How I Got a Digital Marketing Internship During the Lockdown
By - Sanat Mandi, Board Infinity Alumni
1. My Background
I didn’t know much about digital marketing at first…
It was June 2019 and I had just graduated with my B.Com degree. I was still thinking about doing some type of further studies which would accelerate my professional career & help me in the future. An MBA or master's was just not an option because they would be too costly.
This is when one of my friends recommended that I have a look at digital marketing.
I started doing a lot of research on digital marketing. I started looking at the topics covered, the scope of digital marketing, and so on. I started to notice that it was somewhat of a booming industry right now. I started looking deeper, things like different job roles in digital marketing, companies that are hiring, etc.
This is when I came across the content creator role. I was intrigued by it because I’ve always been a very creative person. The idea of pursuing a field that would allow me to convey my creative ideas was extremely fascinating.
During August, September & October I looked into every resource that I could find on digital marketing. I started reading a bunch of e-books, watching YouTube videos, watching free webinars, etc. When I felt like I had a good enough understanding of the basics of digital marketing, I started looking for a proper paid certification course online.
2. Experience at Board Infinity
This is when I came across Board Infinity’s digital marketing course, through an Instagram ad. This made me curious, I started doing some research again. I looked at all of their social media profiles, website, customer reviews, course syllabus, and every other piece of information I could find on the internet.
I received a call from their team (where I was given complete information about the course) and even attended one of their free webinars. At this point, I was very satisfied with how professionally they managed everything so I finally decided to enroll in their Digital Marketing Learning Path.
This course was able to cut down my learning curve by a lot. The whole course was structured very well. We had about 2 classes every week & doubts were cleared by the coaches or program managers after every class.
It was nice to learn from a few different coaches since it felt like I was learning each topic from an expert who specializes in that domain. The coaches were very helpful and gave us a lot of tips about the best way to grow in our digital marketing careers.
Even after the course, I was building a blog of my own (as a side project) and was having a bit of difficulty doing so. The coach was kind enough to help me with every step of building my blog. He gave me tips on where I could buy my domain, what tools I should be using, which website builder I should be using etc.
Another thing that stood out to me was my program manager. She was also very kind & did her best to answer all my calls. Even during non-working hours, she used to go out of her way to pick up my phone calls and solve my queries. It truly felt like I had someone who cared about my career growth.
3. Placement Process
Even during this lock-down situation, I was able to find a digital marketing internship at rosebazaar.in with the help of Board Infinity’s team.
I loved my experience at Board Infinity, looking forward to working in the industry and I’m happy to say that I was able to increase my knowledge 10x.
