Farewell to our marketing intern, Andrew!

Our amazing intern Andrew who assisted in our marketing team for 7 months left us this week and it wouldn’t had been right if we didn’t give him the sweetest send off, ever!!

“Upon starting my second year of university, I knew that I really wanted to gain some experience alongside my studies that would ultimately help me develop my understanding of marketing and prepare me for the industry and working at Chocolate for the past 7 months has been nothing short of amazing.

Not only have I met an amazing group of people that have helped to mould my understanding of marketing practices, but a group of people that have provided me with a vital stepping stone in my career. As a marketing student, there is a lot of expectation of what working in industry will be like and in your head you are already planning the worlds biggest campaign for Apple, but an opportunity like the one I had at Chocolate was something that I couldn’t encourage more for other students. The process of interning has helped me with issues that I didn’t even think would occur; for example, developing an appropriate telephone manner and really learning how to communicate via e-mail that helps to prepare you for the real world of business and makes people sit up and take you a lot more seriously.

Interning has allowed me to also get a real insight into the process an agency goes through from initial meetings with clients all the way through to running full-blown campaigns at every level, be that the design team, account management, web development or social media. It has been really interesting sitting in on meetings talking through business strategies and ways to propel brands further into the public eye. I believe from my short time working at Chocolate, I have gained more vital skills, that I will apply in every job in my future, then in two years of university thanks to the helpfulness of the team and the responsibility entrusted in my as an employee (I would have never thought I would have been overseeing direct marketing activities with our street teams when I first joined!). It really has been an eye opening experience and one that I will always remember.

Thank you Chocolate for giving me a true hunger for Marketing!” – Andrew

The whole Chocolate Ltd team wishes Andrew luck as he completes his undergraduate education at London South Bank University, and further advances in the marketing industry. We’ll miss you lots!
