De begeleiding die je krijgt vind ik heel uniek. Je zit niet vast in gebaande paden, maar er wordt gekeken naar hoe jij dingen aanpakt. Zo werd in mijn 1e week gevraagd; Wat zou jij doen? Hierdoor werd ik uitgedaagd om een eigen denkwijze te vormen en nog belangrijker: hier ook achter durven staan.

Al met al is het Heineken Management Traineeship in mijn ogen een mooie kans om meteen uit de schoolbanken veel vrijheid en verantwoordelijkheid te krijgen. Je leert het bedrijf echt kennen en ontdekt het commerciële speelveld vanuit verschillende invalshoeken.
