Being an intern at Isentia was definitely a great experience.
I learned a lot in terms of working experience, socialising and it has greatly enhanced my personal horizons and career opportunities.
I still remember my first working day at Isentia. The receptionist picked me up from the lobby and introduced me to everyone in the company. From day one everyone welcomed me into the office and was really friendly and open with me, which made my life easier particularly as I’m from abroad.
During my 3-month internship in the HQ in Sydney I worked across several departments ranging from HR to Insights, Sales and Finance. And while I did receive a lot of help, especially in fields of expertise I was not familiar with, I was also able to bring in ideas of my own and handle my workload with my own approach which was happily accepted by my colleagues.
I didn’t feel like an intern but more like an integral part of the Isentia family.
But Isentia isn’t all about working hard; it is also a tremendous social place. In my time we had a rooftop barbeque and every Friday our team would have lunch together, which was really fun and refreshing as colleagues took me out to lots of different places and gave me ideas what to do on the weekend, which was a big help since it was my first time in Australia.
In the end, I can only recommend doing an internship Isentia as it gives you an experience beyond a lot of normal internships. As I said before, at Isentia you are not treated as intern, you are treated like an employee making you feel more comfortable and making things easier for you.
I wish all of the Isentia family the best and hopefully our paths will cross again.
