My Internship at Xport: Invaluable Experiences for my Future Career

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


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


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 Another Place on Earth

My time as being an intern at Xport eventually has come to an end, and I have to say that these 2 months feel just like 2 weeks. During my internship, I got a little insight into the Finnish business working life and their particularities in Finland. I enjoyed it pretty much. The number one reason I enjoyed it so much was the international Xport team.
