Trainee Human Resources


B. Sc. Business Administration

DURATION OF TRAINEESHIP August - October 2013 and April - September 2014

Please describe here in brief what your activities were during your traineeship

During my time as a Trainee for Human Resources, I was able to support the Human Resources Department in its daily business. I assisted in administrative processes (partly in SAP) such as arrivals and departures, personnel changes, coordination of holiday cover, and the producing of contracts. Furthermore, I took on editorial work for the internal employee magazine and participated in some interesting HR projects.


How did you become aware of the traineeship at DT Swiss?

I became aware of DT Swiss thanks to a guest lecture in one of my courses during my studies. DT Swiss gave a lecture on the subject of strategic management and then afterwards offered various traineeships. I thought to myself straight away – you have to apply there!


What makes DT Swiss different from other employers?

The dynamism and internationality of this medium-sized company are reflected in everyday working life. But there is also the team spirit (strengthened by sport among other things) and friendliness, which already made a positive impression on me in the first few days!


What was your personal highlight during your traineeship?

I particularly liked the subject of employer branding. For this, I was able to provide input on the redesigning of the homepage and the advertisements. Another highlight for me was that DT Swiss made it possible for me to write my bachelor thesis on the subject of employee motivation during my traineeship.


And what does the time after your traineeship hold in store for you?

After completing my traineeship, I accepted permanent employment as Assistant Corporate Office at DT Swiss.
