Internship as a ticket to the future
“As a summer intern, I learned what it’s like to work in a large, global company. I acquired a good understanding of how different departments and professional areas work together to achieve their goals. I’m from the area myself, but didn’t actually realise how big Ekornes is before I started working there. The company has a good working environment, with dedicated employees at home and abroad who are working systematically to develop it even further. Today, I work in the Marketing Department, and love it here. An internship gave me opportunities I didn’t know I had,” says Hanna Fauske Flack.
Opportunity to put theory into practice
"The Summer Internship at Ekornes has been a great experience. From day one, my tasks has been highly relevant for the company and I feel that the management are interested to hear our thoughts and ideas. My excel skills has significantly improved during the summer, and I have used theory from school in actual cases. Also, Sunnmøre has an amazing nature, and I think it is difficult to find an internship in Norway with such beautiful surroundings that is equally as relevant for an economic student as Ekornes Summer Internship," says Erlend W. Johansen, Finance intern.
