OUR PAST INTERNS’ STORIES

Sabina Damatar, Italy
During my time at Good Travel Guide, I got the opportunity to develop my digital marketing skills, going from content creation to market research, planning and executing a strategy. It was a challenging experience, and it helped me grow both professionally and personally. I especially enjoyed working with a young and passionate team, where every member did their best to succeed.
Eason Huang, The Netherlands
Absolutely loved my experience at Green Destination and Good Travel Guide. A great mixture of opportunities to practice things I know and I’m good at, as well as plenty of opportunities to learn to do new things that I am interested in. The general atmosphere is amazing as everyone there is very motivated, which set a very positive company culture to foster both personal and company growth.
Belén Loaiza Ruiz, Ecuador
Being an intern at Good Travel Guide was an extraordinary experience. Not only did I learn about my specific field (Communication) but also about tourism and green standards. It was also an opportunity to meet people from all around the world with different backgrounds. The team was always willing to help, give constructive feedback and show appreciation for my work. All in all, it was a very enriching time in my life.
Camilla Gammeri, Italy
I spent 6 months with the Good Travel Guide team as an Erasmus+ intern. I got the opportunity to combine my sustainable tourism management background with the website development skills that I learned during the internship. I feel grateful for the possibility to practice web-related skills that I will definitely enhance in the future. Last but not least, I really enjoyed my time in the Netherlands, as well as the international work environment and the sweet people that I met!

I was the first volunteer in the area of digital marketing, GTG and GD give me many important responsibilities and allow me to create, fail, try (again) recreate and succeed in the creations of inbound marketing tactics. I love it, it was a great challenging learning process.
