My Internship at Xport: Teamwork, Networking & Internationals Sales

Jose (centre) hanging-out with some of the Xport team

I remember my first day of work at Xport, three months ago. I was very excited for what that experience was going to provide me and for having the opportunity to contribute to the company. In addition, I was warmly welcomed by all the members of both, Xport and BSTR, which indicated the great atmosphere around the office.

During the time I was working at Xport I was finishing my master studies and figuring out what to do next in my career. That is why it has been a busy, dynamic but rewarding period that helped me to develop myself even further.

My Internship at Xport: Invaluable Experiences for my Future Career

Rosa looks to her future… 1st task ‘complete my thesis’!

Nearly five months ago I wrote my very first post in this blog. Time has gone by quickly and it has felt like days rather than months. I am excited to write my thesis and to complete my studies, but sad that my internship here has now come to its end. My time at Xport has given me a lot and I enjoyed having varied tasks every day which made work very interesting.

My Internship at Xport: Fun & Learning Outside of my Comfort Zone

Six weeks passed quickly. A fun, informative experience is sadly coming to an end. As a guy, who had no experience of sales and marketing at all, I was worried that I would not match the requirements of the role, during this internship.

When I started to work on my first project, I had no idea where to start and where to finish it. After completing the task I had a better understanding of what Xport actually does. In addition with my increasing knowledge, the complexity of the tasks also increased. After finishing a few tasks, I realised I didn’t need to be afraid of not matching the requirements. Even though there were sometimes little language problems, because I’m not a native English speaker, the team was patient to ensure I understood what was required of me.

Meet Xport’s Spring Intern: Rosa, Finland

rosa-intro-blog

My name is Rosa and I am studying International Business at Seamk. I am from Central Finland and moved to Seinäjoki for my studies. I am finishing my studies in the end of this year and all I have left to do is my internship and my thesis.

I will be spending the next five months here at Xport and I’m excited to work in such an international company. I have been in exchange twice, once in Mexico and once in Spain and I love to travel, and I believe that continuing to spend time in an international environment will be not only very helpful, but also fun. This is my first time working in my own field and I am happy to have this opportunity to learn and see what it is like to work here.

Meet Xport’s Winter Intern: Robin, Germany

robin-intro

Hi, my name is Robin and I’m from a small village near Hannover, Germany. I’m currently in an apprenticeship at a Local Government as an administration employee and will finish it in June 2017. I take part in the “Erasmus”-project of the European Union, which offers students to go to a different country of the EU and gain experience in working abroad.

I will be working at Xport for six weeks in January and February. I came to Finland, because I want to improve my English and office skills. In addition, I like Finland’s landscape. In my free time, I love to meet my friends, listen to music and reading novels.

My Internship at Xport: An Experience that Exceeded Expectations

diwakar-goodbye

It is said that something is special to you when it’s about to an end – although, I knew that eventually my time at Xport would end. Despite that, I am so grateful for the fabulous experience in a place I could never have imagined doing my internship.

I remember everything I did at Xport during my Internship and I feel so wonderful about everything I did over the course of 12 weeks, all of which went so well with the good guidance of the Xport team.
