How was your time at Springworks?
I joined Springworks in April 2021 as a Software developer Intern but eventually took up the Marketing intern position. During my Internship, I had a lot of fun, learned a lot of things.
Being from a tech background, everything was very new for me. However, I met a lot of friendly people who supported me and have an amazing work ethic.
What all projects did you work on during your internship with Springworks?
Since I joined as an intern, I got my hands dirty with everything. I explored various fields and learned new things. I started with marketing and SEO, link-building website domains.
I also took on customer support daily. I was also interested in the product side and therefore worked on Trivia, adding new quizzes, quality checks with old quizzes, etc.
What are your views on remote work?
I find remote work very convenient and flexible, like to choose my own work hours depending on my productivity. I Find remote work to have many advantages like saving a lot of money and time and spending time with my family. I never imagined that after engineering, I would get to spend so much time with my family.
The best part of remote work for me is that I can wake up and go to work. However, I do miss working from the office!
Why a startup?
I believe one can have their own identity when working for a startup. You have the freedom to execute new ideas and techniques. You can make and maintain more relations, and know more people. I think my efforts are tangible.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I want to finish my MBA and would love to lead a team on tech-related projects. I believe I have a nag for tech.
Walk us through a day in your life
As a marketing Intern at Springworks, my day usually begins with locating relevant high authority domains and reaching out to them for links and infographic placement.
Post that, I would answer questions about our products on popular forums such as Reddit & Quora and mention them on numerous products & business listing websites. This is followed by a quality check of our product’s database and adding new questions on trending topics for our quizzes.
I also respond to any queries coming in from our customers, and adding a copy for our product’s UI would conclude my work for the day.
Post work, I like to watch and play football, jump rope and visit the gym occasionally. Other days, I just stay in and play FIFA or practice a new song on my kalimba.
Your biggest takeaway(s)?
My biggest takeaway from this internship is, “One should never be afraid to take risks.” I am thrilled to be a part of this organization.
