My first month as a copywriter at Hive
I haven’t always been a writer. After many years of study (probably a few too many), I started my career as an embryologist working in a fertility clinic. Although I loved making babies for people, the routine of the job got to me and I decided that embryology wasn’t for me. I didn’t really know what else to do with myself and I started looking into all sorts of options including starting my own business, getting into the travel industry and even a career in finance. I only considered writing after a chance conversation with a friend who was a copywriter. She loved her job, so I thought that I might as well give this writing thing a try while deciding what I was really going to do with myself. Four years later, I still love writing, I still enjoy the challenges that my job brings and I think I’ll be sticking with this writing thing for some time!
My first month as a copywriter at Hive has been absolutely great. My colleagues have made me feel very welcome and helped me feel at home. Starting at 9:30 every day means that the morning commute is a tad quieter than it could be and being based in Soho is fantastic!
Workwise, it’s been nicely busy which has made the days fly by. Each day has been different and I’ve had the chance to do all sorts…e-mailers, banner ads, content for websites, brainstorms…the list goes on. I feel like I’m learning something new every day, and I’m being kept on my toes…just as it should be!
For me, the highlight of my time here has been taking part in two pitches. It was a real opportunity to get creative, think as part of a team, and show the world what we can do. I can’t wait to do more!
Although I’ve only been here for a month, I don’t feel like the ‘new girl’ anymore and I’m really excited about the future. I hope that I have as much to offer Hive as Hive has to offer me and that I earn my place as part of this great team!
So, to sum it all up, since starting here at Hive, I’ve met some really great people, learned loads, experienced the excitement of preparing for a pitch, and thoroughly enjoyed my new improved commute! What more could I want? Apart from a lottery win or a marriage proposal from George Clooney, nothing at all!
