Working at TechnoAlpin: interviews with interns

There are several interns at TechnoAlpin every year who work in various departments. There are nine interns at the moment.

Why did you decide to do an internship at TechnoAlpin and what do you like most about the company?

I am studying Economics and Management at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. Marketing is one of my favorite subjects and TechnoAlpin is one of the best companies in Bolzano. What is more, most of the employees speak German whereas my native language is Italian. Therefore I can practice and improve my foreign language skills at the same time. These are the reasons why I decided to do an internship here. What I really like is the atmosphere here. There is a great team spirit and everyone is always willing to help you if you have a problem. Another big plus is that the average age at TechnoAlpin is very low.
