I immediately felt at home because everyone wanted to help me

In the second year of the Port Logistics Manager course at the STC, I started my internship at DSV Air & Sea Dordrecht in the import department. I immediately felt at home and if I had any questions I could ask anyone, because everyone wanted to help me.

At the end of my internship, they were very satisfied with me and they offered me a zero hours contract and I accepted it. In the third year of my training, I was able to work at DSV next to school to further broaden my professional knowledge. At the end of the third year, DSV offered me to do the last year of my education with their internship with the prospect of working there after my internship.

In my last period I had a new challenge in the import department that I could focus on and learn more about.

This shows that DSV is a good internship company, because they are always looking for a challenge for you to teach you more professional knowledge.

Unfortunately, the Coronavirus broke out during this period and DSV had to take measures. DSV decided that everyone had to work from home. Even though I was an intern, they had confidence in me and let me work from home completely independently. I graduated in July 2020 and started working at DSV as a Freight Forwarder from August 2020. I hope to enjoy working here for many years to come.
