Interview

What were your tasks during your internship in the Sales & Performance Management team?

The biggest part was sales-related analysis: on the one hand I got spontaneous requests from our stores if they wanted to know how their sales figures developed over time or if there is any new competitors on the market, for example. On the other hand I regularly prepared data lists or powerpoints for our stores showing the sales figures of our own brands, the inventory, etc.

What was your highlight during your internship?

The great relationship I could build with the store manager and the employees from the stores. It is a great feeling when you call a store and they greet you with a warm-hearted hello and give you the feeling that you are welcome.

What was your biggest success?

My biggest success in regards to this internship was that I was not “just” the intern, but was seen as a very valuable team member – just like everyone else. It was good to be solely responsible for tasks and to be seen as someone who actively contributes to the success of the team.

What was most fun about your internship?

I enjoyed in general to go to work every day. It’s a natural consequence of feeling that your team mates trust you and if you need something you can always ask questions. At this point I want to give a big THANK YOU to my team as they really were the greatest!
