Politics and IR student placement success

Posted on 21 May 2020

Callum Whitten has just completed a successful placement on campus

Congratulations to Callum Whitten, one of our Politics & IR students who has just finished his placement year working as a multimedia coordinator on campus with Careers and Placements.

Callum says 'And that’s that. My placement year has come to an end and the months have flown by! Despite remaining in York whilst the majority of the placement cohort went to placements across the UK, I have no regrets. I’d originally decided to do the placement year to help me decide what I wanted to do after university, and it has done just that as I am now set on a career in digital marketing. By working as Multimedia Coordinator at Careers & Placements, I have developed my experience & skills in content marketing, podcasting, analysis, research, and much more. Most importantly, my placement has developed my ability to communicate effectively and build strong working relationships, which I hope to continue to develop in the next few years. Next up, I look forward to starting a Comms & Social Media Internship at Hey Me!'
