Axel Bitterli, Accounting/Controlling/IT Intern
The 12-month internship at SBB Cargo International was the practical part of my training course at Business High School in Basel.
Working in the Accounting department, I gained a good insight into how real-world bookkeeping within a company differs from the theory one learns at school. During my internship, I also had an opportunity to observe and analyse the international goods transportation market. My tasks included producing weekly reports that served as a source of information for the staff of SBB Cargo International. Working on these reports impressed on me how various events can have an impact on goods transportation. The working environment was very pleasant, and everyone in the team was very open, friendly, and helpful at all times.
I will certainly be able to put the experience I have gained to good use in the future.
