What were your main duties and responsibilities during the course of your internship?
Sanaa House is a small local company selling African Artisan Products and was looking to transition from the retail to wholesale market. As Online Marketing Executive I had to promote the company through social media by setting up accounts and managing profiles with Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. I also created marketing campaigns and designed the web page to create the right company image and design the new catalogue.
What would you say was your biggest achievement over the course of your internship?
The internship was a very hands on experience where I learnt a lot on the job. It gave me a good experience of working in a business in the real world. In particular I learnt about consulting with colleagues and how to deal with clients from external companies.
Due to the high level of responsibility I was given I have been able to create an impressive portfolio for my future career. The position helped me to develop good negotiation and team working skills.
