An interview with InternsGoPro

Are you happy to be awarded the European Label for Best Internships?

We are more than happy. Being awarded a well known and recognized label in Europe is surely an achievement for us, showing that we are committed to respect all the required criteria to provide young people with quality internships.

What does this certification mean to you?

It represents the fact that we are an engaged company who wants to play in the labour market in a fair way, showcasing that we are committed to offer internships that fulfill all the due requirements thus facilitating the transition of students from education to labor market.

Why are internships important for you as employer?

Internships are an important first step to better know the candidate before hiring him/her. It can help  the company to understand if the student is aligned to our behavioral internal model and if the desirable following engagement can be profitable for both.

What are the actions/processes you have in place to ensure the quality of your internship programme ?

First of all we ensure that job supply and demand meet, making sure that the student gets the most out of the experience and that all the requirements are guaranteed (good tutor, interesting topics, continuous learning, fair wage, a suitable working environment, knowledge sharing, etc). To ensure this, the process is monitored end-to-end by the HR department.
