To get a glimpse of my activities at my internship, the planning of an ordinary day is shown.
The start of the day: checking my emails, calendar activities and reminders to send. But first, coffee!
A first meeting with a potential customer: giving a sales presentation in the hopes of acquiring new users. The supervisor is present to check if I tell all the details needed, and to answer any questions I cannot answer myself.
After the presentation, I enter a chat with my company supervisor. To discuss what went well and what did not. Also, the client itself is discussed. What might be the chances of them buying, or what price would suit them the best?
Time to follow the presentation up with an email. A new appointment is planned, the presentation is sent, and maybe even a voucher code. Also important, a price is defined for the client.
Time for a lunch break! Chatting with colleagues about things unrelated to work can be very relaxing. And of course, any hunger is now solved.
Time to get back to work. A second check of the email inbox is due. And then, some time to work on my own assignment: the advisory plan.
After focusing hard on my research, it is time for some relaxation. Who at the office dares to accept my challenge to a game of table tennis?
A follow-up has been planned with a prospect I spoke with a couple of weeks ago. They had time to think about the offer, to discuss it internally in their own organisation, and maybe even to use their voucher code and look around the New Heroes platform. In this case, time to celebrate, because they chose to purchase licenses for their whole organisation.
To close the day, a sales meeting is held. During this hour, everyone gives updates on what they did in the past few days. Help or advice can be given and asked for. The deal that was just closed is also discussed. What company? How much turnover is realised? How long did they sign for?
The day is done, and it is time to go home. The train in Zaltbommel leaves at 5:17 PM, so I will be home before 6:00PM.
