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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

School period 1 – Germany

Hi everybody, Maybe you already read the other posts and you know that we, the new IBT’s, went to Germany in our first school period. If not, don’t worry. 😊 To experience the retail business at BESTSELLER we had been sent to Germany to actually work in a shop. I had been so happy when I knew that I will be in Berlin! I loooove […]

Start of an exciting new chapter

Hello future IBT applicants 😊   I am Jack from Ireland and I am writing to give you a small idea of my first two weeks as an IBT.   So, I arrived in Denmark a few days before the course began with my parents. We flew to Copenhagen and had an amazing trip from there to Brande, where we got to see some beautiful […]

The Danish HYGGE😊

The Danish HYGGE😊

Why I found it relevant trying to explain hygge, is because, for my fellow new IBTs coming to a whole new country and culture, feeling good is important, – because as I see it, feeling good makes you feel comfortable and hopefully home at some point – and who does not want to feel good and comfortable when you move to a new place in […]

Sometimes all these questions can be a bit overwhelming, especially when you’ve just left university and are forced to make a decision – yesterday. Below I am going to […]
