On a daily level, we need to analyze a lot of things, make a lot of decisions and decide on a bunch of models, approaches etc. Off course, some of those are small things which are a part of our daily routine. But some of those are rather big and tend to have a major effect on us, as well as on our company. I am talking about the projects which are the bread and butter of our business, and the focus of our work. More precisely, I am talking about our efforts to evaluate projects and decide whether to accept the project or not.

3 things to know when landed in the middle of the project

A few months ago, I’ve started working at Inchoo as a project manager.  This eCommerce company serves many different businesses worldwide through 10-year history and I was keen to know which project I will get first. While waiting, I’ve gotten to know my colleagues, learned about some of the key processes, tools and how to tweak the coffee machine. Initially, I expected I’ll have a clean start with a project, and that the whole process will have a linear learning curve for both me and the client. I was wrong.

How I landed a marketing internship, what I learned from it and what makes Inchoo special?

Hi there, I suppose I should make some kind of an introduction. My name is Paula and I’m a Croatian studying at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Venlo, the Netherlands. The programme I chose is business related, called International Business and Management Studies. I chose it not just because it contains a ton of projects and teamwork but also because I have this mandatory study abroad semester and two internships with each lasting for at least three and a half months.

The story of how I landed an internship at Inchoo and the story of study abroad are connected, but I’m going to cut to the case, for your sake.
