Leonardo’s internship experience in SAMP SpA


My past student’s years in June were characterized by the end of school and the beginning of summer holidays. Instead, this year thanks to the programme alternanza scuola-lavoro (which is an equivalent to the UK “Young Apprenticeship Programme”) supported by my school, the “I.I.S. J.M. KEYNES”, I had the great opportunity to join SAMP SpA for 4 weeks as an intern.

I was very excited to start my internship period in this metal-mechanic company since it was a real-life working experience and my first approach to a job related to my studies. Indeed, my high school section focuses on marketing, communication and commercial studies and here in SAMP I carry out my internship in the Marketing & Communication Department.

Since the very first day, my new colleagues have warmly welcomed me to their group and allowed me to participate actively to many different work activities linked to both traditional and digital marketing tasks . Indeed, with their support, I have learned to do social media analysis and to read social network analytics. I’ve also translated some English technical articles to be posted on the company websites learning a lot of specific mechanical terms. Furthermore, I was happy to take part in several meetings for the trade fairs planning and in the realisation of a cutting tools professional shooting to be used for catalogues, advertising and graphics update.

Thanks to my office colleagues, with whom I have developed a close and friendly relationship, I have realized the importance of the teamwork and the need to carry out a job with commitment and precision.

The internship at SAMP SpA has been an intensely educational experience for me and I would sincerly recommend it to all my classmates and friends. Indeed, thanks to this internship you have the unique chance to put in practice everything you have learned at school from a theoretical point of view.

For all these reasons, I would be very glad to work within the SAMP Group in the future!
