I started my placement working cross-service, and getting a feel for each of the different departments (design, development and engage). I then settled into the marketing team, working in line with my previous interests and current degree subject. Surprisingly for myself, I enjoyed working in all of the sections of the business, particularly learning about subjects I never would have been able to without the help of the team.
To my surprise, I haven’t been sent on coffee runs or once been near the shredder! Kolodo have well and truly demolished the stereotype when it comes to intern positions, and along with writing numerous blogs for the company website, planning and managing the company’s social media and attending client meetings – I’ve learnt more than I could have ever anticipated.
As well as enhancing my practical skillset such as time-management and communication skills, I’ve gained an abundance of knowledge on programs such as Google Ads, Google Analytics, Google MyBusiness and WordPress. Furthermore, liaising with clients taught me how to build solid, long-lasting relationships with customers and how to manage expectations on both sides of the relationship.
I am beyond grateful to Kolodo for giving me this opportunity and working with a young, passionate team has been a bonus on-top of what has been an amazing summer of learning for me. Perhaps most importantly, Kolodo have reaffirmed my desire to work for a digital marketing agency when I graduate, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
