From Our Interns
“Digital marketing seemed to be the ‘up and coming’ thing for marketing, but a guest from DP at a Nanyang Business School networking night was already talking about the changing landscape of digital marketing. I was like, “What’s this guy talking about?” Intrigued, I approached him after the event and learnt about the internship opportunity.
“As interns, many times we hold back what we have to say because of the “we are just interns” mindset. One of the main reasons why I’ve enjoyed myself in DP is because I can voice out my thoughts and my opinions are being valued.”
– Ang Zheng Shun, NTU Marketing
“Previously, marketing to me was ads and landing pages, sales funnels and opt-in forms. But how do some people perform so well with the same structures while others fail?
“I have learnt that marketing is not a single silo of domain knowledge, or a few marketing stack technologies. It encompasses psychology, art, logic – and at its core: the understanding of human nature.”
– Andrew Ong, NUS Marketing and University Scholars Programme
“I came in with literally zero knowledge about marketing. If you are a non-business student wondering whether this position is suitable for you, trust me, you do not need much marketing background to find your space here. You just have to learn a little bit more and pick up some terminologies along the way. As long as you are willing to learn, and have the ability to think, you will be fine.
“On our last day of work, our presentation suddenly enlightened me about what I was at DP for. As unbelievable as it may sound, you will get there when the time comes.”
– Yu Anran, NUS Quantitative Finance and University Scholars Programme
“Before joining DP, whenever I thought of marketing, I would think of basic concepts taught in school, be they the 4 ‘P’s, marketing funnel, etc. However, DP challenged those basic concepts as we developed a more sophisticated framework that included more variables relevant to our current context.
“This experience of unlearning and relearning about what is marketing about not only deepened my understanding of this field, but also helped me take away the value of questioning and challenging implicit assumptions.”
– Lim Qian Wei, SMU Marketing and Analytics
