My Online PR & Marketing Content Internship
- 08 May 2015 08 May 2015
I am now at the end of my eight week Online PR and Marketing Content Internship with Health and Fitness Travel and I can truly say it could not have been a more worthwhile experience. With a background in fitness and a love for travel, I was eager to discover what it would be like to work for a travel company that specialises in luxury wellness holidays. Unlike most other internship experiences, at Health and Fitness Travel they give you real responsibilities across an array of PR and marketing projects; and it is because of this experience, that I am now inspired to return to university to complete a Master’s programme in Health Marketing.
With the freedom to manage my own schedule, I learnt to plan my schedule weeks in advance, allowing me to hit the ground running each day. From the first day, I was given a broad range of writing, website management and marketing tasks to self-manage and keep my days varied. Undoubtedly, the best part of this internship was the opportunity to learn on the job, particularly with the various creative writing tasks for blog posts, newsletters, and eventually press releases and marketing copy.

Along with the writing tasks, I also learnt how to use adobe programs like Dreamweaver and Photoshop, as well as HTML coding and various web-base marketing strategies such as SEO and social media platforms. Not only are these skills transferrable and big CV boosters, but they also allowed me to publish my own work on the blog I had done!
At Health and Fitness Travel, they are a small supportive and close knit team that really try to ensure you get the most out of your internship experience. Even though it has been only 8 weeks, this internship has provided me with invaluable PR and marketing experience and a great insight into the industry of wellness travel.
Thank you to everyone at Health and Fitness Travel!
