Overall, this internship was extremely beneficial to me. The Social Shop is the first marketing/business-related company I have worked for; now, I have an idea of the work I would like to be doing in the future.
I have learned the importance of communication while in the workforce. It is the foundation of every business. Also, I have learned the importance of staying connected and staying in contact with staff members.
I was able to learn much about the real business environment over the course of the internship and move away from the “student mindset” and learn more about different areas of business such as IT and marketing.
After interning at Style Doctors for the past two months, I have learned how to edit and create high quality Instagram stories, including adding the proper web links to the correct page.
It was a great experience to adapt academic knowledge into the real world (industry). During the three years, as a masters’ student and Ph.D. student, I built a lot of academic knowledge through the course works and research experiences. This internship made my experience enrich.
