Ciao a tutti! Finally we completed our mission and an exciting challenge is awaiting us.
As you may have seen on Facebook, we are two Belgian students that wanted to do an Italian internship. Allow us to introduce ourselves first…
We got to know each other on university college, as we both study marketing. Last year we decided to join forces, and to look for a foreign experience. Our personal journey began…
Of course, we didn’t get an internship with a finger snap, a long process of teamwork preceded.
At first we did it the classical way: sending resumes and cover letters to multiple companies, without much result. After spending a few weeks sending a zillion mails, we decided to change our tack.
Using social media to find an internship was a very strategic choice. It’s with the help of LinkedIn, we found our current company: TheGoodOnes. It was love at first sight! But how did we manage to let them fall in love with us?
In order to become TheBelovedOnes, we devised a whole new concept. In fact we even used the most common thing lovers give to each other when they fall in love: chocolates. There’s also a link with our country, as we are famous for our Leonidas pralines. So we seduced our target company with a nice box of pralines, sent together with a personalized card.
This card contained a link to prezi, which you should check out. In this presentation we chose two pralines to compare ourselves with, using cool and fun puns! In a very short time, we got very popular on Twitter and Facebook thanks to a lot of people sharing this presentation!
We never imagined our concept would be this successful, and we are lucky to work for a company as TheGoodOnes. The internship sounds already promising to us, and we hope it will be very informative and exciting!
At last we want to thank TheGoodOnes for entering this adventure with us. You’re welcome to our blog for the next three months!
