Over the course of the internship Eliška is based in Prague, in the Eastern Europe marketing department. Her daily work revolves around market intelligence and research. “This mostly consist of working with data and providing analysis of the data,” she says. During the Industrial Internship Eliška is also doing a market sizing project together with a few other students in the Program.
One of the reasons for applying to the Global Industrial Internship Program was to gain experience from the industrial field. “I’ve always wanted to work in a global company where I can interact with people from all around the world,” Eliška explains.
“For me Atlas Copco was a fairly unknown company before I applied for this position. After reading through the website and thereafter starting the internship, I realized that Atlas Copco indirectly plays a huge role in my life. Almost all the gadgets I use are made by Atlas Copco machinery,” she says. Although only working at the company for a short time, she emphasizes that she’s quickly learned that work-life balance is highly valued at the company. “It’s also a very friendly working environment,” she says.
During the internship Eliška hopes to gain more practical knowledge about how things work in this global company. “I expect to learn from the best within the company and to get to know Atlas Copco even more from inside. I already know that this global project will be a valuable experience for my future,” she concludes.
