So, here we are: my last day as a praktikant. But it’s not the last you’ll see of me. As I’ve mentioned, I’m thrilled to be staying on as an employee starting from Monday.
Over the last twelve weeks, I’ve chipped in with everything from photo editing and copywriting to strategy advising and public speaking. But what has made my praktik really special is the way I felt like part of the team from the very beginning, trusted to give input and take initiative. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I am really proud to be kicking off my Swedish career as a “Salgadinio”.
Like a few others in the office, I’ve been laid low by the first round of winter illnesses this week, so I don’t have much to report. Still, I wanted to use this short blog to say thank you to everyone in the team for making me feel so welcome, and for taking a chance on me! It’s not easy starting from scratch in a foreign country, and it can take a while to get that first opportunity to prove your worth. I’m so pleased that for me, that opportunity came from Salgado. I’m looking forward to seeing how the next chapter unfolds!
Until next time…
