Ask Us Anything | Nico van der Woude

Introducing: Ask Us Anything! After getting to know our taste in music, you’ll now be able to get to know us even better in our brand-new segment. No question will be left unanswered!

Up first is our PR Assistant Nico van der Woude. When asked what he likes most about his work he answered ‘I get the biggest rush when we’ve managed to secure a cool feature for a client of ours!’

Read on to find out the answers to what planet he’d like to visit, his favorite Netflix series and more!

If you could visit one planet, which one would it be?
If I wouldn’t die? I think I’d go to Saturn, to really see those rings up close. Or maybe Jupiter, to wander through that centuries-old storm that is bigger than Earth, haha!

What are my chances to work at The Media Nanny as an intern as a student?
I started at The Media Nanny as an intern in February. I just applied for an internship and had a couple of great conversations with Maud and Cathelijne, who are now my colleagues. I couldn’t tell you what your chances are as it depends on your skills and expertise, so my advice is to just apply!

What do you like most about your work?
I get the biggest rush when we’ve managed to secure a cool feature for a client of ours! I love giving the client the news and then seeing it all come to life. 

Which study do you follow?
I follow Marketing & Sales at The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Tell us your favorite joke!
Hmm.. I’m a dad joke type of guy. Best one I can think of right now is ‘Knock Knock’
‘Who’s there?’
‘Police who?’
‘Police let us in, it’s cold outside’

I promise, I’m funnier in person. 

What do you miss most in these weird times?
I miss seeing people enjoy loud music while being together. In July I was able to attend a corona-proof concert from one of our clients. This was about 5 months after the last time I was able to attend an event with loud music. It was great to see so many people enjoying loud music together. 

Netflix tip?
Confession: I’m slowly moving to Amazon Prime as I’ve seen most of what Netflix has to offer, haha! Best series I’ve watched on Netflix, and am watching on Netflix are: Peaky Blinders, Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul, Fargo, and Sherlock. If you’ve got both Netflix & Amazon Prime you can check out the whole Michael Schur universe — The Office, Parks & Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and The Good Place.

How did you come across The Media Nanny?
I started ‘working’ in the music industry back when I lived on Curaçao. In 2014 Martin Garrix came to the island to perform at a festival, that was the first time I heard about The Media Nanny. Then, later on, I remember people talking about The Media Nanny and what a cool company it was, so when I had to go look for an internship I immediately thought of The Media Nanny!
