Being an intern at Ekkiden: Ana Paola, aka the enthusiastic introvert!
'When I moved from Mexico to Madrid, I never imagined that I would end doing my internship at a great company such as Ekkiden.
Six months, half a year… that seems like a lot of time, but it actually goes by really fast! To think that it has already been six months since I started my internship at Ekkiden in the Madrid office, and I still have not met all the cast members of La Casa de Papel (Money Heist)!
To get to know me, I am a French Business School student doing a gap year and I will soon go back to class — yay! As my second, and best, internship (do not tell the others) is coming to an end, I was given the opportunity to share my adventure at Ekkiden, how I stumbled upon this opportunity (you will see how foretelling that is), and what I experienced in general.
An internship is for learning, gaining confidence, and getting to know the world and oneself, therefore, I tried something new, something I had never expected myself to even try, and got to experience a lot of firsts during my first internal recruitment experience.
Each of our interns is invaluable to us, and Laure was a real pleasure to have at Ekkiden. She highlights everything that she learned from her experience, but we will add everything she did for the company and how her attitude during the whole period was an example of an open person, willing to learn, work and be part of a team, even if her stay had an end date.
If Laure’s testimony left you wanting to experience a similar experience, maybe one of our internships is for you! Check our jobs page to find out.
