Cristina gets online and helps shape the future of Italian handmade jewellery
After graduating with a degree in Literature, Information Communication and Publishing, Cristina Nicosia began searching for her calling in life. With a long-held passion for web and digital marketing, she tried her hand at various temporary roles, including web editor, translator and copywriter. But it was when she discovered Crescere In Digitale that she saw the real opportunity to build a career in digital marketing. As well as gaining the practical digital marketing skills she needed for the world of work, Cristina also got the chance to put these skills to use through a six-month intern position at a new Italian start-up. Her chosen company was Lux Made In, an online marketplace showcasing handmade Italian jewellery from young, up-and-coming artisans to a worldwide audience.
“It was the perfect environment to grow into a real digital role: a young and dynamic company where I could put into action everything I learnt from Crescere in Digitale.” During her internship, Cristina managed Lux Made In’s online presence, overseeing key advertising campaigns and managing the company’s social media accounts. Business owner Giorgio was so impressed with her talent that he offered her a contract at Lux Made In when her internship ended. Cristina is now employed as the company’s web marketing manager. “My Crescere in Digitale internship was such a useful and interesting experience,” says Cristina. “It gave me the opportunity to learn practical skills and helped me secure my dream job in digital communication.”
