Our Intern Charlotte has been pretty busy and after 5 weeks working she gives you the run down of what she's been up to and what she has planned...

The offices have been complaining about me. Apparently I’m never in the office, my lunches are too healthy and the final straw was when I was criticized for my tea making ability. 

All are very accurate complaints. I have made some embarrassing brews but I don’t think it’s a reflection on my tea ability, I do have healthy lunches but as a social media intern, my Instagram must be filled with healthy lunches so I can use the #healthyliving and, in truth, I have spent a lot of time out of the office.

The important thing is that my time out of the office has been work related! Within the first few weeks I had attended an SEO conference; full of very interesting speakers, helped on the annual golf day and meeting clients, joined the whole team in an escape challenge, spent the day photographing Leeds and visited the Manchester office to meet the Calibre Search team over there.  For a summer internship, I would say I have done pretty well! Everything I have attended has filled the social media feeds and, as a social media nerd, I get a real buzz from every click, like, share or retweet.

Nearly five weeks have passed, my days are packed with things to do; blogs to write, posts to produce, campaigns to start and events to attend.  Nearly five weeks working and I feel like I have been part of the team for months. I know that after the internship is over I will be Calibre Search’s social media stalker, partly critiquing everything produced, but mainly jealous I’m not the one producing it.

Last week was the first social media campaign I worked on. #Wimbledont was a competition for the Calibre team and other offices to compete in three 5-minute challenges across the week for a chance to win a Wimbledon themed hamper. The challenges included a clipboard rally, a Wimbledon outfit challenge and an Andy Murray impersonation challenge. With some big help from the team we got some great responses and the team at Branded3 won the hamper for some very creative entries.

On top of all of the work and events I was invited to join the whole team in the annual trip to York races. I was delighted! The day was fantastic, despite having a few of the team missing we still had a great day and I actually ended up making more money than I took, annoying a good proportion of the losers in the group.

So what will my last few weeks entail? As an intern, I have not been actively researching candidates, clients or companies, that isn’t my role in here, however, I have noticed that with a heavy Built Environment recruitment team there has been an unbelievably small number of women in the industry. We have women recruiting for the sector but so few women in it. Not a surprise to most, but when so many sectors are now beginning to achieve a greater equality (Well… apart from the BBC apparently!)  construction, engineering and others similar are really behind the curve.

So I am setting myself a goal for my final few weeks, to produce content promoting the achievements of women. I don’t expect to change anything but I want to spend some time shouting about the numbers, very talented women working in male dominated industries, and the even bigger amount of potential talent out there.

It’s great working for a company where you have the freedom to be creative with ideas. Some of my ideas have been unique and deliverable some have been awful and embarrassing, despite the latter I have never felt nervous about pitching them to the team. This bad brew making, healthy lunch eating, skiver is still very happy and looking forward to what the next few weeks will bring… who knows maybe one day they will agree to my idea to add a “Leeds United Appreciation” page to the website and having #UnlimitedMalteaserMondays…
