During my 2-month internship with All Things Web ® I have covered a wide range of skills within the digital marketing industry.
I came into the internship straight out of university (studying Marketing and obtaining a 2:1) wanting to put my theoretical knowledge which had come from learning at university into a practical experience in the real world, matching up the gaps in my knowledge. At University my favourite modules were the digital marketing modules which I really had a passion for, and excelled in, so the opportunity to work as an intern has been a great experience, enabling me to gain practical knowledge and experience in a digital marketing agency.
Within my role I have provided key support across the team whilst I was trained across a number of activities to help grow my knowledge and experience. I have also been involved in a number of campaigns, including research, social media and also a project relating to their office move. This involved creating and generating visuals, content and research for the office move and provided me with the opportunity of looking at it from a different perspective and putting what I had learnt at university into practice in the real world.
Another key focus during my internship was content creation where I created and optimised blogs, guides and social media posts. During this experience, I enhanced my learning and developed skills with new tools to help with designing visuals for content marketing. A few examples of tools and software include: Canva, WordPress and Google Analytics.
This internship has really given me the experience and knowledge to give me a foundation to set out within the digital marketing industry. I will definitely be taking many of the skills that I have learnt through this internship, and experiences of a digital marketing agency with me into the future in order to peruse my career in marketing. Not only have I learnt a lot during my time at All Things Web® but I have learnt a lot about myself, my strengths and weaknesses and how I can move forward with these in the future, looking for roles which play to my strengths and offer the opportunity for me to grow.
Normally internships would be carried out within an office environment, however, due to COVID-19, unfortunately this year the internship took place on a remote basis which meant me working from home. Despite this, the team at All Things Web® ensured that I had ongoing support throughout, keeping me up-to-date and part of the team with multiple team meetings each week; ensuring that I had the best experience despite the pandemic.
Overall, working with All Things Web® has been an incredible experience where I will take everything that I have learnt forward into my future career. If anyone is leaving university, I would 100% suggest that they try and obtain an internship as this experience has really given me the foundation in order to start my career.
