Being an intern at Say Hey in times of a pandemic

Last January, we happily welcomed Bo at Say Hey when she joined our team as an intern. Unfortunately she could only enjoy the presence of our team from a safe distance or with a face mask, but we didn't let that spoil all the fun! Curious about her experience? Read on.

Hey Bo, tell us a little bit about yourself!

“So I'm Bo, 22 years old and a graduate in HR management. Currently, I'm pursuing a masters degree in applied economic sciences, specifically marketing. During this education programme we got the opportunity to do an internship, and I'm very glad to be ending up here at Say Hey. The rest is history!"

How did you experience your internship here?

“It didn't take long to feel like home at Say Hey. Sometimes you hear horror stories from other students who only had to make coffee or were used as some errand boy or girl. That's definitely not the case here. The assignments showed a mix between research and creativity. Marketing analysis, marketing plans, .. I learned a lot about the marketing industry during my time at Say Hey. In addition, they assigned me the responsibility to create social media posts and write several blog posts.”

With the internship at Say Hey, I got a taste of marketing and learned which kind of content can really support your brand.

What impact did the pandemic have on your internship?

“Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic forced me to work from home most of the time. Obviously, it would've been fun to work from the Say Hey workplace every day, but the team did their best to provide mentoring from a distance. Say Hey provided comprehensive feedback and helpful tips & tricks. And let's be honest, it's not the worst to sleep a little late and to work in your sweatpants.”

The end of your Say Hey adventure is near

“Time sure flies! It has been a fun, interesting and educational internship, I learned at lot. Better than COVID, I got a taste of the marketing virus. I want to thank everyone at Say Hey for the great experience!”

No, thank you Bo! It was great to have you here. Loved the brownies.
