"Join and complete your studies all at once - it's possible!"

Lea S., Division Manager and "Christmas angel"

Lea S.

Shortly before completing her Masters in Marketing in Hungary, Lea was intent on doing one last internship abroad. There are good reasons why she checked in at LKW WALTER in Wiener Neudorf and why she has remained with us to this day.

Lea had a plan - to spend four months abroad as an intern for an internationally active company, where she would be able to hone her already excellent language skills. For that purpose, the location of LKW Walter at Wiener Neudorf was ideal. But staying on after the initial four months came as a bit of a surprise.

“During the internship I was offered the position of Transport Manager while finishing my Masters at the same time. I couldn't say no to that.”

Today Lea is Division Manager and heads her own department. "My team is very special. We work with many countries. For example, every year we transport more than 300,000 Christmas trees from Denmark to Austria, Czechia, Slovakia and Hungary. That's about 400 full truck loads! That's why they call us the LKW WALTER Christmas angels."

"My team is very special."

Lea's personal tip:

If you are after an internship that offers real professional perspectives, you should definitely give the WALTER GROUP a try. What's also amazing is that you can complete your studies while you work.

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.
