I study marketing and few weeks ago i contacted a guest lecturer of mine and i asked if he had any internship available, he didn't say yes or no he just said thanks for reaching out lets meet up and talk.. not knowing what that ment (what do you think he means)?
i said yes i would love to meet up and talk, so tomorrow i am heading to his office to talk.
I am 23 years and im on my last bachelor year in marketing and the only experiance i have is by working with customers, so customer service I've worked in a store for about 5 years and i dont have much digital experiance.
So what i am going to say is that i dont have much experiance when it comes to digital marketing or any other type of marketing, and the only experiance i have is by working with customers and i would love to get a internship to be able to expand my expertees and to be able to learn more, and work in a work enviroment that is more related to my bachelors degree. I really want to work with marked communications and CRM and digital marketing.
Is this a good awnser if he askes me why i want to work there?

Be honest with him about your work experience. It's perfectly okay to say, you are clueless about your next career move. I guarantee, your Guest Lecturer knows graduates are often unclear about their employment or job roles.
Though you have expressed interest in marketing communications, digital marketing and CRM, that doesn't mean you are still clear about what you really want to do.
Forget about those buzzwords (e. g. digital marketing, CRM, etc.). Just quietly paused for few minutes. [Don't think about your marketing certificate or what you studied.] Ask yourself what is it I like doing? Start each sentence with a verb. For example:
• Design minimalist presentations
• Doing online research about…
• Talking to a large audience or on a 1-2-1 basis
• Advising people on matters that…
• Testing x new product or service
Write as many verb-starting sentences as possible.
For each verb-starting sentence, write down why you like performing it and why accomplishing it makes you feel.
You will be amazed how everything's would fall into place. And you will comfortably articulate what you want to do. Your lecturer would be amazed. Do not use buzzwords when doing the exercise, and when discussing with your lecturer.
You do not necessarily have to work in marketing. Be mindful of that. It is not the strongest species that survive but the ones that are flexible and quick to embrace change do.
I have a double degree in Journalism and Political Sciences. My work for the last 10 years has no link with my bachelor studies though they have influenced my job performance.

Dont mention that u lack experience. Focus on highlighting your strengths. Think of when someone is trying to sell you something. They ONLY tell u good things about the product. Thats the point.
Do your research. Make sure you're prepared for the interview. Arrive early. You'll do great hun. I believe in you😉0
