Welcome to It’s An Alanna Thing… a blog for the purpose of my Communication and Media Studies degree.
Firstly, my name is Alanna and I’m a twenty yr old university student living on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. I am a young driven individual who is extremely eager to begin my career in the marketing industry. I am currently in my final year of study at the University of Wollongong, undertaking a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies with a Major in Marketing Communication and Advertising, Minoring in Management.
I am very hard working and currently manage two part-time jobs along with full-time study. This has made me a proficient multitasker. In addition to my studies, I am always eager to further develop my skills and gain new experiences in order to gain a deeper understanding of the industry. Last year I completed a three-month internship with a catering company in Wollongong, completing a range of tasks allowing me to further develop my event management, social media and organisational skills. This gave me a fantastic insight into hospitality marketing and management as well as adding to my passion for tourism marketing.
Hopefully, in the next year, I’ll be able to complete another internship and put everything I’ve learnt into practise for when I graduate later this year in November. Lastly, be sure to follow me on my various social media accounts all linked under ‘My Social Links’ in the sidebar, and I’ll constantly update you with everything new and exciting!
