1. How did you experience the internship at Convident (in general)?

My internship at Convident provided me with valuable insights into working within a small company environment. I gained a deeper understanding of their work processes and also contributed to tasks related to the annual performance reviews for each individual employee.

2. Were you well received by our colleagues (work atmosphere)?

Yes, they were always eager to help whenever I had questions. Sometimes, it was somewhat challenging to persuade them to switch from Dutch to English during informal conversations, such as lunch breaks. Therefore, I personally suggest learning at least a basic level of Dutch before starting your internship.

3. Would you recommend future interns to do an internship at Convident?

I recommend an internship at Convident if you are interested in gaining insights into working at a small agency within the digital marketing and web development industry. At Convident, you will learn to self-organize and be proactive to get the most out of your work. Since your tasks are diverse and flexible, I believe it is beneficial to possess strong self-structuring skills to maintain focus throughout your internship.

4. What grade would you give your internship at Convident and why?

I would rate my experience at Convident as a 7 out of 10! It was a rewarding experience with multiple opportunities to grow. At the beginning, it took me a while to understand that I could guide the internship according to my own interests. I am convinced that establishing a well-thought-out internship plan from the start could have exploited even greater potential.

5. What will you take with you from Convident to the rest of your career?

I learned that it is possible to organize and document even complex work processes by approaching key individuals and seeking relevant information. I also acquired skills in using communication and project management tools that were new to me. A key takeaway for my future career steps is the value of proactivity, clear communication, and actively asking for constructive feedback.
