Insider trick’s to nailing your internship

As the end of University begins to peek its head around the corner, we all know what that means. It's business time. Internships are one of the most nerve-racking, scary and exciting times of our lives, as they provide us all with the opportunity to dip our toes in the waters of various industries, departments, and businesses for a short period of time.

My Experience Interning at Marketing Eye

After two months of interning at the Melbourne office of Marketing Eye I feel like time has gone too quickly.

Internships seem like this tiresome task that university students need to do to boost their CVs, but I can honestly say I’m going to miss everyone there and am sad to leave. I really didn’t know what to expect when I started. I didn’t know what work I would be assigned or what the people would be like, but I was pleasantly surprised to say the least.

I had learnt so much theory on marketing at Uni that I thought it was time to put it into action. To say I was nervous before my first day at Marketing Eye would be an understatement, especially not knowing what to expect.

We have four (4) gun marketing interns in our Sydney office, and given that they seemed to love chatting to each other and working together, we gave them a task to write a blog. We didn't expect quite this though...

Our expectations as marketing interns

Published in Marketing
We have the most amazing marketing internship program, and the biggest benefit for us is the privilege to see people grow in confidence and capabilities. The fact that after an internship they should be able to go out into the world and add value to any entry-based marketing position, is something that we are extremely proud of.

Yesterday was the last day of an internship for a young man who had chosen Marketing Eye Melbourne as the place he was going to learn and work out where he wants to be after he graduates.

Last days are always hard. Firstly, if you have finished everything that you were working on, you tend to just do task that have to be done, rather than projects that may benefit your internship and future employment prospects. Secondly, it's a day of reflection. What did you get out of your internship? Was it worthwhile? Are your colleagues friends of the future? Do you want to work at the company that you did your internship at? Have you chosen the right career path? Are you more confused than ever?

Being a marketing consultant is insane

Being a marketing consultant is truly insane. Trying to explain what you do on a daily basis, is like talking another language to most people that are not in the industry - and for reason. We all work at different levels and few of us really talk to each other about marketing because everyone wants to be the top marketing expert that clients go to for advice.

We will continue to have the University vs. real-world experience debate in this industry until the end of time, however, I feel this comes from those who sailed through Uni, didn’t take the information on board and showed up to every Wednesday morning lecture in the same clothes they wore out on Tuesday night. There is no substitute for education, whether that comes from practically undertaking tasks or learning theories and case studies in the classroom. In this competitive industry, you are required to wear many hats and need to be an ace of all trades to set yourself apart from other candidates. Here are the 3 best tips for young marketers breaking into the industry.
