"I was allowed to participate operationally from the very beginning!"

Gioia S., Intern with a promising future

Gioia S.

When a fellow student at the Lauder Business School told her enthusiastically about his internship at LKW WALTER, Gioia didn't think twice. "I applied spontaneously and, just as spontaneously, LKW WALTER offered me a 6-month internship."

Gioia is someone who prefers to expect little and then be positively surprised if her expectations are surpassed. She remained true to this strategy at LKW WALTER too. However, when she was relatively quickly allowed to participate operationally in France-Czech Republic department, the polyglot (6 languages!) and future Bachelor of Business Administrations graduate was pleasantly surprised. "I have already supported a Division Manager, processed orders and even done some scheduling."

Overall, like most interns, Gioia first moves through different departments and then stays in one of them. In between, there are always very exciting courses. "By the way, it's also great that as an intern here you get a coach who takes care of you 1:1." Gioia wants to work in Sales when she's finished her studies. Regardless of whether she stays with us or chooses a different path: we wish her every success.
"It's also great that as an intern here you get your own coach."

Gioia's personal recommendation:

I would recommend an internship at LKW WALTER to anyone who really wants to learn and, above all, wants to experience something as well. In addition, everyone is super nice here and you feel appreciated.

Generally professional experience or industry knowledge are not necessary for entry into our operational business. Because we educate new employees as part of our "Train the Winner" trainee programme and we cover both theory and practice.
