as we took on various tasks and roles in the company. We developed our web design skills, implement designs on client’s webpages, compiled reports, and learned more about social media marketing and fundraising. It was a very valuable experience to work in such a supportive and refreshing environment.

What can you say about the Experience?

We gained a real feel for working in an agency through Good Marketers Group and got to sample various different roles within the company which allowed us to narrow down the areas we enjoy the most. Through being able to be a part of various company meetings and environments, we gained a well-rounded understanding of the industry and skills we will apply in the future.

Jordan and Tina's Experience

What Did You Work on During Your Apprenticeship?

Jordan: I had the chance to develop web design skills, implement designs on client’s webpages, and compile reports. I loved getting down into the nitty-gritty of how a campaign is run, and then seeing the results. Oh, and I also loved using and creating mockups; designing websites from a graphic perspective was awesome!

Tina: Putting together the plan for a client’s event was one of my favorite tasks. It required a diverse skill set including client interaction to project plan drafting. Because it was a fundraising event, it had a direct impact on the client. Being able to see a tangible impact from my work was amazing, especially because I joined Good Marketers group to use my business skills to do good in the world!

What Can You Say About the Experience?

Jordan: As an apprentice specializing in Digital Marketing, I gained a real feel for working in an agency, with a nice variety of roles to try out. I used to joke that GMG was a bit like a tapas bar for job duties -- a real sampler of different things. Getting to be apart of meetings brought a lot of perspective and energy into how Benifactor works, but agencies in general. As a result, I can move forward in my career knowing now what a variety of environments might play out like, and I’m much more mindful of what direction and specialties suit my abilities and inclinations.

Tina: My time spent with Good Marketers Group was very informative. It was a great stepping stone and really helped me figure out what my role could be in a professional environment. The office culture is fun and friendly and gave me a great sense of belonging. While the work was challenging, I learned a generous amount about multiple areas of the company.
