WORKING STUDENT STORY
Meet Alicia, Working Student Talent Acquisition: “I’m responsible for all Intern & Working Student positions for the HQ. I’m also supporting our Talent Acquisition Team with all operational recruiting tasks, from job ad creation to candidate tracking, offer calling, job postings and communication with Hiring Managers. Moreover I’m coordinating the interviews to deliver an excellent candidate experience for all positions. I get really inspired by the passion every team member brings to their job and I love our flat hierarchies, the international environment and the opportunity to grow and take over a lot of responsibility even as an Intern and Working Student.”
Meet Sina, People & Business Manager: “I started my journey at Westwing as an Intern in our Talent Acquisition Team. After my internship I had the opportunity to join Westwing as a Junior Talent Acquisition Manager and afterwards transitioned into the role of People and Business Manager. Now, I am the first point of contact and sparring partner for all leaders of my departments and work on the optimization of our people processes and tools. Besides that, I kept my recruiting tasks for all open positions in the Westwing Delivery Service Team. What I like most about Westwing is the ‘everything is possible’ mentality. I am grateful for the teamwork, appreciation, and motivation which are important parts of our working culture.”
As an Intern or Working Student most of the learning and development happens ‘on-the-job’. In Addition, we support your growth with a number of measures like our feedback tool Officevibe, regular Company All-Hands, and Insight Sessions to learn about different business-related topics.
