We are excited to welcome a new sales intern to the ever-growing international Zocket team. Jandrik joined us two weeks ago on a summer internship program, and we are eager to get to know him better.
We sat down with Jandrik over a cup of coffee earlier and asked him to share his story and hopes for the internship. Here is what he shared with us.
I just moved from Germany where I have been studying International Business Management. Earlier this year I decided to look for a summer internship abroad.
I consider myself fairly ambitious and studying International Business has given me a real taste and flavor for startups and entrepreneurs. I hope one day to become an international entrepreneur myself.
One of the main reasons I was attracted to Zocket was the chance to gain experience in a startup with an international focus.
WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO GAIN FROM THIS INTERNSHIP?
More experience to grow my professional skills and learn new things before I move back to Germany and finish my studies next year.
I am also looking forward to improving my negotiation powers and becoming, even more, business proficient.
HOW WAS YOUR FIRST WEEK IN THE OFFICE?
I just couldn’t wait to jump in, I spent the first few days excitedly exploring HubSpot for sales purposes, doing tutorials, exploring features of the platform and familiarizing with Zocket’s products.
The office has a great friendly vibe, and it’s been great to talk and work with an international team. I have the feeling I will learn a lot here, and that I will always have someone to turn to when I need guidance.
TELL US ABOUT A FUTURE GOAL
Having already lived in 4 countries so far, one of my future dreams is to travel to South Africa, exploring the country, culture, and wildlife. Perhaps living abroad is what gave me the international business buzz?!
WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
I play lots of sports, soccer, tennis, and volleyball. I am very passionate about travels and of course, I enjoy socializing and hanging out with my friends.
My friend Alexander is currently a sales intern at Seuss, so we both moved to Amsterdam together for the summer internships. It’s great to have a friend in the same boat and it eases the transition.
We hope you enjoyed readinng Jandrik’s story, and please join us in giving him a warm welcome to both the Netherlands and the Zocket team this Summer.
We are excited for Jandrik to join our team and see him shine and thrive over the next months.
