Feedback on the student internship
Our intern Annie spent two weeks in the spring of 2022 on a student internship in the areas of human resources management and financial management and controlling. How did Annie like her internship? You can find Annie's feedback here:
"I got a lot out of my time in Human Resources Management and Financial Management Controlling. The internship not only gave me an insight into working life, but also a better understanding of how Hereon works. All my contact persons were very friendly, there was always something to do, so I didn't get bored. Some things in the different work areas I was allowed to visit were not comprehensible to me at first, but since they always explained everything to me and answered my questions, I was able to learn it in the end. What I liked most was the working atmosphere, there was a good balance between learning by doing and inputs. I was also able to get a better picture of my strengths and weaknesses as I learned about different areas."
Ms Anja Badura, Human Resources Development in the Human Resources Management unit, will be happy to provide information on work experience.
