Meet our Summer Intern, Samir Mehta, a Marketing Graduate. In this interview, he reflects on his experience of working with CI Projects.
Tell us what you do for CI Projects.
I currently deal with CI Projects’ social media, specifically Instagram. I help create engaging posts and content.
How do you think your university experience prepared you for this role?
It definitely prepared me a great deal as my degree was in marketing, and I did learn valuable techniques regarding how to promote a company and/or product via social media, as well as learning what types of content would be engaging for specific target demographics.
If you could learn to do anything new what would it be?
I would like to learn how to cook.
What advice would you give a recent graduate trying to enter the job market?
I would tell them to stay patient and make sure they find a job that is right for them. Also, to not be too money minded when it comes to looking for a job, but to instead think about enhancing your skills and experience.
How does it feel to work as part of a remote team?
It definitely feels exciting. From meeting the team l noticed how close everyone was from a professional standpoint which can only correlate with positive results.
What three traits define you?
Eager to learn, enthusiastic and respectful.
What has been your biggest learning experience whilst working for CI Projects
I wouldn’t say I’ve just learnt this now, but I have definitely got a greater appreciation and understanding for what it takes to work in a team.
What would you like to achieve (personally or professionally) in the next 3 years
I want to learn how to drive, finally achieve my degree and start full time work!
We wish Samir all the very best as he completes his internship with us.
