My name is Carina Putri Paramitha, or Carina for short. I am a 20 year old business administration student at Universitas Indonesia, and currently on my 4 th term. This holiday season, I wanted to do something productive, and I thought applying for an internship program is the right decision for me. I didn’t have much experience in communication field but I was conviced that I should give it a try and I sent my internship application to PRecious Communications as a kick-start in communication industry. The first thing that came into my mind about PR is something that related to media, public relation, and handling client reputation. I believe this will be a gratifying journey for me to enrich my experience and my expertise, as well.
My internship program started on Wednesday, December 20 th 2017. I was introduced to 5 awesome people: Mba Fran, Mas Zul, Mba Bin, Mba Trully, and Meriell. My role was as junior client associate. I was taken to develop business proposals, media monitoring, conducting research, and handling press launch events. At first, I was a bit confused about the task given, but the Indo team was very cooperative and patient to guide me through learning process and adaptation. The working culture was very fun, such as a very warm welcome through welcome lunch, farewell dinner, some treats during overtime, and what’s in the news. They key is, we work smart and play hard. That was the reason why I didn’t feel tired or stressed during the internship. The thing that mattered was about how we loved the task, the job, and the people we’re working with.
I gained valuable experience here. I’m finally able to understand basic knowledge in the PR industry, crafting business proposals, media monitoring, pitching to media partners, and conducting media audits. Working at Precious Indo was like finding a new home, a new family, and finally discover something that I love doing. Thank you for the opportunity! I believe Precious Communications will grow and keep expanding each day, each month, and each year. All the best for the future!
