I applied for an UK internship under the marketing field and was assigned to work at a digital marketing agency. The experience was up to my expectations.
Firstly, my supervisors as well as my collegues have given me numerous opportunities in trying out different tasks and guided me along the way. Within the 1 month internship, skills I gained includes: SEO, PPC, Adwords Research, Content Marketing and CMS etc. My daily tasks included blog writing and meta data / meta description writing, the sense of succes upon seeing the materials being published onto our clients' websites has been the happiest part of my job.
To add on, I would recommend this program to my friends as I think that the program has been well organized. The accomodation was prepared at Notting Hill, a convenient location that is close to the city center. Without doubt, the security level of the region is high. Moreover, staff from the organizers interview the program participants regularly and evaluate with the company representatives to continuously ensure that the interns are doing well at the company and are gaining relevant working experiences instead of carrying out low value adding tasks like photocopying and coffee making.
All in all, with the highly practical skills that I gained from this internship, I would conclude my winter internship at the UK as a very fruitful journey.
