Iggy is our Casino Content Writer. We asked him to describe what his typical day is like at WIS!
08:50: With a freshly-brewed coffee in hand, I head to my desk and switch on my laptop.
09:00: My first task of the day is always to check my emails and reply to any messages my colleagues may have sent me. Following that, I double-check my calendar and to-do list for the day, which I like putting together the day before.
09:30: Given that there are no planned meetings, I get started with my writing. My tasks are assigned by the Content Strategists, so I read their instructions before I get cracking.
10:00: I begin every article by doing my research, a lot of which depends on the topic at hand. If it’s a game review, I try out the game. If it’s a review of Bitcoin casinos, I make sure to learn how Bitcoin works and what casinos that accept Bitcoin are like. This is honestly one of the best parts about this job, as I feel like I’m constantly learning and trying out something new!
10:30: I remember there’s a kitchen full of snacks, so… I can’t resist taking a small break. Fresh OJ, anyone?
11:00: With my research done and dusted and each section of my article now annotated, I begin writing. It’s amazing how much you can get done in an hour once you know exactly what you want to say and when there are no distractions…
12:00: But, hey, it’s time for lunch, and WIS has it delivered for us each day. I don’t even have to worry about meal prep the day before!
12:40: With a full tummy, I head back to my desk. I check my emails and messages once again.
13:00: It’s a Wednesday today, so I can take two hours out of my day for our Educational Sessions. I recently finished a course in Google Analytics, so this time, I want to focus on reading about the latest developments in the casino industry.
15:00: Is it 3 o’clock already? I think it’s time for another coffee and one of those chocolates a coworker brought over from her trip to Belgium…
15:15: I finalise the last bit of the article I'm working on. This includes proofreading and adding any necessary links. Once I’m happy with it, I upload it so the Content Strategist can give me their feedback.
16:15: With just one hour to go, I check my emails and messages one last time for the day.
16:50: Once that is done, I plan out the next day. To do this, I check my pending tasks and when they are due. I also look at my calendar to pencil in any meetings I may have for the next day.
17:25: With everything done, I switch off my laptop and head off home. Today I’ve decided to walk it to Sliema for some shopping, but I could have also used one of the electric scooters we have in the office.
