1. Provide a brief overview(s) of
Your Workplace Organisation(s) and
I am completing my internship at Rideshare tax experts. It’s a Accounting firm based out of Auckland. We help our clients drivers/sole traders across New Zealand. We help all sort of busniness/ partnerships/sloe traders with their accounting and taxation. However, Our primary focus is on sole traders/ Rideshare drivers. We hold up the events 2 days a week, where we invite rideshare drivers to come and talk to us if they need any help. For example if any new drivers needs to submit his/her documents to become a driver we will help with that and help him to start his driving journery. While onboarding or helping anything else we explain them our services like taxation, Accounting etc.
My Role will be handeling all the whole marketing of this small firm and report driectly to owner/driector. As this is the small firm and their marketing budget is not too much. Also, the per client ticket size is also low. So we have a tie up with a marketing agency in India, who provide us some help whereever needed. My Role is to increase the awareness of our services as much as possible. In nutshell, our goal is to make every single driver of New Zealand aware about our services. Because all the drivers needs our taxation services and we are one the lowest price in the market. So more the driver base is aware the more chances of conversion. I will handel all the marketing activtes and seek help from India marketing agency wherever needed. I’m also helping with basic operatons work and steamlining the processes.
2. Linking knowledge from your major to your Co-op placement activities:
Using your job description(s), briefly discuss each key activity that relates to your major(s) (attach as Appendix 1), and
Identify and discuss how a range of specific theories, concepts, models, frameworks and/or technical competencies from your major(s) might apply to each activity (Note: You must draw on authoritative sources using in-text citations).
3. Discuss the value that your role AND your personal attributes will add to your Organisation.
I am personally very self motivated person and I’ve a few years of Industry experience but not in marketing specalisation. However, I have a very good client dealing experience. As per our understanding the 80% of the drivers base is Indian community. So being me as an Indian is an advantage at I can talk in 4 local languages and make clients feel more comfortable. Also, I become easier for them to trust us, especially when I see old people struggling with english and are not digitally and technically advance.. All the experiences I have from my work history will help me to grow this startup. Currently the business doesn’t have any social media account, google my business, and a very minimal online presence. Within next a few months I will ensure that business is updated with online presence.
B. Your Professional Skills: communicate effectively in professional settings, working collaboratively and being adept at working in changing local and global contexts and environments.

Being able to work collaboratively
Being adept at working in changing local and global contexts and environments
These goals will develop:
Either a personal strength and/or address a weakness
Generic professional skills or capabilities that could be transferred to other roles and workplaces in the future
