I joined this program because I wanted to have the freedom to experience working on different projects, in different departments of the company, to find out what I really like doing and where I can add the most value. Besides this, after studying for some time in an international environment, I knew I wanted to have the same in my daily work. Then, BDRT sounded like a good choice- and so it was.
I did have the freedom inside the company and this helped me learn a lot about myself and what I like working on. Being trusted and being given the ownership of different projects, made me become more responsible and more focused, because even though many things were new for me, I had a specific goal and I had to find a way to achieve it.
Considering the international aspect that I wanted, this is indeed a very international program! I started working in an international team (with the other graduates) from day one. Apart from this, I travelled to different European BDRT sites and I have been working for two months in our business unit in Italy. I had in this way the opportunity to see new technologies being developed across the Group and to become more adaptable when working internationally.
In less than a year, I have had many enriching experiences both from a technical and personal point of view. I am now being told that I have grown a lot. This wouldn’t have been possible without the people around me who took their time to share their knowledge, coach me and support me.
