What did you learn about yourself during your internship?
Hannah: Even though I was only interning here for five months, I learned a lot about how to communicate with colleagues both online during the Covid Lockdown and face-to-face in an office environment. The team at Sleeky is really supportive and willing to give interns the chance to develop multiple skillsets, so I was able to help out in different areas of the business such as account management, content creation and web design. This gave me a well-rounded experience of the business within a short amount of time. I learned that my lack of confidence can sometimes hold me back, but the responsibilities I was given and the belief that the team had in my abilities helped to boost my self-esteem.
Do you have an idea of what you would like to do in the future?
Hannah: Working at Sleeky has definitely helped me to narrow down the type of marketing job I want to pursue in the future. Before the internship, I didn’t know how to apply my university-based marketing knowledge to a practical role. Now, I have a greater understanding of just how creative you can be within the discipline. Copywriting and content marketing is where my passion lies, and I am very pleased to say that through the Kickstart Scheme and the skills I have learned at Sleeky, I have been offered a full-time content marketing position.
