On a daily basis, I was provided with a few tasks by my team. We all worked on smaller parts of bigger prjects and brought our work together for te final project. This was an effective way of working and I really enjoyed it. It meant I got to interact a lt with the people on my team and this was quite good as it kept quite good interaction eventhough it was virtual.
I developed a lot of new skills during my time there. Mainly, I learnt how to engage in media design with quite a few different computer programs and this was good practice for the future as these programs are used quite a lot by major companies and it is likely I will be working with them in the future. There was a lot of teamwork I learnt also through working with other people at the company.
I think that it was quite a good experience to understand the business and potential roles available. By working in a team, I got to see everyone's roles and got to understand how this was potentially mirror a real project so I knew how projects really did work in the field of media. Beyond that however, I did not get to see much about roles so higher up roles and roles more in management were still unknown to me.
I think that the company culture was very welcoming and nice and this made it very enjoyable to work there. This was mainly showed in the way that the employees led the group tasks and made sure everyone made contributions and that everyone's contributions were equally valid. This showed how much they value the employees there and how they know how important it is to get a range of views. The company was also diverse.
I enjoyed the experience a lot. Not only did it give me the chance to meet new people and form new relationships, it also taught me many new skills to do with media and taught me how to use computer programs that I was previously unfamiliar with. Also, it taught me a lot about how business works in the media world and it taught me how team projects work and are broken down in media projects.
To someone who wants to apply here, I would definitely recommend going for it. Make sure that you prepare for the interview well and know why you really want this internship as this will help to set you apart from other candidates and this is your only true chance to stand out. Furthermore, make sure you refer to your CV and cover letter so the company knows that you know your stuff and really are committed.
