I’m studying business management at an university of applied sciences. During my six-month work experience placement, I was an intern in the central HR management department at Geis.
I had a varied range of responsibilities and activities. Most of all, I worked on applicant management. My other main tasks included helping with organisational matters and the administration associated with professional development and training.
I was involved in day-to-day business as well as several projects. On top of that, I helped to attract candidates.
I especially liked the fact that people gave me a great deal of responsibility as an intern at Geis.
Challenges and opportunities
When you start the industrial placement, you should bring strong organisational skills and the ability to communicate well.
I thought it was great that I could take part in networking events and school job fairs with Geis. This allowed me to gain confidence as a public speaker and to build on my presentation skills.
I gained a fascinating insight into a growing medium-sized company – and I’m very pleased to be continuing my work at Geis as a student trainee.
Team and work environment
People made me feel really welcome from day one. Having such friendly and helpful colleagues made it much easier for me to get started. In a nutshell, there is:
- a pleasant working environment
- varied work
- innovative topics
- room for your own ideas
