After finishing my degree and doing some work experience I realized that I wanted to go into a analytical area of marketing, and i needed more practical relevant experience in data analysis. This internship offered the perfect experience using tools such as SPSS. It also seemed like a versatile role which also focused on working on taking reports and deriving strategy, which is a really interesting process. The programme also highlights the various training and intern community, which looked like a great way to get some important training at the start of my career.
I feel that with experience in analytics tools, insight and strategic work I have option to go into data analytics, or even commercial marketing such as strategy development or insight analyst. These are roles I am seeing advertised in new graduate programmes, and they focus on having analytical thinkers, so I believe my experience from this will provide me with a lot of help in entering those kind of roles and developing my career as a data analyst.
