Taurus has a well-established graduate and intern program called TaurusFastTrack™ and we welcome contributions from their experience with us. Annette undertook a three-month internship at Taurus and came to us with an interest in Public Relations and Marketing. In her time with us, she was exposed to a wide range of activities and responsibilities working with both the Taurus Team and our CEO Sharon Williams. She provides an account of her time here.
I am enormously grateful to have completed the Taurus FastTrack™ internship. I enjoyed every part of my internship and I’m very thankful to the team for making the whole experience a memorable one. This internship was the first glance I’ve had into the marketing and public relations industry.
I was given a wide range of responsibilities and tasks and particularly enjoyed assisting the Account Managers on a social media campaign. I learnt how to track the campaign and understand what was doing well and what could be changed. I was also able to compile media lists, update competitor analysis and ROI reports which allowed me to improve my Microsoft Excel skills. My advice for future interns would be
- to not be afraid to ask questions and speak up
- everyone is nervous on their first week in the office and that’s only natural
The team is extremely understanding and want you to ask questions rather than sit there quietly feeling lost. Finally, enjoy every day you are there because you will learn so much and gain exposure to the industry.
Overall, I had a great time at my internship and want to sincerely thank everyone in the Taurus team for making my time there enjoyable.
