I am Chloe, a nursing student at Poly U. I applied for the position of a digital marketing intern at FlowClass because I am passionate about connecting with people through outreach and expressing my creativity by writing blogs. My goal in pursuing this job is to explore my potential and contribute my efforts to the field of marketing. During my three-month internship at Flowclass, my primary responsibilities included writing blogs and conducting social media outreach. Due to the distance between my residence and the company’s location, I primarily worked from home. I am thrilled to have been a part of the FlowClass team and value the experience I gained there.

The first thing I appreciate Flowclass internship is the high autonomy and flexibility. Working from home allowed me the freedom to manage my time effectively and work at my own pace when studying nursing. This flexibility not only boosted my productivity but also enhanced my work-life balance.
Furthermore, the collaborative harmonious environment impressed me. Despite being physically apart, there are regular virtual meetings, brainstorming sessions, and constructive feedback every time. This not only strengthened our bonds but also facilitated knowledge-sharing and growth.
Lastly, this experience allowed me to take a glimpse into digital marketing. I got the opportunity to dive deep into the world of content creation. I could explore various topics, showcase my creativity, and use the company’s SEO strategies when writing several blogs.
