Happy Friday! It’s my third day of my internship with Scotcampus and like yesterday, it has been such a quick day. Definitely doesn’t feel like work at all. This morning the other intern Lorraine and I had a chance to meet the sales team behind the magazine. It was really interesting to see how they contribute to the magazine, what it is they actually do and how all the different teams come together to make a final product.
The rest of my day was spent doing some more research for Futures Fest. I had to look into companies in the oil, gas and engineering industries that create opportunities for school leavers, students and graduates. It’s really great to see that worldwide companies have lots of training schemes and apprenticeships available. Nice to see that everyone has the chance of getting a career, regardless if they plan to go into further education or not.
In between all the research, we had a surprise (to us interns anyway) visit from the Benefit team in their mint green trench coats, with a dance routine, to promote their product “The Porefessional.” The product can be used over or under makeup to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines. They left us with a couple of freebies, which I’m looking forward to trying over the weekend, and a voucher for a free “makeupper” at one of the Benefit Bars. At the time, I was a bit lost for words and I still am. Definitely a good way to spice up an office on a Friday afternoon!
