In my case, Swisscom truly met all my mentioned expectations. What did surprise me though was, the atmosphere in the team I was working. It was one of the first to adapt an agile structure. I enjoyed shaping this initiative, which was later applied to the whole department.
Those assumptions are surely true for some companies, but it does not apply to the Swisscom internships. When I finished my time as an intern, I got the chance to stay with Swisscom and my job did not change at all. This proves that I was charged with complex tasks as an intern already. An internship at Swisscom is basically a full-time job, where you are given a lot of responsibility but also the opportunity to learn and grow.
To say it as simple as it was, I always had a smile on my face on my way to work. After my internship I applied for another position with Swisscom, but since the company knew my skills and my interests they offered me another job which matched my profile much better. This accommodated approach from the employer side was very valuable for me.
It is surely a great way to start a professional journey or to switch the career path. However, applicants should be aware they will not be told what to do. Interns who are looking for a regular eight to five job will have a hard time here. The Step In internship is for proactive people, who seize initiative and are motivated to drive their teams forward.
