At which company and in which department did you do your internship?
I completed my internship at TROX Austria in Vienna. The company is active in the B2B sector and develops, produces and sells devices and systems for the ventilation and air conditioning of rooms. I worked there in marketing together with two other colleagues. The office in Vienna also coordinates the marketing campaigns of all Eastern European countries, so there was a lot of international collaboration going on.
How did you like it? Would you recommend it to other HMKW students?
I really enjoyed my internship! I already did an internship abroad during my bachelor's degree, so I knew that it was a great opportunity for my own development. You learn a lot about yourself and what kind of challenges you are able to tackle. Moving to another country and working and living there is not always easy.
What was the biggest challenge during your internship abroad?
It's only when you're away from home for an extended period of time and can't see your family and friends that you realize how much you should actually appreciate something like that. You miss any birthdays, graduations or other important moments, you have to be aware of that.
