time is passing by soooo fast and now it is time to update my blog again 😉
The last weeks have been really exciting for me. I started my internship at Gebr. Heinemann, got to know a lot of people and also had time to experience Hamburg a little bit more.
But let me start with my internship in the business development department. At Gebr. Heinemann, I have the privilege to primarily work on a very interesting and strategic-valuable project for the upcoming months. Accordingly, my daily work mainly focuses on research-based tasks meaning that I have to analyze various markets and sectors, and based on my findings derive different strategic approaches for the company. If I could, I would tell you more, but as you can imagine secrecy in business development is important as “loose lips sink ships” 😉
Concerning the company itself, the working environment at Gebr. Heinemann is great. My colleagues are really friendly, open and accommodating reflecting one of the company´s key values. Hence, I can talk to them regarding any questions I have and they are more than happy to assist me. By the way, we are a pretty international team consisting of employees from Latin America, Middle East and Europe. Indeed, Gebr. Heinemann is a quite multicultural firm, thus Non-German speaking colleagues are not uncommon when walking through the hallways or picking up the phone. Another really nice factor about working at Gebr. Heinemann are the perks available to us employees as for instance the free lunches at the cafeteria, the multitude of workshops trainings or the offered field trips.
Indeed, two weeks ago I visited Gebr. Heinemann´s logistics centre in Allermöhe (Hamburg) to get insights into the company´s warehousing. It was a really exciting experience to see how the company is handling the distribution to its worldwide customers taking into consideration their individual requirements.
However, I did not only experience a lot of exciting things during my work, but also in my free time. Thus, I visited Hamburg´s harbor festival which claims to be the world´s greatest port festival; I did a harbor sightseeing tour and visited Disney’s musical The Lion King, an awesome musical!! So, as you can see Hamburg offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy your leisure time! Still, I have sooo much on my to-do-list before leaving Hamburg!!
I hope I could give you a brief insight into my first weeks in Hamburg and working at Gebr. Heinemann.
See you soon 🙂
