We are often asked what an internship at Tractive is like and what better way to find out than having the interns tell us themselves! Our 3 Marketing interns are Christina, Daniel, and Florian. In the following interview, they will tell us what they like most at Tractive and give us insights in their areas of responsibility and future plans!
Christina, Daniel, and Florian – all of you are part of our marketing team for two months now: Which tasks did you take over?
Christina: During my internship, I focus on all aspects of Content Marketing. We were talking about my strengths already at the job interview. And one of my strengths is definitely the creativity I can bring to the team. Now I can allow my creativity full bent. My tasks are writing blog articles, creating newsletters, and supervising our Pinterest and Instagram accounts, as well as setting up cooperations. Recently, my own project was realized – “Tractive Stimmen”.
Daniel: We were also talking about the field I see myself in during the job interview. I am mainly working in performance marketing and use most of my time on search engine advertising and display advertising. But I also take over other little tasks and projects when help is needed.
Florian: I can only confirm that. Tractive allows us to work in the field in which we want to get deeper insights. I mainly research and publish Facebook content, acquire new cooperation partners like bloggers, work on different projects and implement a strategy for Twitter. The work is really diversified.
Sounds really interesting. What do you like most at Tractive?
Florian: I like the strategic work for the project “Tractive Start” or also for Twitter the most. Also, getting insights in tools like Facebook Business Manager, Mailchimp, Google Analytics, SimilarWeb or Canva is really interesting.
Christina: I especially like the fact that I can allow my creativity full bent and that the marketing team is always open for new ideas. Also, the young team, the team events and having fun at work are great benefits at Tractive.
Daniel: Yes, I agree with you – the team spirit is incomparable. There are really great people working at Tractive and if you have questions you can ask anyone anytime.

What have you learned during your experience at Tractive that will help you for your future?
Christina: You should do what you like, then you can be really good in it.
Florian: That’s right! It is very important to gain some practical experience. Then you can find out which tasks you do passionately. If you really like what you do, you will do it great.
Daniel: I have made so many new experiences in my field of work and I learn a lot. I know that I really love working within a young, international company.
Okay, and what is the next step after your internship?
Christina: After the internship, I will complete my bachelor exams which we will master at the end of June. (Smirks) If I will do a master program, I will start it in a few years. Now I would like to gain some more practical experience in online marketing.
Daniel: Florian and I will start a master program at FH Hagenberg in Autumn.
Thank you to Christina, Daniel, and Florian for providing us with these insights and we are happy to have you all on board! Enjoy the rest of your time here at Tractive!
