Matthias Huber, Intern at the Controlling department
After I received my "Berufsmatura" school-leaving certificate and attended a business-oriented high school for three years, I decided to complete my education by doing an internship at the Controlling department of SBB Cargo International AG.
Over a 14-month period, I obtained a very good and detailed impression of the company and of the work in the various departments. These close insights into the company's day-to-day workings enabled me to rapidly familiarise myself with the internal processes and organisation. My main responsibilities involved assisting with planning work, compiling the weekly and monthly reporting, and performing various organisational and archiving tasks.
I felt at ease in the team, and in the company as a whole, right from the beginning. My wish to have a challenging internship came true. I greatly enjoyed the varied and interesting work. I was proud to be given responsibility for important tasks and be accepted as a fully-fledged member of the team.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my colleagues at SBB Cargo International AG, and especially my supervisor Laurence Spindler-Freudenreich, for this enjoyable and instructive time.
I can well imagine working in controlling again in future. First of all, however, I'll be going on a trip through Canada.
