Danish SaaS company Cuttles is congratulating Inesa Joksaite for graduating from a marketing internship into a full-time role. Inesa has been announced as the company’s new Business Assistant Trainee, where she’ll work in marketing and SEO, with a focus on organizing content.
Inesa is Lithuanian and moved to Denmark in 2017 when she finished high school, looking for new challenges and opportunities. She says that in Lithuania, Denmark is known as the happiest country in the world, which also formed part of the attraction.
Inesa has recently graduated with a degree in innovation and entrepreneurship, and she’s also worked as a sushi chef while serving her internship with Cuttles. She lives in Odense, commuting an hour and a half between her home and work in Copenhagen, so she’s learned to juggle her commitments!
Inesa first found Cuttles when she was looking for an internship to complete her degree. Not speaking Danish was a barrier, and she found it hard to find an internship that suited her, but she was connected with Cuttles on LinkedIn.
"A random guy sent me a link to Cuttles searching for interns, so I sent in my CV and motivational letter. He also recommended me for CEO! I hadn’t considered Copenhagen before then, but I could tell straight away that Cuttles was a good match for what I’d studied."
She loved the learning experience of her internship, getting to experience a range of different marketing fields.
"I really enjoyed graphics and making animations, as well as research analysis and marketing. During those nine months of the internship, I’ve found out what I'm good at and where I can most help Cuttles"
What Inesa is most interested in is the changing pace of the digital world. She wrote her thesis in digital marketing and social media, and about how people working in those fields need to have broad skill sets in order to cope.
"Digital marketing is changing very fast and you can never stop learning. Algorithms in social media are changing constantly in order to improve users’ experience. I’m passionate about continuing to learn so I can further connect users and companies in the most efficient way."
“I like that it's changing. Some would see that as a disadvantage, but I like that you can always improve and that there’s always something new to learn.”
Inesa is an avid traveler, particularly backpacking. She is very thrifty when she travels, and once did a week-long trip to Jordan for just €200. She also plays piano and enjoys photography and cooking.
