As Doric Books has developed, we’ve found the need for some extra hands! We’ve had a few students work with us over the past two years and we’re desperate to show off our latest ones – Kirils and Kirstie. Two Robert Gordon University (RGU) students who are helping us out as part of their placement modules.
So let us introduce them…
Kirils is studying Digital Marketing BA (Hons) and will not tell us his future plans as he is very superstitious – however they seem big for sure! He is taking care of our social media sites and we’ve already noticed a huge difference (Jackie even knows how to log in to Twitter now!). Alongside this, he has been analysing our data and letting us know how we can improve various things such as how to reach more Doric speakers etc. He’s originally from Russia but has been in Scotland for a couple of years now and he loves it. So, since we are a company that promotes speaking Doric, we are getting our interns used to it and so far, we would say Kirils is definitely getting there (when he becomes fluent in Doric – and we have a lot of confidence in him that he will – he will be quadrilingual!).
Kirstie is studying Journalism BA (Hons) and hopes to go into the magazine industry – specialising in design! She writes a lot of our articles just now. They can be found in the ‘News’ section on our website alongside her fun graphics to compliment her writing. She has also been a huge help with interviewing some of you to get feedback and researching for a couple of fun projects that we have coming up. She grew up in Ayrshire (where our favourite female football player Rose Reilly also grew up – saying that though, she isn’t too good on the pitch!) but moved to Aberdeen for university. Her Doric is also getting there, and she is attempting to get used to the North-East version of Scots rather than the Glaswegian that she normally speaks. Kirstie actually wrote this very article and is trying not to big herself up too much!
So, if you ever have any questions about promotion and writing techniques – be sure to give them a shout and they can help you out!
