Spring is coming

Spring is coming

Spring is coming! Finally! After a few cold months filled with darkness and rainy days it seems like the ‘trist’ Danish winter is finally over. I must admit, there are way worse winters out there than the Danish one, but I’m still glad it’s coming to an end. Even though not even the cold winter was able to spoil the daily joy of walking through […]

Stay excited!

  Hi All, We are now more than 6 months in the business and the time is just flying. Last week we came back from our School Period 2. During this school period we went to China to see how the whole supply chain is working and how every part from the value chain is connected. And honestly guys: it is an eye-opening experience and […]

THE SECRET OFFICE

THE SECRET OFFICE

THE SECRET OFFICE Once upon a time… there was a mysterious little place called Stilling. Close to the city of Aarhus but hidden behind the great Danish highways, you will find… a secret little BESTSELLER office 😉 This office belongs to the two brands VILA and OBJECT and is home to around 200 employees. One of these employees is me, Hanna, International Business Trainee in […]

One typical week in Brande

One typical week in Brande

I am one of the IBT’s who is living together with my fellow colleagues in the city of Brande. I will try to give you a small insight into our life here besides work and that there is actually some variation in different kinds of activities – especially when you are an active person. When it comes to nightlife, events or concerts that’s definitely something […]

Stationing in Amsterdam

Stationing in Amsterdam

Hi there! In my previous post I promised to write more about Brande. As things change and sometimes things change fast, instead of spending time in Brande I’ve been spending a lot of time in the Netherlands. As I work a lot within omnichannel (online and offline) it made a lot of sense for my department to send me for 2 months to Amsterdam to […]

A Very Happy New Year’s from India!

As we all get ready to ring in the new year tonight, it’s time to now reflect on the past year, and think about the things we would like to leave in the past and what we want to carry with us into 2019. The past year has been a whirlwind of activity for me which culminated in my move to Denmark. It’s incredible to […]

Christmas gathering in Brande

Christmas gathering in Brande

As a Dane I wanted to introduce my fellow IBTs to some Danish Christmas tradition and get them into the Danish Christmas vibe. Therefore, I arranged a Christmas gathering which included baking some Christmas cakes and making Christmas decorations. Christmas gathering is something many Danish family do, where they meet up and listing to some Christmas music, bake cakes and just enjoy each other company. […]

Starting in the departments

We have officially started working in the departments. So many mixed feelings for every new beginning. No matter how much you have prepared in advance, you are unsure of where to go and what to do, and who to talk to. The teams have given us a warm, friendly and a sincere welcome. During the first few days we had meetings within our teams, to […]

J-Dag

So if you are wondering what is to do in Denmark during November, well there is a celebration that you have probably never heard of but it’s surely becoming popular. It’s a celebration of Christmas beer in Denmark and you defiantly need to experience it. I heard people in the office saying that today was J-DAG in Denmark but what that really mean? So, J-Dag […]

My first retail experience – Berlin trip

Working in a store for the first time As probably many other posts have said, the whole IBT 2018 team went to Germany recently for our first ‘school trip’, and I was sent to Berlin to work in a Vero Moda store. Initially, this was really daunting to me – as a guy in finance, who has no retail experience whatsoever – to be placed […]
