Hi, I’m Talha and I’m eighteen years old. I’m currently in my third and final year at Zadkine studying International Management Assistant. Part of my studies mean I have to complete an internship and I joined Venture Café Rotterdam in March after my teacher recommended it. I mailed the team and was invited to introduce myself. Luckily, I came during a Thursday Gathering so I could see immediately how exciting it could be to have my placement here. I could also see lots of opportunities to improve myself.
What I’m hoping to learn is how businesses work and how they achieve their goals. I also want to improve myself by being better at communicating with others and being more focused.
My tips for future interns are that they should know what they want to learn beforehand and what they want to improve upon. A final tip would be to research the company first of all, so you know what you’re getting yourself into.
