Advertising student Noviana Mona Chandra reflects on her internship at media agency Mindshare and picks out five things for anyone interested in following a career in media.

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to intern at Mindshare last year in the role of a media buyer. Looking back I had never thought that I would enjoy the media industry as much as I did.

On the internship, I learnt many things about media I didn’t know before. Such as how campaigns are planned, carried out and measured, that people don’t bury you alive when you say hi and ask questions. And that you get taken to posh restaurants every Friday.

If you are looking for a job and considering a media agency, or just want to know more, here are 5 things I learnt about the media industry.
