"I’ve been at Philips for 2 years now. During my masters in Marketing Management, I discovered that I really wanted work in marketing, preferably starting with a traineeship. Some traineeships can be rather fixed but I wanted to find one that would let me explore my interests. I believe that, if you can find a way to follow your passion, it will all come together. You’ll get so much energy from doing what you love!
A friend recommended Philips and I was surprised at the fit. They had advanced products and a focus on innovation that really matters."
“It’s hard to say it without sounding cheesy but the people are really nice. On the trainee program, I got 15 new friends and we’ve done great things like the Race of the Classics together. There’s a real history of investment in people and you can actually see it and feel it.”
Opportunities open up very naturally. You’re encouraged to be independent and jump on the train.
"Philips is very much a ‘what about? Can I?’ type of place. Early on I was given the chance to organize PIM. It’s our biggest internal market event. Think 300 people from all over the world for 3 days. It was terrifying but it was also fantastic to be given the chance. Since then I’ve organized 3 PIMs and helped at IFA 2017.”
