    Hi all,

    I am currently doing a degree in Interactive Media @ Bournemouth Uni(England) and as part of my degree I am required to go on a 4 week professional placement/internship at the end of my second year. The aim is observe, contribute and generally learn from professionals in an office/agency enviornment.

    I had an interview with a big marketing agency yesterday and I got offered a role as a front-end developer in the digital department as part of my placement and I’m a bit worried as to what is exactly expected of me.

    I have worked freelance on a number of projects throughout the two years I’ve been at university and consider my self to be junior with regards to front end development. I would really like to pursue it as a career so I think it’s vital that I make the best impression possible.

    I guess my question is; Is there any tips, tricks or just general advice that you could give me? What are the sort of qualities that employers/colleagues value in such an environment?

    Thanks to everyone in advance!

    Make sure you actually learn something. Show initiative, and accept all the feedback you get. don’t just follow briefings like a sheep. Be creative and have arguments why you did something.

    And just be a nice guy in general :D
