Growing Your Career Early with Dell Technologies: Zuzana's Marketing Internship Experience
Zuzana R. | Product Marketing Intern | Slovakia
Originally Published: January 11, 2023
What is your current role in your internship?
I have been a Product Marketing Intern for almost 2 years. In that time, I have participated in various interesting projects, which gave me an opportunity to learn a lot and get to know many colleagues from different teams. The biggest project I recently worked on was creating an internal site where our product line managers can share updated news and information on products and solutions. The aim was to efficiently facilitate cross-department collaboration and communication with our multiple stakeholders. This site is a central knowledge base for all the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) Client Solutions Groups. In addition, I’ve participated in other projects such as forming an internal newsletter and supporting with product launches.
How did you find your internship at Dell Technologies and why did you decide to join the company?
What are you working on, any current projects?
What do you like the most about interning for Dell Technologies?
What I like the most about interning for Dell Technologies are the opportunities that come with it. There are many activities and volunteering possibilities where Dell employees can expand their network, perhaps find new friends, and gain valuable experience. I usually hit “sign up” or “join us” for almost every opportunity I receive. My first activity was a blogging contest for all interns in Slovakia, where we wrote a blog about our experience at Dell Technologies and shared it on our LinkedIn profile. Its aim was to teach us how to write a blog, while reflecting on our experience and spreading awareness about the nice opportunities at Dell, I loved it!
Another big project I joined was Development Open Days. We are a group who organizes development sessions and workshops with professional speakers in all of EMEA. It started as a local project in Slovakia, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the transition to an online workplace, the project was able to spread to other countries. Within the core team we play different roles; technical support, marketing to spread awareness, and session moderators.
What have you learned so far that will be helpful in your future and career path?
I learned how important and helpful it is to keep a smile on your face and be positive, you never know when your colleague is having a bad day. Also, taking initiative brings you more than you ask for. I still plan to keep up my spirit of always hitting that “sign up” button and taking opportunities as they come. These decisions never disappoint me and have always surprised me with new friends and fun. Learning is a continuous process, only you can stop yourself from becoming better. I also learned to use my free time more efficiently. When I’m at a slowing point and have nothing else to do, I sign up to take a course about a topic that interests me.
