Many companies acknowledge their interns by offering them jobs after their internships have ended.
Now students can also acknowledge their internship company by nominating the company for KEA Internship of the Year.
Students, who have been interning in the fall of 2016 or spring of 2017 kan nominate their internship company. These students will receive a link in their KEA-mail with an application form.
The competition ends on March 15th. The five nominees will be announced on April 10th, and the winner of KEA Internship of the Year 2017 will be announced on April 24th.
Last year an overwhelming amount of students nominated their internship to be selected as KEA’s best. In the end, the winner was JENSEN Denmark, nominated by Mads Nilsson. Here are some of the things the jury noted:
“Mads has had a lot of responsibility and was involved in strategic decisions and processes that testifies that his professional standards has been taken seriously. A large company of 500 employees who manage to create a culture and structure as inclusive and flat as is the case with JENSEN is quite impressive. JENSEN has shown that they will go to great lengths to create an exciting internship where the trainee is not only challenged, but also obtains a lot of new knowledge and receives great responsibility. The internship is anchored at the management level in the company which gives the trainee a sense of importance and actually making a difference.”
The winner of KEA Internship of the Year 2017 will proceed to the national competition on May 16th at the Opera House in Copenhagen.
