Where did you do your internship and in which department?
I did my internship abroad at Porsche Central & Eastern Europe in Prague. There I worked in the Business Development department and was mainly responsible for Network Development, but I also got an insight into the E-Performance area.
How did you like it? Would you recommend it to other HMKW students?
I can only recommend it to everyone to do an internship here, because you learn a lot and you are actively involved in the process. The region of Eastern and Central Europe is still in the process of development within the automotive industry and you are part of the development in this region. Furthermore, the company has a flat hierarchy and you are considered to be on an equal footing. Prague is also a great location for young people. So you also have a great time besides your work.
What was the biggest challenge during your internship abroad?
My biggest challenge was settling into a new area in an internationally operating company. Due to the fact that Corona hit the Czech Republic hard, we had to work from home for a large part of the time, but that wasn't really a problem because we were able to work together a lot with the other interns in shared apartments provided by Porsche.
