After finishing my studies in commercial economics, I applied for multiple jobs, but they all turned me down because there were other candidates with more experience, even for junior roles! I was eager to learn more about Online Marketing and specifically Data-Driven Marketing so I applied for a traineeship in Growth Hacking.
My time at The Talent Institute is giving me exactly what I need to better prepare myself for the current job market. I really liked the idea of one month of full-time training to kick start my Growth Hacking knowledge before starting at a company and implementing my skills.
With this traineeship, I feel more empowered and ready to be a business professional.
Currently, I am in the fourth month of my traineeship. I work at Urbee, the shared e‑bike service in Amsterdam. I am currently working on their new app and I am responsible for the current and a new, still to be developed, website.
Urbee is a start-up evolving to a scale-up, which I believe, It is the perfect landscape for a Growth Hacker!”
The people who work at The Talent Institute are young, extremely energetic and fun. I also love the drinks and the community events which makes The Talent Institute feel more like a community than a school.
The most valuable takeaway from my traineeship so far is that I have learnt where my passion lies. I really enjoy optimising conversions and developing the user experience. Every day I go to work, I do what I love and contribute to a better world with electric bike-sharing. How awesome is that!
