As my stint with Jublia comes to an end, I would like to share my experience as a Business Development intern. For three months, I worked closely with the Business Development team to manage and run sales campaigns in existing and new markets. I was never treated as an intern and I never felt like one. During my stay, I was regarded as an equal with a voice.
From a dorm room project, Jublia has come a long way to having her footprints all over the world in a short span of four years. This was not due to luck, but rather the hard work, grit and foresight of her founders. Coupled with a competent team, Jublia is able to cement herself as a global events technology company. It was humbling to be able to partake and witness the day-to-day operations of this company.
I am glad to be have given the opportunity to attend the Singapore MICE Forum (SMF) 2017 as a delegate for Jublia. The event gave me the liberty to mingle with various personnel from the MICE industry. After the event, I managed to secure a meeting with a publication for a Jublia feature! We will be releasing new innovations in Sep (stay tuned!)
To wrap things up, I will leave you with my main takeaways from Jublia. 1) A company’s culture will impact your experience. 2) Take every opportunity to learn. 3) Do not be afraid to make mistakes. It is time for me to head back to school!
