Last week we had Liam Boyd in our Glasgow office doing a week's work experience with our Client Service and Design teams. On Friday I caught up with Liam to find out what he made of his week in our digital agency.
What do you want to do after you leave school?
After school I would like to go to university and study a course in web design or anything else to do with computers really. I'd really love to get a job in web design.
Has your experience at After Digital helped you realise more about what you want to do going forward?
My experience has helped me realise that this is exactly what I want to do. I have learned about the stages and process behind designing a website, and it has made me feel more experienced in web design and coding.
What are the key things that you've picked up over the week?
I have learned that a lot of preparation goes into planning a website design and layout, and the major role of coding in building a website.
If you could be anyone for a day who would it be and why?
I would be anyone that works at After Digital because of the work that they do here, because it is a fun workplace to be in and because what they do is interesting.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by success and creativity because I would like to be in a successful job one day, which makes me work hard to get good grades in school to go onto further education and hopefully end up in a job that I like.
What have you liked best about your work experience with After Digital?
I have liked the friendly environment encouraged by the dogs and the laid-back atmosphere, and because there is always something interesting to do.
Where would you like to be (professionally) in five years time?
I would like to be working in a company that designs websites, like After Digital, because it is a fun and creative job, and its something that I am interested in doing for a living.
Liam's been a great addition to the team this week and we've got nothing but admiration for him and his strong worth ethic. We hope that his week with us has inspired him to become one of tomorrow's top web designers and we look forward to seeing more from him in the future.
