Hey, my name is Ethan Harry and i’ve just spent four days here at Webtron. It’s been an amazing time to truly see what it’s like to work ‘in the real world.’ I was a tiny bit nervous coming here for my first day but my colleagues treated me as if I were a new employee. Which I appreciated a lot because i didn’t want to be seen as a kid. They had me do many tasks e.g. go through their websites and find any errors or mistakes then make edits to the errors I found.
Working here helped me properly understand the workplace environment. Also it helped me get an idea of what I could be doing for my future career, Game Design. In the future I would love to work in a place that has the same dynamics as Webtron. The employees were very helpful if I ever had an issue. Alex, the boss, is so nice always checking up on us to see how we are and if we need any help.
I learnt how to do many tasks such as
• Writing blogs, emails, facebook and instagram posts
• How to use photoshop to design webpages and make GIF’s
• How to use WordPress to create or edit pages on a website (such as this)
• How to build a website using HTML and CSS (one of the web-designers talked me through the basic steps)
• How to use Mailchimp for creating emails and Instagram ads
Overall this whole experience has been a blast! I would recommend this to any person who is into design or anything to do with IT as it will help you a lot. It has helped me get a grasp on what Game Design could be like and also what the work environment is like. Thank you Webtron for giving me this wonderful opportunity!
