At the end of my master's degree in Robotics at EPFL, I looked for an innovative company, a leader in its field. During this search, I received an invitation to the Swisscom Student Days. I attended the presentations and was able to ask all my questions to the trainees and presenters. I discovered the new IT trainee program that I am part of today. It consists of three 4-months projects in the teams of our choice. It's the perfect step between the university and the professional world. I meet many people and build strong links with trainees and colleagues met during the projects.

Not being sure whether I want to evolve towards technical or business, I could explore both possibilities by choosing projects in both fields.

Since I joined Swisscom, I worked for 4 months in a Data, Analytics and AI team on tools to improve the customer service callbot. In January, I moved on to a project in Human Resources where I'm doing data analysis of internal training and apprenticeship.

Halfway through the program, I have gained knowledge and experience through collaboration with my colleagues and the fascinating topics I am working on. At the end of this year, I will be much more confident when choosing my next assignment in a permanent position at Swisscom!

Either following your degree or master’s course or as part of your studies, we offer the perfect start to your IT career. Over a period of 12 to 18 months, you will work in IT projects of varying lengths at an employment level of 60 to 100% and be introduced to different business areas throughout the Group. You will also have the opportunity to attend various workshops on agility, human-centered design or intrapreneurship. This will allow you to get to know Swisscom in all its diversity.
