I completed my practical training in a start-up company called Aitovire that was formed in 2019. They are located in Tampere but have business all around Finland. The company consists of two friends who came up with a business idea and made it real. Both have worked in big companies for a long time and been very successful. Their core business focus is to offer traditional/innovative marketing for entrepreneurs in Finland.
My position was Marketing Assistant, and my job was to provide support for sales related to video- and advertising projects. My main part of the practical training job was to conduct research for certain cities, towns and villages in Finland and form up a list of possible clients to contact in that specific city, town, or village. These were not centred in one major area in Finland, but rather all-around Finland. In addition to the research and contact lists, I was participating in the advertisement making, content creation. I was also in charge of making a trailer video for an app that can be downloaded to your phone or tablet.
This work experience was very rewarding in multiple ways. It gave me an understanding of different ways of advertising small – medium sized entrepreneurial companies. I got the opportunity to improve my visual eye and design skills related to advertisements. As the company was located in Tampere and I was in Jyväskylä, my time management and remote distance working skills were improved.
I highly recommend Aitovire for practical training place if you are interested in marketing and advertisements design. I can assure you that working in Aitovire, you will get a great chance to improve your skills and to see what it is like to work in a company where you feel like you are part of the family.
