As a recent graduate, accumulating professional work experience in my final year of university has been critical in shaping my career path. Undertaking an internship during the pandemic was difficult, to say the least, but I was so fortunate to have had this learning experience with Marketing Eye. The marketing internship provided me the opportunity to explore more about content marketing, which has been useful in helping me become the marketer I aspire to be!
Located on a bustling street in Hawksburn, this 12-week internship program allowed me to intern in a distinctly modern and vibrant terrace-style building. Despite being unable to work physically in the office in the early stages of the program, the team at Marketing Eye was supportive and was quick to respond to any questions I had while I interned online. When I had the chance to go into the office for the first time, I noticed that Marketing Eye’s culture was focused on friendliness and a strong work ethic, which inspired me to work equally as hard as them. Working alongside the marketing executives has not only helped me strengthen my resume but has also built confidence in my writing skills.
Before commencing my internship at Marketing Eye, I was at a loss of where I wanted to take my career. I finished my Bachelor of Arts degree in 2020, majoring in media and communications, hoping to find a career in marketing down the track. However, I didn’t completely understand what a career in marketing or a media role would entail. At the end of 2020, I visited a careers counsellor, naively assuming that all my curiosity and fear going into a professional work environment would be miraculously cured. After the session, I did not feel as confident as I predicted I would.
At the beginning of 2021, I began my master’s in marketing and digital communications. I felt I had found my passion in marketing, however, when I was asked by friends or relatives what exactly I would desire to do in my marketing career, I felt still quite unsure what I would exactly be hoping to do.
My luck can be encapsulated by Melbourne going into lockdown a week before the start of my first ever internship. Months of balancing coffee on the train while commuting to South Yarra and belly-laughs of office banter flashed past before my eyes. I reached out to one of the consultants to ask whether my internship would be put on hold for the duration of the lockdown with fingers crossed that I wouldn’t be missing out on the “full experience”. Of course, marketing efforts cannot be stagnated just because of Covid-19 restrictions so the internship would still proceed but truth be told – I was absolutely devasted. In a way though, this internship at Marketing Eye seemed to be the silver lining throughout the lengthy consecutive months of lockdown.
I had been on the search for an internship within the rather large realm of marketing and while I hadn’t quite found the niche I wanted to settle in – there was a charm about interning for an out-sourced marketing team. By working for Marketing Eye, I was able to experience an array of clients and the different needs they needed to be met. Tech companies to health insurance companies – you name it, and I have had some sort of experience within the industry. This allowed me to have a more varied experience - allowing me to learn more across industries whilst still strengthening my foundational marketing knowledge.
As I come to the end of my internship with Marketing Eye at their Melbourne office, I’ve finally been able to take the time and reflect on the skills that I have obtained and the knowledge I have gathered along the way. As a university student in their penultimate year, I was faced with the decision of what career I wanted to do once I graduated.
Marketing has always been a passion and interest of mine and I was so excited when I saw an internship opportunity available at Marketing Eye. The application process was very straightforward and I was invited to join the team for a few months after a phone interview with one of the marketing specialists. I will never be happier with my decision to intern at Marketing Eye as the experience I’ve obtained will enable me to approach future jobs with not only more confidence but more ability as well.
