“After seeing Bertelsmann’s on-campus presentation at HHL and learning how interested they are in international profiles, I approached the company representative at the get-together afterwards to learn about internship opportunities in HR. One thing lead to another, and I ended up landing an internship in Talent Management at Bertelsmann’s corporate headquarters. This internship turned into a job offer, and now I am an Associate in Corporate Management Development, focusing on university relations and employer branding.
My first day of work was actually coming to HHL to do a company presentation! Talk about full circle!”

"When starting my studies at HHL my career objective was to work in a consulting company. During the Career Orientation workshop I evaluated my qualifications, interests and values and based on that, I explored ideas about my future career. Not only my passion for consulting was strongly confirmed during the workshop, but another unexpected career path was identified as well: being an entrepreneur.
Ultimately, my focuses are now defined and next steps will be made with a lot more confidence."
Robin Jung, Germany
"The career guidance of HHL's Career Development team is a great service for the students and alumni. Having worked in different jobs or even different companies for several years, one often questions oneself whether the current job is really the work that is fulfilling and inspiring. I made use of the career services at HHL and applied the results in my career planning. The approach of Martina Beermann helped me to strongly focus on my own interests and to use them as the basis for my further professional development."
