    During my internship at twentytwentyone, I was responsible of updating the company’s online shop and learned how to use Drupal to manage the content, editing item photos, calculating prices. My daily tasks consisted of writing short descriptions for each product, finding the best photo and lifestyle shot for a certain product. I have also got acquainted with the array of product features and attributes, got a better understanding of stock and purchase orders and how to organise a social media calendar. This internship thought me to be better organised, better time keeping and how to use the software necessary for maintaining and updating a online store.
