At my internship I loved learning more about the industry. FuneralTech was somewhere I did not expect to do my placement as I knew nothing on how the Funeral business works but I loved researching more about the industry. At my internship I did a lot of customer research and with the data that I had conducted I organized it for sales so they can better assistant their current clientele and prospects.
Research and data entry was not my favourite when I first started. I was hoping to be more on the creative side of advertising and marketing so I was a little off my game. I wished I could of looking into the different sides of marketing and advertising that the company did - such as sales, social media and digital media.
To improve their internships for other students I think FuneralTech should add all of their directions of marketing into the role. This gives the students a nice taste on what is happening in the industry; rather than just focusing on the market research sides.
The office environment is extremely fun and outgoing - everyone is always laughing and joking around! Plus there is always someone to play foosball with.
Smile and have fun! FuneralTech is an amazing company and it is a very laid back atmosphere. Always be sure to ask those questions if you are lost or confused.
