What I gained from an internship abroad - Benjamin's experience in Brno
My name is Benjamin Viergutz and I’m 20 years old. I’m currently doing a dual study program with Deutsche Telekom AG. In this program, I’m studying business administration in Frankfurt and working as an intern for companies in the Deutsche Telekom Group. I just completed a three-month assignment abroad in Deutsche Telekom Services Europe in Brno and would like to share with you a few insights.
Why did you decide to come to Brno?
I was accepted by the internship program of the “Telekom Ausbildung”, which offers some possibilities in other countries to selected dual students. They offered me to go to Brno and work on several tasks in the “Back-office” area. I agreed after reading the job description which sounded very interesting to me. And as I can say now, it was a really good decision.
What is your impression of Brno?
When I must describe it in one word, I would say “incredible”. The people here are so friendly, and the atmosphere is great. If you will walk through the streets in spring or summer, you will see a lot of people drinking a beer and enjoying their life. Mostly there are some food events in the city center, so you can have a nice time with your friends there.
What were your tasks at DTSE CZ?
During my Internship, I have worked in the Back Office team and I was improving the work routine of all employees. One part of it was to start the project management office and helping the employee with realizing their ideas. During this time, I learned a lot about the needs of a project and we implemented a good system which supports all the employees who would like to realize their idea. I could experience this myself, I had also some Ideas which I presented to the management and will be realized during the next months.
What did you enjoy the most about DTSE CZ?
Colleagues are like a family. They support you by warmly welcoming you into the team and you can have so much fun with them. Regarding the daily routine, I was also very impressed by how the management is supporting the ideas of colleagues and they have always time for you. So, whenever you have an Idea to improve something, they will support you (also with the budget). And the office is really cool and modern. I believe this supports the family feeling. With the open work-space and the lounges for all employees, you can have a lot of exchanges and you feel very comfortable.
In the end, I can only say that If you would like to work in a modern and innovative company with nice colleagues, an incredible office, you should check out the open positions and apply at DTSE CZ. You will definitely not regret it..
