Why we accept marketing internships at Marketing Eye
Our interns have been amazing. They work on client accounts predominantly depending on capabilities on market research, databases, strategies, inside sales platforms, content development, social media and idea generation.
Clients are of course, not charged for this, however, they understand that the intern is not expected to be at the level of a Marketing Executive, even though some are. Our staff charge briefing and training of interns to administration which is a company expense, and it allows for them to hone their skills in mentoring up and coming marketers.
Mikkel Frolund Lindekilde from Denmark has been in an internship at Marketing Eye since January, and in that time he has done all of the above. He is incredibly competent and is the first person to put up his hand when something needs to be done.
"It is a real good way to see how to do marketing in real life, not just the theories of how you should do marketing," says Mikkel. "The best thing that I have gotten out of the internship is how to use theories in real life and not just in the classroom, so it all makes sense."
Coralie DEAT from Bordeaux in France has been doing an internship for three months. In that time, she has become competent in social media, competitors analysis, developing media lists and has experience a client marketing workshop.
"The workshop was very interesting and it was something I wanted to do within my internship. It helps understand the job of the people in an agency like Marketing Eye and you learn about the client. I get to apply the skills I have learned from my school in real life."
Lola Devos from Belgium has been with Marketing Eye in Melbourne for one month and in that time she has completed many marketing assignments.
"I participated in a workshop for a FMCG company in which the company asked for an updated website and a whole new social media look and feel online. I was able to prepare for the workshop by doing research upfront, and then see the discussion live. Afterwards, I was able to participate in working on the marketing strategy and the steps that need to be taken to achieve the clients goals."
