The London Winter Internship 2018 organized by HKCareers had definitely enriched my experience. I was assigned to a property management firm as a marketing operations and business development intern. Throughout the month I was engaged in tasks like preparing financial statements for landlords and tenants, conducting market research on HK property market to estimate the company's expansion potential, and make presentations on our findings. I was “forced” to leave the “amateur” comfort zone and become semi-professional by learning quickly and picking up stuff, such as learning how to make a competitor analysis using SWOT and creating a perceptual map using Excel. It was a little tough but that's what you would experience in a fast-paced industry, right?
Overall, I learnt a lot from the internship and the programme is worth recommending to my friends.
