As a student of economics and business who has been interested in marketing from the beginning, I wanted to experience how it works in the “real world,” so I decided to take on a new challenge in my life in the form of an internship at ForgeBIT. I think I made a good decision.
Working with smaller clients, I entered the world of digital marketing. Designing content and campaigns for their social media, day by day, gave me a gradual introduction to how this world works. Additionally, alongside my clients, I participated in creating campaigns for larger clients like GameBoost and Gyms4You, as well as creating pitches for events and writing blogs.
With the great help of Ivana and other members of the Social Media team, I learned a lot about creating content for social media, especially how to channel my creativity in the best possible direction.
The relationship with my colleagues was excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed but professional, and the friendliness of my colleagues and their willingness to help greatly helped me in learning new things and creating content. From the first day, I felt like a part of the team, which gave me constant motivation for growth and progress.
The most enjoyable part of the job for me was definitely the brainstorming process, where my creativity could shine the most. Also, one of the more enjoyable aspects was creating pitches, where I could learn that it’s not as simple as it seems and that there are many aspects to consider if you want to create a good and quality project. The most challenging part for me was writing blogs since it’s not my favorite form of content. However, through teamwork and Ivana’s guidance, I improved in that aspect and grew to love it.
Over these thirty days, all my expectations were more than met. I gained and improved many existing and new skills, such as teamwork, content creation, blog writing, community management, and many others. Additionally, I met new and experienced people who provided me with guidance on how to progress best in this field, and I am very grateful for that.
The internship experience at ForgeBIT is fantastic for anyone who doesn’t have much experience, is willing to learn a lot about digital marketing, and is at the beginning of their career. A great team, encouraging atmosphere, and involvement in all tasks are the perfect recipe for personal and professional growth.
