Olu Adeite – Daymedia

 

Olu Adeite is an Information Technology Management for Business graduate from the University of Herefordshire. He undertook a three month internship with Daymedia, after graduating in 2014, and was then taken on full time.
 
Olu, Project Manager at Daymedia said,
 
“I chose to apply for an internship because it was tough going straight into an entry level job and I felt that an internship would help me gain the necessary skills to push my career to the next level. The original duration of the internship was three months. Fortunately Chris and the Daymedia team saw something in me and I was offered the role of Project Manager on a permanent basis. The internship was very beneficial, for which I am very grateful for. Having industry experience is a key element on my CV. I have developed a wide variety of skills, ranging from taking enquiries from future leads, compiling client requirements and filtering information to Daymedia’s developers and designers. During my role I was involved with setting up and attending meetings, working with external resources, producing proposals and working on client websites in HTML, CSS, CMS, and use of Project Management Tools.”
 
He continued,
 
“I have two major highlights. The first would be being offered a permanent position. My hard work was being noticed and the team saw potential in me. My second major highlight would be my first sign off on a project, seeing it go from initiation to completion. It is a great feeling to see an idea manifest. I would definitely recommend an internship. The skills are invaluable and the experience is priceless. It has helped me in terms of understanding what some of my strengths and weaknesses are and where to invest my energy for the future.”
