As part of an internship, our task was to develop a marketing concept to build awareness of Kalmar at universities and colleges in order to create the basis for a national recruiting network in Germany.
During our work we had to analyse crucial parts of the company and do an analysis of our target groups, which was thrilling because we had to focus on students at the same age and field of study as us. Furthermore, we travelled to universities, which we, based on our analysis, had previously defined as potential cooperation partners. In those meetings we represented Kalmar and worked out how we, as a company, could work together with the universities. Finally, we were able to present a concept to our management, which will be used to build a national recruiting network in Germany and develop comparable projects throughout Europe.
Although the internship was only 8 to 12 weeks, when we left the company we were packed with tons of new knowledge and knowing that our work brought the company another step forward.
Meet our interns
We collaborate with educational institutions all over the world in a variety of ways. For example, we have on-site representation at selected institutions, give lectures, provide guest speakers and offer business cases for master’s theses.
We also offer internships in several countries every year. The available internships depend on the competencies needed within the organization. In the US and Europe we take part in careers fairs to meet potential candidates face-to-face. In Hong Kong, our marketing and communications department has summer internship arrangements with a local management college.
In Poland we sign flexible agreements with trainees, who are usually technical university graduates. In Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands we cooperate with selected universities to find suitable candidates for permanent roles and summer jobs, and to arrange case studies, for example. Every year we invite groups of students to different sites to introduce them to Kalmar and show them our manufacturing facilities.
