Internship at design concern.
What is it like to be an intern at design concern?
See what one of our former communications interns experienced during her internship at design concern:
“When I started, I came almost straight from a 3-week course in digital marketing with certification in Google Analytics. The first assignment was to create a blog post about the switch to the new Google Analytics version, so I really felt like I got to use my newly acquired knowledge right from the start. I made this post together with another new intern, who I was lucky enough to work with throughout the internship. We were very different, but that quickly turned out to be a great strength when working together.
Something else I noticed on the first day was of course the environment. The company is housed in one of those classic old buildings you find a lot in the centre of Aarhus. The company has been around for many years, and at the same time it’s not that big, so it feels very homely, which I liked. There’s a feeling of freedom and inclusiveness – the members of staff have clearly known each other for a long time, and it felt safe to enter. I had a good feeling about it all, when I went home at the end of the first day. So, all in all it was a very good start.
It didn’t take long to settle into the routine. The co-workers were nice and helpful, and the other intern and I had a super good working relationship throughout. They were great at professionally challenging, what I was working on, and helping to make it even clearer. With that, and the company being a small workplace, I was given responsibility for different kinds of tasks, which gave me lots of hands-on experience.
In the last week of my internship, I went to a holiday home on Mols, where a workshop was held, and I were to write a report. There was a heat wave, and during the break we went to the beach, dipped our feet in the water, and skimmed stones.
It was a rewarding trip, work included, and an opportunity I was grateful for. It was a really nice way to conclude the internship.
Overall, I really appreciated being at design concern, and I’m probably going to miss even more things than the ones I’ve described here. Thank you very much.” Best regards, Anne
