Goals of the Internship


My roll at the agency was to design a lot of things from scratch.

Some of these designs included Briefing Templates, Coverage

Templates, Presentations, Infographics, Postcards, Newsletters,

Websites, Posts, Cataloges and a lot more.

As an Advertising student, its a bit odd to be looking for

internships at a PR agency. But my goal was to acquire new skils

and enhance my so called PR skills.

Some of the skills that I wanted to learn were Digital

Media Communication, Blogging, Crisis Management,

Communication, Professional Presentation, and Digital

Marketing.

First Day at the Agency


Upon my arrival at the agency, I was warmly welcomed by

the team. Everyone introduced themselves and welcomed me

onboard. I was then assited by Jonathan to my desk.

Then, I was assigned with my first project at the firm. I had

to create an Infographic for World Green Economy Summit,

(WGES) in Dubai. I was given an excel sheet with all the

information nessesary for the infographics.

Soon after I was done, I was assigned another project which is

to take pictures of the office from the outside so Bell Pottinger

ME is pinned on Google Maps.

What I Learned
Throught my internship, I learned something new almost everyday.

On the 13th of June, Nicola Hooper, BPME Managing Director, gave a presentation about how big businesses or

indivudual manage crisis (Crisis Management). Here, I learned that there are a lot of big businesses that face crisis

every now and then and that each company has to have a well developed plan whne its crisis time. That got me

thinking, of recent events happening around the world and how they can be solved.

14th of June, Jonathan Ashton, Digital Marketing Specialist, taught me how to use a E-Newsletter app called

MailChimp that creates Opt-in Designable Email Newsletters. Playing around with the app, I became a professional in

a very short period of time and I started producing new designs everyweek.

21st of June, I was assinged to create a landing page for Bell Pottinger Middle East using Muse. Given that Im pretty

new to Adobe Muse, I had to do my research and learn new skills and tools and excel at them to impress the agency.

26th of June, I gave two presentations about Photoshop and MailChimp to the office. Given that I was nervious when I

give a presentation, everyone was impressed by the way I presented and that boosted my self-confidence.

1st of July, I was assigned by Jonathan to take an online course about digital marketing. The course would commence

on the 3rd of July and end two weeks later. I indeed took the course and passed an online test. I got a cretificate that

states that I have passed the course and a badge on my Linkdin account that says Im a certified digital marketer.

8th of July, I was assigned a project for a global media firm. I had to create and design a survey of 5 languages

that will be destributed to international media firms all around the world. Inorder to create the survey, I had to learn

the new online software, SurveyMonkey.

10th of July, I gave a presentation with a young colleague, Sylvia Sarcis, about SnapChat. The purpose of the

presentation was to educate the office about how BPME can implement Snapchat to client businesses. We presented to

more that 20 people, which boosted my self-confidence more.

Conclusion

In conclusion, this internship has been an excellent experience. Ive been

able to meet and communicate with so many people that I am sure will be

able to help me with opportunities in the future.

I learned a lot from this internship. One thing that I definitly learned

is time managment as well as self-confidence. At first I couldnt stand

infront of a crowd and present without getting shaky or messing up. I also

lacked the skill of managing my time efficiently. But aftewr being loaded

with a lot of work and following a schdule, I was able to finish twice as

much work. Also, after a couple of presentations, I gained a lot of self-con-

fidence. I also learned a lot of new softwares and skills that may benefit me

in the near future.

Overall, Im happy with my progress and I cant wait to go back and work

for Bell Pottinger.
