Nearly five months ago I wrote my very first post in this blog. Time has gone by quickly and it has felt like days rather than months. I am excited to write my thesis and to complete my studies, but sad that my internship here has now come to its end. My time at Xport has given me a lot and I enjoyed having varied tasks every day which made work very interesting.
I did quite a lot of market research and partner search as well as email marketing campaigns. A complete list of all the things I’ve done would be too long to write here, but I particularly enjoyed more creative tasks, such as making presentations or infographics.
The experience of doing sales work for a customer was particularly invaluable. The difference between my first call and the call I made three weeks later was like night and day. The only way to learn something like that is by doing it, and I am grateful to have had this opportunity. I am sure I will be able to use what I’ve learnt in the future.
I can only hope that my career path takes me to a company like Xport, since every single day I have not only learnt something new, but had a lot of fun at the same time. The most important thing I have learnt is that even though I have many things yet to learn, I can actually do a lot already. After this experience I feel that I am now ready for the new challenges to come.
