Internship experience in a marketing department in Barcelona
As probably most of students, recent graduates and any other potential Erasmus interns know, it took a lot of e-mails and apply buttons to find The One (Internship), but it was all worth it. When I was searching for one I didn’t have a specific city in mind, but I was somehow led to Barcelona and I couldn’t have been happier!
“Habitat Apartments”, which offered me an internship position is an apartment rental company in the sunny Barcelona. I did my training in the marketing department, which is my field of study and therefore a highly valuable experience. My three main tasks were creating and implementing social media campaigns through various channels, preparing and sending out newsletters, and writing weekly blog articles. But as it is in each company, there were various little tasks in between as well. All of them combined made me learn a lot – from using different practical tools and enhancing the hard skills set to working in a real company environment and improving my soft skills. As I have a degree in Marketing and this was an internship abroad in the same field, it will boost the start of my career in Marketing and will be valued both in my home country as well as abroad.
I am very grateful for the opportunity, proud of myself and recommend this to anyone and everyone as it can be not only a major advantage in the beginning of your career, but also a versatile foreign experience of a lifetime!
