I joined Social Beat Bangalore as a Marketing Intern for a period of 4 months. As someone with little to no experience in marketing, I was quite apprehensive of my job role in the beginning, but the assurance I had received from my manager Tejasvi Batria during the interview with regard to my learning curve at the organisation was very helpful in alleviating my anxiety. The work I did was enjoyable and extremely rewarding from day 1. Instead of mechanical/ backend work that I expected as an intern, I was asked to try and create campaigns for leading clients on the very first day, and continued to be one of my main tasks till the end.
This internship has provided me with confidence in tackling social media marketing campaigns, events, corresponding clients and the likes. Besides the immense learning curve, I have also built lasting relationships over the months with my colleagues who were not only warm, but very helpful at every turn. This surely made Social Beat stand out among all the other organisations I have associated with. I have never had to hesitate to seek assistance or inputs from even the senior most employees/ managers.
This internship has been a truly rewarding experience in terms of exposure to the industry, client allocation, the nature of my job, as well as the organisational culture. Not just professionally, Social Beat also allowed me to become more spontaneous and divergent in my thinking, more refined in executing assignments, and thus helped me grow personally too.
Lastly, but most importantly, I experienced "have fun while you work" quite literally at Social Beat!
