Meet Matthew – Work Experience 2018

Meet Matthew – Work Experience 2018

Whilst on work experience, we ask our students to write a short blog, share some information about them and their time with us at Creative Shed. Here is Matthew’s story:

“My name is Matthew Clayton. I am 17 years old and I’m currently doing A-levels in Geography, Maths & Business Studies at Sherburn High Sixth Form. From my work experience at Creative Shed I’m looking to get a feel for working in an office, using computer software for various tasks etc.

This week can also give me an indication of whether or not this would be a line of work I want to pursue for a potential career in the future. In my first and second day at Creative Shed, I helped with the Sherburn-in-Elmet website. I submitted a few local businesses that weren’t already included on the website as well as an event listing. I also wrote a tutorial on how to make a cup of tea. However, I was explaining this to an alien who had never experienced Earth and their traditions before, so extra detail was necessary. Another thing I did was write an article detailing a local business conference. I also went to an elderly people’s fashion show to take photographs for the Sherburn-in-Elmet website. This gave me my first taste at photography.

On day three and four, I took pictures of the new product of one of Creative Shed’s clients. This required me to be creative in the way I presented the products and angled the photographs. I found this activity enjoyable as it was nice to see an end product that I was proud of and to have produced something that may be uploaded to a successful company’s website.

All in all, my week at Creative Shed has opened up a new range of possibilities for the career I wish to pursue in the future, and although I still am not entirely sure which path I want to follow, it’s always great to experience different aspects of a business to allow me to have a better understanding on what I want to do with my life. Before this week, I wasn’t entirely sure what the responsibilities of someone working in marketing were but I have a much better understanding and interest now”.
