The Mach Media Intern Experience of Mona Coorevits

By Mona Coorevits, Management Assistant intern

As part of my bachelor’s degree in Office Management, I had to do a three-month internship. I had the pleasure to complete mine at Mach Media, a marketing and communications consultancy in Ghent, Belgium.

During my interview, I was completely sold to the kind atmosphere and the authentic (but also modern) look of the office. I felt so welcome and I couldn’t wait to start the internship.

On the first day I was a little nervous, who wouldn’t be? I quickly came to realize this was completely unnecessary. Everything was already set up for me, I got a tour through the office and had short one-on-one meetings with everyone during the day to break the ice. I immediately felt like part of the team because I received a professional email, my own laptop, personal logins for the computer programs, etc.

I learned so much during these 3 months. I had the chance to do a little bit of everything and work with different colleagues. I’ve had such a variety of tasks, it’s crazy! They pushed me to work independently, but on the other hand to be in constant contact with colleagues. There was a lot of multitasking involved. I don’t think there is a better place than Mach Media to get experience as a graduating student stepping into the real world!

Mach Media is such an ambitious company and it’s great to have been a part of the team. There is a great “work hard, play hard” vibe in the office. Colleagues really value the interaction with each other and therefore organize activities on a regular basis to bring the team closer. That’s why Mach Media works so well and is able to keep on growing. In honor of the company’s decade-long growth, I had the fun opportunity to help organize the various activities for the celebration of Mach Media’s 10 year anniversary.

My last week at Mach Media… It makes me a little sad to think about leaving the office. I can only hope to find a future workplace as pleasant as Mach Media.
I want to give a big thank you to everyone within the company for making me feel welcome, as well as all the support and help I received during these months.

To wrap this up, I would definitely recommend Mach Media to every student as an internship! Believe me when I say – it’s worth it!

Mona’s food tip: If you have the chance, visit the Lousbergmarkt. It’s delicious, with fresh products and only a 5 minute walk from the office.
