Deniz Erbay, Human Resources Intern
After completing my three-year course at the Business High School in Reinach I was able to complete my internship at SBB Cargo International. The 12-month internship is an integral part of the vocational school-leaving certificate, and I completed this in the HR Department of SBB Cargo International.
My activities were very varied. In short, I supported the Head of HR and the HR Consultants with the tasks that arose in HR administration. The most interesting part for me was the recruitment of new employees. I was able to make an active contribution here. It started with the drafting of recruitment advertisements and continued right through to taking part in job interviews. I particularly valued the fact that, even as an intern, I was included in confidential work processes. The team and the working environment were very pleasant. You could always obtain help whenever you needed it. I was received in a very friendly way by all the staff at SBB Cargo International and was able to integrate into the company quickly.
All in all, the fourth year of my vocational studies was very unusual. Getting to know the world of work was really challenging at the start. At any rate, I will be able to put the experience I have gained and knowledge I have acquired to good use in the future. I very much enjoyed this internship overall, and will have fond memories of my time at SBB Cargo International.
After completing my internship, I will have to do military service. I would then like to study business administration at a university of applied sciences.
