1: How did you experience the internship at Convident (in general)?
After completing my studies, it was challenging to determine where I would feel most at home. Pursuing a broad field of study led me to seek a similarly diverse approach. At Convident, I found the freedom to do so and started learning more about SEO and SEA. Drawing from my previous internship experience in online marketing, I knew I wanted to grow further within this field.
In the initial phase, I learned a lot about SEO. I received a lot of guidance and there was always room for questions and feedback. Within a relatively short period of time, I gained valuable knowledge and experience. Later, I expanded into social media marketing, an area where I had already acquired some experience during my previous internship. This is where my passion lies, and I am thankful for the opportunity to explore it further.
My role is incredibly varied, requiring me to wear several hats each day. I appreciate this diversity as it ensures that no two days are alike!
