This year I had an amazing opportunity to intern at Taurus Marketing under the Taurus FastTrack™ program. I feel the internship helped progress my knowledge, confidence and even my interest in my chosen field.
I joined Taurus in the start of June, and being my first Internship it was a great experience. Every day I was treated kindly by the Taurus team and enjoyed assisting them in their daily tasks. I was assigned with several responsibilities which ranged from Media monitoring for clients, conducting a competitor analysis, updating ROI reports and assisting Account Managers with new and current Social Media Campaign’s. This gave me valuable insights of the Public Relations and Marketing industries.
Throughout this journey I gained personal and professional growth as it was my first real industry experience. Any advice I would recommend to new Interns would be that confidence is the key! Make sure you ask questions, communicate with the team and even sharing a little joke with them. This way you don’t feel nervous or overwhelmed. Lastly, enjoy this time because this experience and knowledge is going to pay back and assist you in future endeavours.
My most favourite experience was helping in the development of social media campaigns, this particularly interested me as it was new to me and it challenged me to push myself to think outside the box and reach personal goals.
