Katia Martins joined us at 1 Wimpole Street, home to The Royal Society of Medicine (1WS) as an intern on the 15th of March 2018. Events Office Internship/post-grad opportunities is something 1WS support every year.
Katia is starting her third and final year at the University of Hertfordshire, studying Events Management with Spanish and Portuguese. Katia joined 1WS in order to learn more about what happens behind the setting up of an event, and to have a chance of improving her communications skills and develop her knowledge further. Whilst working at 1WS, Katia learnt how to handle an event from the inside out, she also learnt office based skills and working in a team of higher level, including operations and finance.
Katia believes 1WS has helped her tremendously with her final year at university as she will have to create her own event as her final project and as a result can input all the skills she has learnt whilst working here.
Once Katia graduates from university, her goal is to find a job within the events industry which will allow her to travel all over the world, and she believes having 1WS as her reference will truly benefit her in the future.
Overall, Katia’s experience at 1WS was very positive and different to what she originally expected as she had previously said she wouldn’t want to work in an office environment, however after joining 1WS with such an amazing team, and grasping knowledge and experience, she leaves us with a different opinion.
We wish Katia all the success and thank her for all her hard work at 1WS!
