Amandine, our latest intern, joins us from France, after studying Marketing and Management to find out more about business life in the UK. In this blog, we get to know her better and find out why she is interested in being an intern at Capita TI.
I have a bachelor degree in Marketing and Management. Until recently I was working in recruitment at a temping agency.
I am very interested in international business.
I think it is important for a company to be understood by all of their customers, especially if they want to expand to international markets.
Languages are very important for me, because it is the best way to discover different cultures and meet different people. Language brings us closer by sharing with people.
I studied Marketing, Management and Business Development in France. I learned all the basic knowledge that you need to build up a company. During my studies, we also had to lead group projects so we could practice what we learned. The best part was the internship, especially the one we had to do abroad. This was the perfect opportunity to discover another country, language and culture.
I would say my recruitment experience. I didn’t have much experience before this, but in few weeks I totally adapted myself to the agency.
By the end I had expanded my client portfolio and developed a really good relationship with them and my colleagues.
I would like to work in an international company. I really want to be part of several projects and hopefully be responsible for a team.
Recently, I would say that I’ve had to face new challenges, and it’s quite exciting.
I like sport, mainly running and playing football. I like to meet friends, just to go for a drink or a good meal. I am also a big movie fan.
My 2 brothers, they work together at their own company, and it works very well. I am very proud of them and what they did to achieve that. They are very good people and they have always looked after me.
The first time that I went to a Boots store (a pharmacy) in Manchester, I needed to buy toothpaste. But I didn’t pay enough attention to what I was buying. And finally the next morning, I nearly brushed my teeth with a denture adhesive cream!
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes and talk to people. Good things will come from these conversations.
