Martyn Megaloudis is an official CAPA blogger for fall 2018, sharing his story in weekly posts on CAPA World. A Marketing major at the University of Pittsburgh, he is studying abroad in Sydney this semester.
In this week's post, Martyn tells us about his internship responsibilities at Unbridled with consultant Louise Taylor and what he hopes to achieve by the end of the semester.
For my CAPA internship, I am interning as a marketing and communications intern for Unbridled Pty LTD. Unbridled is the brainchild of Louise Taylor, who is a motivational speaker and sales consultant. It is a small company—the first time that I have ever been part of one—where the only other employee is Louise herself. I work from her home office in Illawong, which is about an hour away by public transport. While I am the only other person besides Louise, I do have the company of Louise’s golden retriever, who, while lacking in technical skills is definitely a team player and a joy to have around. Working in a smaller setup is something I am not used to, but I’m excited to see what I can learn from interning at a startup.
