Everyday was different at Volvo Penta and that meant that each day came with new responsibilities. You are treated like a member of the team instead of an intern. Your opinions are valued and you are given tasks that suit your career development.
I couldn’t thank my manager enough for the support I received throughout my placement. Every question was answered and if I was struggling, they were there to help. Whether that be information on the industry or specific to my role, my manager was there to guide me.
Everyone was so friendly and supportive throughout my placement. No matter their experience or level in the company, they were approachable.
I throughly enjoyed my internship at Volvo Penta, I was respected and valued as a team member. I got to learn new skills that are now crucial to my career. Despite having to work from home during my placement, the team made me feel apart of everything and I never felt out of the loop with tasks/project. Something to be admired, especially when working from home was new to everyone.
Voice your suggestions and approach each task with confidence. Everyone makes mistakes and the mistakes you make can only help you learn.
