Why marketing internships in Sydney are worth it
There have always been these war stories of how interns have had to do the lamest of tasks; dropping off drycleaning, cleaning the kitchen, filing for days on end. But it's not all war stories and I can assure you that our interns at Marketing Eye do not have to do that at all.
What they spend their time on depends on what they want to get out of an internship. If they are seeking to become marketing strategists, they work on marketing strategies, or if they want to be a public relations expert, then the work on PR campaigns. If they are looking for an all-round experience, they are most likely to work on what we call our on-boarded internship program covering all areas of the marketing mix.
What we try to do is work to the strengths of the interns who are at Marketing Eye. If they are great writers, then we encourage them to write blogs and hopefully get tens of thousands of hits, so they can put this success story on their CV's or LinkedIn if they prefer.
Being an intern is about learning and development. Seeing what the real world is like in an operating business. The highs and lows, successes and failures.
The most important thing that an intern can get out of their internship is an experience that will take them to the next level and help them identify if this is in fact the path that they intend on heading down.

If you are thinking about doing an internship, consider this:
- What do you want to get out of it?
- What company culture will be a best fit for you?
- Does it work towards you achieving your degree?
