Experiences on individual projects

Advertisement Research:

At first I have assigned for The Daily Prothom –alo newspaper advertisements update. I was going through everyday’s newspaper and find out big &colored advertisements. Then I putted them in a Microsoft excel file according to company name, address, contact number and given agency name. The purpose of this assignment is to find out the companies who are giving advertisements without linking any agencies. So we can target these companies and make our future client. I was updating The Prothom-alo newspaper from 01 May to 20 August.

Outcome: I have learned the current conditions of advertising agencies and companies from this assigned work. My observation is the telecom company, Bilders Company and furniture’s company gives big and colorful advertisement almost everyday. Asiatic, Bitopi, Grey, PaperRyme etc. advertising agencies lead the market. Our Company can look forward for different bank, universities, and furniture’s companies to make their clients.

Face book Page Plan:

This is my first project with my co-worker Tasnim. Our supervisor told us to visit national and international companies face book page and find out the reasons of increasing member and popularity. We visited many face book page like Bollywood, BMW, Gucci, Prothom-alo, Aarong Cadbury etc and find out almost same materials like company profile, mission, vision, photos, discussions etc. These things were not in ZANALA Bangladesh ltd. page. So, some new things that is missions, visions, company profile, photos of our works and office activities, videos and giving messages in special occasions. Our plan was not 100% successful and supervisor told us to make unique and dynamic plan. But some ideas were implemented and within three months there is more then 200 members joined our face book page.

Outcome: When I was making face book page, visits many national and international companies. Here I can see information, pictures and regular updates everyday which enhances my knowledge about these companies. People can find the latest news of ZANALA Bangladesh ltd after seeing this page and its now a new communication tools.

CV Sorting

ZANALA Bangladesh ltd gave advertisements in Bdjobs.com for accountant, copywriter and creative designer post. More then 900 CVs have come to career e-mail. I have assigned for sorting all the CVs and selection. First I leveled all the CVs according to their post in e-mail, go through all the CVs and saved in different three folders. Then my supervisor told me to choose 20 each CV of accountants and creative designers according to their requirements. I selected 20 accounts and creative designer CV and submitted to my supervisor. Also making call for interview on selected time and date for creative designer.

Outcome: After seeing all the CVs I have learned that when any company gives advertisement for a post, we should understand all the requirements and expectations. I saw many CVs which were not matched with the requirement and these CVs were automatically canceled. Also know that the process the recruitment system, expectations of the company etc.

Database update:

  • Private Bank: This is a big assignment of mine that in making a database of the entire private bank of Dhaka. I have to collect name, designation, department, address, contact number, e-mail and web address of executive members and ATM card & Machine. For collecting information I went some bank physically, some from Internet and phone call. I gathered almost 26 private banks like Dutch Bangla Bank, United commercial Bank, Brac Bank, City bank, HSBC Bank, National bank etc. It took 15-18 days to complete and Tasnim helped me a lot in this assignment.

Outcome: Making bank database is very difficult to me because they are    very restricted to give any information. Even they were not interest to talk about their executive members. But I was able to collects the information. My communication skill has been improved and bank website visits made my vast knowledge about bank.

Feedback

Linked with My learning

After all the discussions I can say that my three months internship experience at ZANALA Bangladesh Ltd. has given a lot of experience and my works were totally connected with my education. These is,

It’s a combination of Traditional Media and New Media. Documentary, Logo design, Brochure design, Audio, Calendar etc are the examples of traditional media. New media tools are Web site design, InfoCenter or Kiosk. I gather knowledge about documentary subtitle, bank data base update of InfoCenter and website. I have applied my educational knowledge in practical work. Today every organization wants to make TVC, RDC, Print advertisements and also wants to make website. New media holds out a possibility of on-demand access to content any time, anywhere, on any digital device, as well as interactive user feedback, creative participation and community formation around the media content. So that people cant know all the information by using any medium.

Advertisement research in another work which is helped me a lot to know about the level of advertisements, current situations of market.

I was working with admin, team work, time management and cope with official environment is related with my business studies subjects (Minor Courses).I can  understand their management system. That learning helped me a lot during my internship period.

I have got an experience about communication agencies. How business development unit is communicate with clients, then discuss the requirements to designers and web developer, production process run and then finally deliver the products to clients.

I liked the working system and environment of communication agencies. It will be very comfortable and exciting for me if I can work any agency like this.

Visiting immense and reputed companies was also an achievement for me because I saw their office environment and works. I have visited these offices as a representative of ZANALA Bangladesh Ltd.

The internship fulfill all of my expectations which I had before started my internship.

 

Self evaluation

  • I have learned from Internship

I have experienced from practical environment with theoretical education. Assisting Business Development department as a junior and doing necessary research and paper works in understanding the current scenario of Advertising Industry in Bangladesh. Now I can work on Microsoft excel without fear. My communication skill, time management and observation power has improved.

  • Advantages of doing your internship at your chosen host

I wanted to gain experiences about communication agencies and ZANALA Bangladesh Ltd. gave me the opportunity to accomplish my expectation.

  • In a scale of 1 to 10, how will you rate your internship experience?

I will me rate 8 out of ten. Because I think I was regular and I worked a lot throughout the working period. I never thought myself as an intern, rather I thought myself as a part of the organization. I always maintain rules and regulations and am focused on my responsibilities. In future I can apply my experiences. So, I think the rating truly reflect my experience.

  • Please provide any suggestion, if you have any for ULAB.

Internship experience is very important in our four year educations. We have done it at the end of our education. But I personally realized that it should be on the middle of our education. So that a student can indentifies own strong and weak areas and improved themselves.
