Last weekend I waved goodbye to my friends as they set off to start a new chapter of their lives at university. Whilst I wish them the absolute best of luck, I do not regret not joining them on their journey. Instead of university I took the more hands on approach of going into full-time work. I am currently completing my level 3 social media apprenticeship at Rocket Creative and I’m loving every single second.

Starting a new job kind of feels like turning up to a new party where you don’t know anyone. You may have your best shoes on and your cheesiest smile, but that doesn’t mean people are going to want to engage with you.

My job here so far at Rocket has been a lot about engagement. From managing and creating content for social media channels, being given an account to co-manage and also assisting in PR and events, I am certainly getting fully immersed and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

There really isn’t a better way to get that Friday feeling than a nicely brewed cup of tea and a delicious slice of cake, and all of this whilst helping an incredible charity like Macmillan. Of course, it was inevitable that we would participate in their famous Coffee Morning. 

 

For those of you who may have been hiding under a rock for the past few years the Macmillan Coffee Morning first began way back in 1990 and has been a firm date on the calendar ever since.  Macmillan stated that the initial idea started as just a small event where ‘guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process’. It was such a great success, they continued it year after year raising over £138 million ever since. Incredible.

On September 16th we helped the shoppers of intu Uxbridge experience their retail therapy on a whole new level, when we transformed their shopping mall into a Hollywood Glamour themed ladies night. 

The event was catered with a Pop up Champagne bar, which offered a FREE glass of bubbles or champagne cocktail (shopping can be thirsty work don’t you know). We also supplied a chocolate fountain where you could dip a fruit or marshmallow skewer into the delicious Belgian chocolate fountain.  Let’s be honest ladies, what more could you want? Champagne, chocolate and shopping!

In recent years LinkedIn has been growing in popularity as more people are forming online social connections and sharing information.  For those of you not familiar with the website, LinkedIn is a social networking site specifically for the business community, it allows people to share their employment and educational history and their skill set. In contrast to Facebook, where your Newsfeed is usually filled with videos of cats, of an update of where someone went for dinner, Linkedin adapts a newsfeed of professional business updates dependent on your connections and business inspirations.  However, unlike Facebook and Twitter where your typos are only an embarrassment amongst your friends and family, Linkedin allows you to connect with your past and prospective employers.  Rocket has taken a break from their intergalactic expeditions to help you out with some of our top tips to make you stand out on Linkedin.

If you ask me a year ago how I’d be spending July to October 2015 then odd’s are I would have laughed and said I don’t know, drunk? Not that I’m always drunk just, long -term plans and serious dreams really weren’t my thing.

 

For me school pressures you from aged 13 and above to somehow know what you want to be and to think of the future, when in reality, anyone who knows what they want to do from that age are few and far between. It’s the human condition to chase after immediate pleasure and wing your way through life, something that I had mastered fully. However, on a whim I decided to take a career test and it came up with, well, a PR role.

Rocket in the News... 22 October 2012

Rocket talks business this month as we hit the press to debate the pros of expanding the support of a marketing agency to cover a Marketing Manager’s maternity leave. Getting a marketing agency to provide additional support offers an alternative option to recruitment agency fees and temporary cover. We successfully provided this service for one of our

Life for us designers was simple during the innocent age of toy packaging, when an enormously exaggerated illustration and a simple ‘box’ just large enough to house the product was sufficient to win the hearts and minds of its lustful audience. We’ve all, well most, learnt a few lessons since then and the advancements in materials and technology made during the last 30 years in plastic Vacform moulds, cut-outs, and Try Me buttons are all-important and now fill toy shelves to bu
