I am now certain that working in social media management is something I would like to pursue further after my studies.
Romy Smit
Intern in Social Media Management at Spotted by Locals

"As a Social Media Management Intern at Spotted by Local I got the chance to improve my writing, particularly in article form, and to learn more about how social media and travel work together to bring people tips and news on where to go. As doing an internship is compulsory for IBACS, and I had done a Media minor and focus courses on Social Media and Management, I decided to search for local and international internships that delve in Social Media. I found out about Spotted by Locals from a fellow classmate and friend of mine."

Opportunities

"Since I have started working at Spotted by Locals I have been honored with the opportunity to learn more about the company and how it uses social media to interact with their large community, while also improving my writing in a professional setting, all from the comfort of my home. I have also learned more about how to communicate and interact with local ‘Spots’ and their owners, record and present media statistics in a clear way to my colleagues, and have just learned more about which platforms do and do not work well for Spotted by Locals."

Learn and grow

"Of course, there have been difficulties, and I have made some mistakes in the process of this internship. But it is always important to learn and grow from your mistakes in order to prevent them from happening in the future. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing group, to learn and grow as both an individual and as a worker, and to have had the amazing experience of getting to know how social media and contemporary companies work together to bring us the information we want and need. I am now certain that working in social media management is something I would like to pursue further after my studies, and that I would like to continue working in the social media field in the future."
