Internship Experience with Sharp Circles
Who are you?
I am a Masters degree holder in Business Information Technology, from RMIT, Melbourne, Victoria, and I worked as an intern at Sharp Circles. Sharp Circles is an Australian SEO company, providing customer focused SEO packages in the form of no lock-in subscription plans suitable for small-medium sized businesses in Australia and worldwide.
What you've learned?
I attended the professional presentation of SEO which covered fundamental steps of SEO from the beginning, as well as comparing the two search engines - Google and Bing. It helped me to gain different knowledge of the current trends regarding SEO in the Australian market. This helped me to learn from what the speaker says because I will be able to gather all the information and it is another way for me to learn both about the current market and any questions arises from the audiences. Therefore, I think this event help me to learn more in-depth of the actual overview of the company itself and what other businesses think toward the SEO market in Australia.
What did you do?
The company allows me to go to the event which a company host this event. I did organise food and beverages for the break as well as give out feedback survey to audiences attending this event.
What were your responsibilities?
I am responsible for the Facebook live stream on the company’s page (Sharp Circle FanPage). Also, I bring my camera to record what the speaker said. The camera gives better vision when compared to the phone. Unfortunately, we’re only able to record the second half of this presentation because there is a problem at the first half on the camera of the first half of the presentation SEO packages in Australia .
Also, when I have to analyses all the speech a presenter talked about during the presentation and type it out as we called transcripts. Because we record the presentation which makes it easy for us the maintain every moment.
What can be improved?
Improvement need for future presentation could be more interaction with the audiences such as ask them questions rather than wait for the audience to ask. Some audiences are sitting on the sofa which this shows that there were not enough table and chairs for the audiences, I think we could improve this in future events.
Also, encourage the audiences to survey because some of them did not complete the survey while most of them did not provide information needed such as their website or their thoughts about the presentation.
Furthermore, we could organise the microphone for the speaker as the room is quite big; sometimes it might be hard for audiences sitting at the back roll to hear. Even encourage all audiences to move in front so the room can be filled up when a person at the back take photo from the back it would look there are more people interests in this event.
