Whether you have ambitions to quickly climb the ladder to a management position or simply want to strengthen your knowledge and experience in a particular sector, a traineeship is a real boost for your further career. This is especially true for Young Graduates: traineeships are a unique opportunity to learn concrete skills and discover in which sector they excel most!
Traineeships are work and training programmes that give talented starters a chance to:
- Discover what a company has to offer
- Develop oneself by participating in various projects
- Grow in the department where they feel most at home
In addition to a fully-fledged job, you also get to follow an education program where you get prepped for a managerial position. Sounds ideal, right? Before you start to applying for traineeships right away, you have to be sure of the company. Every organisation gives their own unique spin to traineeships! To make things a little easier, we have drawn up a list of the four best traineeships that start in September 2018:
