What does your typical working day look like?

Together with my direct colleague, I look after the vacancies for interns and working students completely independently. In the morning, we create the applications that have been newly received and then send out confirmations of receipt. Then we schedule telephone interviews. We conduct these independently and then take care of the acceptances or rejections.

Why did you choose this internship?

The candidate experience was great for me. I felt very comfortable and picked up throughout the entire application process. The first telephone interview was very pleasant and left a positive impression. The scope of duties and the company values appealed to me and it is simply very important to me that I also feel comfortable in the team in addition to the scope of duties. I immediately sensed that this was a good fit.
