1: How did you generally experience your internship?

My online marketing internship experience at Convident was a pleasant, enjoyable, and above all instructive period. The 10 months of my internship flew by. This was mainly due to the driven and friendly atmosphere in the office, which formed an inspiring environment. In addition, I was heavily involved in ongoing projects for customers, but also within the company itself (for example, something with two Santa Clauses, a Santa Claus, and delivering Christmas packages in a thick limousine). Sometimes that responsibility can be exciting, but it is certainly very instructive! After all, you learn most in practice.

2: Did you feel well accepted by our colleagues?

I have been very well received by the Convident team. The working atmosphere in the office is mainly informal, but there is certainly room for a serious conversation. Since the first meeting I immediately felt welcome. This feeling was only further confirmed when I started my internship. In addition, I immediately got the feeling that I (also as an intern) was taken very seriously. You learn a lot from your colleagues, but they are also open to learn things from you.


3: Would you recommend future interns to do their internship at Convident?

I would absolutely recommend future interns to knock on Convident’s door for a fun and instructive internship. This is because you will always feel welcome at Convident and you will learn a lot about the field in which you are interested. In addition, you don’t have to be insecure if you don’t know how to execute things down to the last detail. After all, that’s what an internship is for. You therefore also get enough time and space to discover these things. It is also great that at Convident you are included in the business process and that you work with their projects. You therefore not only learn something about the field and the skills that go with it. At Convident you also learn how to position yourself in a company and towards customers and relations. All of this is a huge boost to your confidence.


4: How would you rate your internship at Convident and why?

I give my internship at Convident a big 9! This is because I was able to learn a lot about online marketing, but also about myself. During my internship, I was able to develop myself in both areas. This has been extremely valuable to me.

5: What will you take with you after your chapter at Convident?

What I take with me from Convident to the rest of my career is that you should always listen carefully to your feelings in the field of work and then express this. Convident always listened very carefully to my wishes in terms of what I wanted to learn. This gave me a familiar feeling.
