Hello my name is Abigail. I am a recent Commerce graduate with a major of Marketing and Information Systems. For the past month, I had the privilege to intern at Creative Agency Secrets. I am sad to bid farewell but I am glad that it has been an incredible month working with Rebecca, Conrado, and Tabhitha. I have learned so much within a short amount of time.
What I have learned
Throughout the month, I had the chance to step into the shoes of a marketer. I promoted events across various online platforms such as Facebook and Eventfinda. I created blog posts and mailshots. I completed some marketing research for a client as well. It has been an eye-opening experience to help to update client websites and assisting other tasks. It increased my understanding of the responsibilities of marketers.
Within this month-long internship, I have gained hands-on experience using various marketing tools to promote events and products, which enhanced my copywriting skills. It has been both fun and challenging taking on the role of a marketing assistant. This experience has also boosted my capability to work in teams in a corporate environment. It was great being a part of meetings and observing how marketing teams work together.
A heartfelt thank you
Unsurprisingly, the real marketing world is vastly different from the textbook marketing that I know. Knowing marketing principles and having experiences creating marketing solutions for clients during my undergraduate studies still did not prepare myself for all the challenges in the real marketing world. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to work alongside Rebecca and the team. Thank you for your guidance along this exciting journey of mine! Has been a pleasure working here and learning from you. I would also like to thank all the friendly people working at 74D France Street South. You have my best wishes!
For those who would like to intern here, you can get in touch with the team. Don’t worry if you have no prior marketing experience, I am sure the Creative Agency Secrets Team will take good care of you.
Since Christmas is drawing near, I would love to close by wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
