Companies Love Fitzwilliam Institute's students

Dublin Town is one of the organisations hosting Fitzwilliam Institute students on Digital Marketing, Public Relations and Event Management work placements since 2010. See what the Marketing and Communications Director has to say:
Since 2010, DublinTown have had the pleasure of hosting Digital Marketing, Public Relations and Event Management students from Fitzwilliam Institute Group on work placement. We are responsible for the marketing of Dublin City Centre on behalf of 2,500 businesses and are the creators and organisers of the Dublin Fashion Festival, Dine in Dublin and the Dublin at Christmas campaign which includes many large public events to switch on the city’s Christmas lights. We are a small team so when we take on student interns they get to do real tasks during these important campaigns and events so we need our student interns to be highly trained on their given topics and ready to jump right into executing the campaigns. The Fitzwilliam Institute Group has never failed in sending us capable student interns which I believe comes from the training they receive on their courses. Where possible, we have employed student interns at the end of their placement, some are still with us and others have moved on to excellent positions in other companies and countries. - Marketing and Communications Director, DublinTown
