My three-month internship at Xport eventually comes to an end. I would like to say a special “Thank you” to the Xport team members who have been very kind and supportive to me. I am truly grateful for your help and support in the last 3 months.
During my internship in Xport, I became more aware of the business situation in Etelä-Pohjanmaa, companies and important people in the region that I haven’t known before, such as, Vientikilta, a networking group for entrepreneurs in E-P, funding associations like Ely-Keskus or local organizations promoting businesses like Kauppakamari. Equally important, I learned more about export-related things, for example, what export companies should do before entering an international market and how a market research is conducted.
Besides these, I had the opportunity to see how a start-up grows, how the company finds and reaches customers and how to make a sales presentation. It was interesting for me to do different tasks varying from social media marketing, blogging and creating newsletters to looking for potential business partners, and doing market research. I also like attending events where I can improve my Finnish, meet new people, and listen to appealing presentations. Moreover, I had one more chance to get acquainted with office work in an international company but also a Finnish company, which is specially beneficial to me and my future career.
Again, I would like to express my thanks to the whole Xport team; and I sincerely hope that Xport will continue blossoming in the future.
