Q: Why did you choose Denmark?
A: I met a Danish group that visited my school in Spain. They were polite and smiling, and these things attracted me. I always wanted to work in companies with young and international people and also I knew that in the country there are many entrepreneurs so I told myself: I need to try to live in Denmark.
Q: Why did you choose to study Marketing Management?
A: I always knew I wanted to study Advertising. Before coming to Denmark, I studied an AP Degree in Spain and a Top-up in England in International Business Communication. I consider myself a global citizen. When I found out the possibility of studying Marketing Management in Denmark, I knew it was for me, so I applied.
Q: How did you find your internship?
A: My goal was to find an internship in Denmark in the big cities, like Copenhagen or Aarhus, so I started to search through Google. I knew I wanted to work with digital marketing, even if I had no experience with it. I applied to all the digital marketing companies I found and I got answers from many of them. For me, Lead Supply was the most interesting. I had an interview with them, they saw my ambition and enthusiasm and offered me a place.
Q: What are your tasks at Lead Supply?
A: Every 2-3 weeks we are doing workshops where I learn new things. I learn about digital marketing and I am using my mother tongue to help the Danish company on the Spanish and the Mexican market. I am working with SEO, looking for the best keywords and writing landing pages. Also, I am in touch with Spanish and Mexican newspapers and I am writing advertorials for them. I am also responsible for creating content for newsletters. Sometimes I am participating at fairs to promote the internship to other students.
Q: How do you feel about your internship? Does it meet your expectations?
A: An internship in Denmark can change your life. I know it changed mine in just 2 months and now I know more clearly what I want. I am glad for my internship at Lead Supply because I am in a continuous process of learning something new daily and now my vision for the future is clearer than ever.
Q: How are your colleagues? How have you been welcomed in the company?
A: It was easy to integrate. Lead Supply welcomed the interns with a party and they organise events so we get to know each other. I have many international colleagues and it is easy to bond with each other. We even have a ping pong table where we gather around and play together.
Q: What does the company do? What is their main activity?
A: Lead Supply is a fintech (financial tech) company which has as mission to make the loan market more transparent, convenient and digital. This company is the portal between users who are looking for a loan and banks.
Q: What is your advice for other students when it comes to choosing an internship company?
A: I recommend them to know in which area of marketing they would like to do the internship in before starting the searches. Once they know this, the process will be easier. I recommend them to do a lot of research on Google and always use LinkedIn because most of the companies are online. It is always a good idea to participate in Company Dating events organized by Dania Academy, too. I recommend to have a well-prepared cover letter and CV. It helps a lot to be organized and track the emails sent.
