"Jorge had recently graduated with his bachelor's degree, who despite his inexperience arrived with the best attitude to learn and to face the challenges that were given to him. He made such a great impact during his internship that we decided to offer him a full time position upon completion of his internship.
What can you tell us about your Internship experience?
Working at Smurfit Kappa North America (SKNA) has been a unique experience without a doubt. When I first started as an IT Intern I thought I was going to be doing administrative work. I quickly realized at SKNA, whether as an Intern, Trainee, or seasoned Professional everybody plays a key role. When I talked to many of my college friends who were also doing internships and comparing the assignments I was being given I noticed I enjoyed much greater responsibilities. Certainly no coffee making or becoming an expert in photocopying during my internship.
Tell us a bit more about your work/projects?
Within my first week I was given a project with a high profile and potential for international implementation. I did not have much expertise on the project topic. Many times it crossed my mind to throw the towel but the SKNA team supported and helped me raise my game. We successfully deployed the new service with an overwhelming positive feedback. I am very proud of the project results and to be part of the Smurfit Kappa family where I feel I have a new challenge every day.
