Anastasia Keras is completing a Bachelor of Business – Marketing/Event Management.
Workplace learning: Publicity and Marketing Department, Channel 9.
"My eight-month Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement as a marketing and event co-ordinator assistant at Channel 9 helped me grow professionally and academically. It was exciting because I had opportunities to do a range of marketing and event activities.
I learned to deal with challenging deadlines and liaised with internal and external stakeholders including sponsors, television hosts, producers and reporters.
My responsibilities included helping co-ordinate events such as the 53rd Annual TV Week Logie Awards, The Block open-house inspections and the Mother's Day Classic, which raises awareness of breast cancer research.
I also assisted writing Channel 9's weekly marketing reports and the live reads for radio station Triple M, as well as co-ordinate print competitions and maintain some of Channel 9's social media channels such as Facebook.
My work placement definitely gave me the confidence and competitive edge I'll need when I job hunt after I complete my degree."
