Summer Intern (Coastal Watch), 2014
"I think internship is really good experience to acquire practical skills."
My internship experience in WWF was really enjoyable and enabled me to grow. When I studied corporate communications skills at university, even though I was equipped with practical writing and verbal corporate communications skills, practicing it in a real-world situation could be a lot different. Therefore, I think internship is really good experience to acquire practical skills.
At the same time, I learnt many things which were not taught in books, like writing Facebook post and doing social media marketing. It gave me a huge sense of satisfaction when I saw what I wrote being posted on Facebook and read by so many users I did not know.
In terms of the working environment, my team was really encouraging and friendly to work with. They are willing to share with you their experience and you can learn how to interact with colleagues. Also, working for a green organization enables you to know more about environmental knowledge, which I think is important and useful for everyone to convert our home into a better and more sustainable place to live in.
