The current company organization as of 12 April 2018 is depicted in the following diagram. Services offer by Taskeater:
The two main channels of business communication internally and with clients are email and Skype.
I am currently working as an Analyst of Taskeater. I am working in the lead generation department. Now question comes what is lead generation? Lead generation is basically finding personal and non-personal information like Emails, phone number, postcode address etc. for the business purpose. In my department my team leader Mr. Asad Zaman trained me perfectly and made me understood about the job I have to do for my company. Basically Taskeater provides on the job training to its employees so that employees can understand their responsibility faster, I was first trained to collect Email IDs of different professionals. After that time by time I have learned how to find postcode address phone numbers and LinkedIn professional profile, online stores, outlets etc.
After successfully completed my training period for a week, I was assigned to a client named Quiqup a last mile delivery service company situated in United Kingdom. From that time to till now I was working for Quiqup. Till now, I have performed different types of lead services (services associated with lead generation) for them. First month I have worked to find leads for their targeted companies that they are going to affiliate for their delivery business where most of their targeted companies are London based restaurant and electronics companies. They wanted to provide logistics/ delivery support for them thus all they needed was finding their necessary information to contact with them. I have helped them in this manner. In this 3 months I have been giving client Quiqup, my all the cooperation on behalf of Taskeater which is helping them to conduct their own business.
Lastly, the main thing I have learnt is the responsibility. If I do something wrong I have learnt to take the responsibility. I try to learn from my mistakes rather than blaming others. I think this internship experience helps me to make myself more mature and responsible personally and professionally.
