" Oftentimes, graduate trainees do not have the opportunity to work closely with Senior Management and interact with Executives. However, from day one I noticed that Smurfit Kappa North America was different.
What is this Program about?
Most programs do not offer enough variety or rotations but here I have already had the unique opportunity to work on the communications campaign for the Innovation Event for The Americas. This is a very high profile event and as a trainee I was empowered by my mentor to contribute towards such an event.
What advice would you give potential graduates?
If you want to work in a company that strives for success with a passion for innovative thinking, then this is the right place for you. I have encountered one similar pattern during my rotations. It is the quality of people that Smurfit Kappa North America has, which is a hard feature to imitate. Ultimately, the graduates will learn as much as allowed by the individuals they are interacting with.
