My First Internship
Hi, my name is Kartikey Pant. In July, I started as a Digital Marketing and Business Development intern at Crobstacle. My six-month adventure with crobstacle has finally come to a conclusion.
An internship gives you a taste of what it’s like to work in the real world. When you begin an internship, you are unfamiliar with the field. You have no concept how it works in reality. Internships provide you with the necessary hands-on experience and knowledge. That was my internship at Crobstacle. I learned how to use Digital marketing and whether it is the appropriate profile for me.
I had no prior experience with Digital Marketing when I started my internship as this is my first internship and my first experience in a firm. This is why I was so apprehensive about beginning this internship. I wasn’t sure if I’d be a good fit for the job.
I learned a lot about digital marketing throughout these six months. I started as a business development intern where I engaged with alot of clients and cater to their needs then I practice Off-page search engine optimization where I did things like generate backlinks, write blogs, and publish them, among other things. After that, we went on to on-page SEO. I’ve conducted website audits. For the customer, I created a monthly social media calendar. I was in charge of the client’s social media postings. Using Canva, I learned how to make creatives.
I also learned a lot of other stuff. During these six months, I was even awarded “Intern of the month on one occasion”.
There were ups and downs. I was performing well and was appreciated for my work. And I was also getting scolded for not completing my work on time. I feel both are needed. This is how we are supposed to learn.
It was an amazing experience to work with Crobstacle. I am grateful for the feedback I used to get when I was working on a particular task. Positive feedback would make me feel appreciated and negative feedback meant I had to work hard to improve myself. This internship was the foundation of my journey ahead in this field.
I have learned a lot. I also got the opportunity to teach my fellow interns. This was one of my favorite thing to do. My fellow interns have also been absolutely amazing to work with. As we all were called The Young Turks, everyone had so much to learn from each other. We worked cordially, wished each other the best, taught each other when required, and turned out to be a great team to work with.
When you join this internship, you have to understand that you will be answerable for your mistakes and most importantly, you will be praised for your hard work. I feel this is the best part. Because, when you start to take responsibility for your mistakes and when you know your hard work is appreciated. That’s when you really start to grow. As an individual and as a part of an organization.
Now to sum it up, the whole experience as an Intern at Crobstacle, I can proudly say that I have seen myself growing. I came into the field of Digital marketing and Business Development with no knowledge. But now I have worked and learned so many new things about this field. I learned some things so well that I am confident enough to teach those to others. I still have a long journey ahead of me.
Throughout this learning process, I had constant guidance from Anmol Sir, Siddhant Sir and, Ashwin Sir. They were there to guide me whenever I felt like I needed help and motivating me.
I have enjoyed every bit of working with Crobstacle.
Proud to be a Young Turk.
