Meet Gustav, who shares his journey from internship to employment at SAVR
Make the most of your internship
I applied for an internship at SAVR partly to learn more about the industry, but also to join their mission to make it cheaper and easier for people to start investing.
An important part of an internship is gaining experience and learning different things, therefore it is important to choose a company where you are given the right prerequisites. Since SAVR is a small company, I had the opportunity to be involved in many different areas. For example, I worked a lot with sustainability and how we can make it easier to invest sustainably. The financial industry can be a big part of the solution and a lot happens within the area.
SAVR is a company that dares to do things in a different way. If you are passionate about savings and have new ideas, this might be the place for your internship.
Gustav's advice for a successful internship
Ask a lot of questions. You are not expected to know everything. What is required, however, is to ask questions.
Dare to take the initiative. An internship is as much a way for you to try a workplace as it is for a company to get to know you. Therefore, dare to ask to be part of a specific project or have a meeting with a specific person. It just shows that you are committed.
Make sure to have follow-up meetings. In the beginning, it is difficult to know exactly what the requirements are. Therefore it is important to have ongoing follow-ups with your mentor. It makes you feel less insecure, and the result will be better in the end.
From internship to job-offer
