Student, Ireland


I would strongly recommend Smurfit Kappa to any students that wish to get a great and educational experience.




Why Smurfit Kappa?

I wanted to work for a company that would provide me with well needed experience in the IT sector so that I may further my chances of obtaining a good job upon finishing my final year at IT Tallaght. What I got was far more beneficial to me than I originally thought the internship would be. I landed an internship at one of the biggest globally recognised companies in the world. I earned loads of computer based experience and learned new skills that will greatly benefit me in the future when looking for a job after I graduate. 

What did you enjoy most about your placement at Smurfit Kappa?

The one thing I enjoyed most was encountering a problem I haven’t seen before, trying to solve it and succeeding. Even if I didn’t succeed I always learned something new.


Your work placement in three words?

Challenging, Educational and Fun

What advice would you give someone considering joining Smurfit Kappa?

Smurfit Kappa Group is a great company to work for and very professional. It is an ideal company to get real world experience. You will be treated equally and fairly and not like an outsider. Applying to work here and getting the job and has been one of the best work experiences I have ever had and I would strongly recommend it to any applicants or students that wish to get a great and educational experience.
