What is your personal experience with AIESEC?
I joined AIESEC when I studied at the Technical University of Zürich, Switzerland. I was part of organizing job fairs and conferences on economics and ecology and I participated in several conferences organized by AIESEC. I enjoyed the spirit of AIESEC and the friendships.
Do you have any personal experience with AIESEC trainees?
Absolutely. We have hired multiple AIESEC trainees in Manufacturing & Logistics, with whom we had very positive experiences. Almost all of them transferred to permanent jobs after their internship.
My experience with AIESEC trainees is that all are extremely committed, smart, curious in a positive way, and culturally a very open group which supports Husqvarna Group in transitioning from local operations into a global group.
Where do you see the role of AIESEC Program in Husqvarna Group?
I see a big role of AIESEC in building bridges across regional hubs. And through AIESEC, we get highly qualified young people and develop them for future permanent roles.
Where do you see the future of AIESEC in Husqvarna Group?
AIESEC can add value within all functions in Husqvarna Group. Trainees are great for project assignments as they fill the need of project managers and they help strengthening the global mindset.
