Interview with Zsuzsi Csoh, Marketing Intern

This week, marketing intern Zsuzsi Csoh gave an interview. She shared the tasks she performs at the company, how she stays up to date and how she maintains her creativity

How did you start working in the field?

Compared to the others, I stand out, because I’m not directly working in event management. I did my previous internship as a banquet intern, so I’m already familiar with corporate events and weddings, and I’m just a few days away from my final exams and officially getting my degree in Tourism and Hospitality with a specialisation in event management. I have always loved the buzz and variety of events, but even during my studies I felt like I was lacking something, as I rarely really got to express my creativity. That’s how I got interested in marketing and that’s how I joined ConceptFlow as a marketing intern.

What tasks do you have working in marketing?

In a nutshell, my amazing co-workers are responsible for delivering quality events and I’m responsible for making sure the world hears about them.
I manage our social media, create and publish photo and video content, write newsletters, but there are also activities that are more behind the scenes, like web development putting together a brochure. Beyond planning, I thoroughly enjoy the follow-up, analyzing the success of various content, reviewing statistics, and shaping future strategies accordingly.

How do you stay up to date with trends and changes?

I believe that if you’re open to new things, these will find you. You have to keep up on some level, especially for those who work in social media. Algorithms change every day, apps disappear, and new ones take their place. These apps form different communities where trends develop. Of course, you also need to know the target audience and the message of the company, and it’s important to adapt to them to stay authentic. Not everyone has to ride all the trends, it’s important to be selective about what you want to explore.

Where do you get your endless creativity?

I don’t feel like I have endless creativity at all. The first step was acknowledging that the level of inspiration isn’t linear; there are ups and downs. I used to feel like a failure if inspiration didn’t come from within naturally, but now I know how to draw from the outside world. I have go-to websites I visit if I get stuck at work, but often stepping away from the original task helps. I start a new personal project, craft, or draw. These activities usually fill me with so much enthusiasm and motivation that I can easily overcome the original problem.

Why is it worth working at ConceptFlow?

This is my favorite workplace so far, even though I’ve always loved working.
ConceptFlow has given me the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. This team is incredibly enthusiastic and knows no limits; here, effort is more valuable than any prior knowledge. Our office is such an inspiring environment that if I don’t come in for a few days, I miss it. It’s not just the coffee breaks – though that is often priceless- but the dedication, work ethic and sense of responsibility we share. There’s no hierarchy, we’re all equals, yet I can look up to several of my colleagues.
I wish everyone a workplace like this!

What is the best feedback you have received so far in your job?

Two specific occasions come to mind. I hadn’t been working at the company for a month when we listed the essential skills for event management by collectively highlighting each team member’s strengths. I work more separately from the others, so I assumed that they would have a harder time evaluating my skills, but I was amazed that they already knew me after just three weeks.

I also appreciate that our bosses hold periodic individual feedback sessions where we mutually report back to each other. They care about our experiences, and we value their impressions. These conversations provide incredible motivation and transparency at the workplace.

How do you unwind after work?

Both social time and me time are equally relaxing for me. I like to sit down and chat for a few hours after work, and I always have some current hyperfixation when I’m alone. Right now, my family and I are watching a series together, which has become part of our daily routine, and I’ve also returned to reading. I’m trying to unwind offline after gathering so much screen time from work.

What advice do you have for people starting out their carreers?

That it’s never too late to change direction, but especially at our age it’s not too late to spread your wings. I saw my internship as an opportunity to try out either my dream job or a new profession. These few months tell us a lot about the kind of work we could commit to in the long-term, and at the end of it, we can gain professional and personal experience.
