Transition Year Student
Balbriggan, Dublin, Ireland
16 Years Old
This week in our Dublin office we had the pleasure of Cillian’s company when he took some time to stop by for work experience and learn all about marketing for his secondary school (high school) tuition. He attends Ardgillan Community College in Balbriggan, North Dublin and, just like us, he loves getting involved in the community. Oh and he’s a major rugby fan and plays for his local team too!
My experience this week has shown me the wide range of technology and engineering jobs that are available nowadays, so that’s what I’d like to do someday.
Tell us what you learned about Groupon this week?
“It was interesting seeing all of the different people involved in marketing at Groupon. I never knew the impact of advertising and promotion in a company, so it was a real eye-opener for me to see all the types of functions needed to make a company like Groupon run. I also loved how the teams could see impact of their work at the end of the week.”
What do you hope to study at university?
“I’d like to get my Masters, maybe in Computer Science. My experience this week has shown me the wide range of technology and engineering jobs that are available, so that’s what I’d like to do someday.”
MOST importantly – did you enjoy yourself here this week?
“YES! The people are very friendly and the atmosphere is great. Everyone I worked with from the design team to the affiliates and marketing and recruiting teams was very helpful and happy to answer my questions and provide advice on my future career. I moved around various teams during the week and the people were so welcoming and made me feel right at home. The atmosphere in here is relaxed and fun, everyone helps each other out and there is a creative vibe, which is really nice to be around”
We absolutely enjoyed having Cillian’s around – and being so enthusiastic about technology and engineering, we’ll be keeping a close eye on him for future roles here!
Hope to see you again soon Cillian.
