Magdalena’s advice for applicants who are interested in an internship

"What I particularly liked about my internship at HOFER was the opportunity to accompany my own projects to get authentic insights into daily business reality. As an intern at HOFER, you are part of the team from day 1 instead of standing on the sidelines. I am really happy that I got offered a permanent job at HOFER right afterwards."
