Louise, Kent - UK

It is incredible to think my time at Marketing Mechanics is already over. It seems like only yesterday that I was reading the other intern blogs to see what I was getting myself into, and now I’m writing my own! To any new interns reading these blogs and thinking it sounds too good to be true, it’s not! The team really are as welcoming and supportive as they sound and my time there was invaluable.

I am an English Literature and Business student from the UK, hoping to pursue a career in marketing. I arrived at Marketing Mechanics with very little experience of the business world and even less of Australia, but the team very quickly put me at ease and helped me grow in confidence and ability. The team was incredibly supportive and really encouraged me to experiment with my content marketing skills, something I hope to pursue in the future; while Britt taught me the ways of Australia (and New Zealand), with their abbreviations, “deadly” ticks and awesome burger joints. In all honesty, Marketing Mechanics is just one big family, with Diane nurturing us all with her brilliant advice and contagious laugh.

During my time there I was exposed to many different aspects of marketing, gaining particularly good experience with social media schedules, marketing plans, media buying and customer interactions. The diversity of clients kept me challenged, making the work so much more dynamic and interesting.

So one last massive THANK YOU to everyone there, I hope to see you all again soon.

Much love, Louise xox
