Embracing a Fast-paced Role on Internship with Anika

Internship student Anika is currently on her 9-Month Fully Paid Internship with Quad Bike King in Newcastle. Anika is bringing a can-do attitude and buckets of positive energy to her new role and as a result she’s thriving in this fast-paced environment.

What’s a day in the life of Anika on internship look like? 

A day in the life changes depending on the day plan and how occupied our tours are. It is a fast-paced, busy and hands-on day. Through all this I still manage to hold a smile and have a positive attitude, how can you not when you work in this atmosphere?

What was a highlight from your internship?

My highlight is definitely throughout my time here gaining so much responsibility and gaining knowledge from the inside. Starting off as someone who knew nothing about the operations and quad biking, to now being a day manager and working in all areas of the workplace is crazy and certainly something I’m proud of. I now run the team through the days and ensure everything goes smoothly. Getting to work in the dunes in general is also pretty amazing!

How did the internship managers help you find your internship position?

The internship managers helped a lot by contacting Quad Bike Kings. Although I found the company myself, Lizzie was very supportive and eager to get me where I wanted to go.

Any tips or advice for students preparing for internship?

The only advice I would give is to stay calm. Stressing about finding a job will just work you up and QRC is very proactive and they do their best to get you a placement. Keep your options open and keep lots of backups! Some companies won’t take you on and that’s okay!

What is one thing you have learnt on internship?

Attention to detail is very important! I have learnt a lot by just listening and being in the moment. By taking on board every piece of advice has only made me grow. I have also learnt that not everyone you meet will be nice and welcoming, but just do not take it personally. Everyone has ups and downs, including myself. In such a customer-orientated job you must remain being kind to everyone no matter what. I have also learnt a lot about taking charge and organisation, in this role, you have to have a plan but also have the ability to think on your feet.

What’s the best thing about living in Newcastle?

The best thing about living in Newcastle is the views and weather. As someone who doesn’t love hot or cold weather, Newcastle is the perfect mix in-between. Newcastle is a good place to be and live if you don’t want to be right the city.
