The day we have all been looking forward to – arriving in Denmark

The past four months have been the longest four months I have ever experienced.

And I […]

Very first Reunion in Brande

Very first Reunion in Brande

Hej guys! It’s me – one of the favored few for the International Business Trainee Program 2018 at BESTSELLER. As you might know our journey started with the try-outs in Brande in the end of May and I can tell you being back at Campus three month later felt a little weird but 100% right. Not only because of the fact that it was exactly […]

Arriving and getting settled

Hello, good people of the internet! I’m Oliver, I joined the IBT team in Finance, and I’ll be writing some blog posts from the heart of Aarhus. Meeting the team (again) This Monday we all arrived for the first time in Aarhus (and some in Brande) – and while some people had really long flights, I only had a 2-hour drive.

China Trip : Partying while working

Hi readers, So one of the most importantly interesting part of our IBT program has been the China Trip in April 2018, at least for me. It is because I got a big picture of the business, got knowledge of the entire value chain and also understand the whole manufacturing process. But during this busy intensive-learning trip, a little fun here n there never hurts […]

No two days are the same when you work for retail.

Do you really want to know what retail is all about? Well let’s just that no two days can look the same when you are working for retail. I have always been inclined towards this field and it really fascinates me how these stores attract us towards them and how we end up buying more than what we need or want. So, I have decided […]

International #foodlovers

International #foodlovers

Well, for being an IBT you must be attracted by everything that has the word international in it’s title.  We are already recognized as international people as I said, we are also attracted by international food.             So, last Sunday Rasheed had the brilliant idea of having an “international picnic potluck”. That consisted in each of us cooking our traditional […]

New Year, New Friends

So it’s been about four and a half months in the program and we’ve revently come back from our Christmas holiday. And for me that was a much needed break – especially because it was summer back home in sunny Australia! Of course the freezing cold and dark winters are tough in Denmark but there are also some unexpected challenges that took me by surprise. […]
