My plans for the summer of 2017

I like to plan my life months in advanced, mainly because I like to set myself goals so I am able to achieve what I want to achieve in the future.

At this moment in time I am looking to do a summer internship, maybe lasting 10 weeks or so in either business and marketing.


Why business?

Marketing works in conjunction with other areas of business such as finance and operations. Rather than me solely focusing on marketing, it will be beneficial for me to have what they call business acumen, step our of my comfort zone and explore other areas of the business. This will also help me to achieve one of my lifetime goals, which is to get an MBA.



How will I get there?

So far I have been applying for various marketing and business summer placement schemes such as IBM and PWC, business consulting is something I wish to explore as well as traditional marketing summer placements such as Sky and Unilever. I will start leveraging my LinkedIn connections by reaching out to them regarding taking me on as an intern over the summer.

That’s where I am with life at the moment; it also explains why I’ve been quiet on my blog recently. I will always try to post an update at least once a week or so, even if nobody ever reads my blog, it’s something I can look back on in the future.
