As an intern, what do you expect from your internship and the company who provides it? You expect experience, guidance, help and career opportunities.
I am happy to say that I have found most of these at Explore Engage. Unlike some other companies out there, which do not give any “real” professional tasks to their interns, Explore Engage are relatively dedicated to letting the interns receive as much knowledge and experience as they are trying to get. The amount of information you can learn and skills you can acquire solely depend on your desire to learn, to know and to succeed in the professional environment.
I have already been interning at Explore Engage for a couple of months and this experience has helped me develop many necessary skills and improved my knowledge in augmented reality, social media, marketing and, of course, public relations. Moreover, exciting daily tasks have been making my internship experience thrilling and rewarding.
I have never considered myself a person that has a slightest clue about contemporary technology, mobile applications and something as intriguing as augmented reality. Working at Explore Engage helped me make sense of all the geeky concepts and cutting-edge technology, which is out there. In the process of learning, I have received necessary help and assistance that made my learning process easy and straightforward. I was taught how to write media releases for mobile applications, contact journalists and news websites, write articles about augmented reality and research information. My knowledge of social media has definitely improved, since I’ve started this internship, and I was encouraged to create Linkedin, Twitter and Klout accounts to facilitate my involvement in social media and boost my career opportunities.
I have also enjoyed my experience with Explore Engage so far, due to the fact that I felt a certain amount of freedom and flexibility in relation to how I am supposed to execute tasks and projects. Explore Engage provided guidelines, however, did not restrict my creativity and ideas, facilitating my professional growth.
As a company, Explore Engage have not been in business for a long time, however, working with them proved that company’s dedication, resources and creativity will guarantee success. I am sure that the company will continue growing and producing numerous projects and I am happy to be part of this process.
