I’ve been away from my blog for a long long time. I missed writing here a lot. Therefore, right now I am feeling so happy and I am also so excited to share what is happening in my life.
Basically, I am doing internship all the summer.
After all the interviews I had passed through, I got an internship in a global company, as I desired, at the department I want to be in. I started at BP, at the BP Lubricants/Castrol part, as a Marketing intern.
Here is an ordinary day at Castrol:
Meeting time with other interns from Castrol and having our quick breakfast together. Here you see Alican and Izgi, they both are from Marketing department.
Castrol Turkey is absolutely a good marketing school. Since Castrol Turkey team is able to take initiatives in this region and also in the Caspian countries, here there is a lot more than just executing the global marketing strategy. They also create their own strategy based on the market needs and growth potential.
Lunch! We are very punctual for that. At 12:00 sharply, Burcu and Elif, two other Castrol interns from Customer Relations and Pricing respectively, take us from where we sit and together we go downstairs to cafeteria in the building.
We talk, gossip, laugh, maybe laugh a lot in the accompaniment of a tea or coffee.
Sometimes we go to terrace to take a fresh air and meet with other interns from BP.
What am I doing at Castrol? My responsibilities vary, depending on the Marketing team needs. I do market & competitive analyses, analyze customer insights and prepare action plans, help event planning details, create contents for both BP Magazine and websites, create presentations, …
After work, I ordinarily meet Deniz to eat together.
Or I go home and watch TV series. I just finish watching Flash Forward (in 3 days) and love it! It is depressing and totally unfair that it ended after just one season. Whatever…
What am I wearing to work? I usually wear comfortable and simple things to work. Easiest way to be comfortable and simple is to wear dresses, especially in hot summer days.
Dress – KOTON
Bag – ZADIG & VOLTAIRE
Flat shoes – COACH
Necklace – YARGICI
See you soon at the next post! <3
