How the International Internship Challenge was for me

What were the three winners’ experiences from last year? And what tips do they have? Ricarda Schäfer (21) from Germany, who is currently on assignment as an intern in Materials Management in the Spanish plant in Argentona, says: “What I really liked about the IIC was the chance to get to know Beiersdorf and many of the people who work there during interesting activities, conversations and tasks. It was also really cool to meet 30 young people pursuing similar interests and goals.”

Anvar Babaev (22) from Russia, winner in Marketing & Sales, agreed. He’ll begin his internship in international Marketing in Hamburg at the end of May, “I am still really amazed about how open all the employees were and ready to share their experiences and valuable advice with us. Mert Ünal (23) from Turkey, the winner in Finance & Controlling, who currently is looking behind the curtain of R&D Controlling, says, “Try to enjoy the time during the competition and meet as many people as you can. Having a positive attitude will help you make a good impression.”
