Why did you chose P&G for an internship in Finance?
After 2 years of apprenticeship in Finance in Paris, I was looking for a challenging end of study internship with long-term growth opportunities. I met a Finance Manager from P&G Geneva at a Career Fair in my school who convinced me that an internship in Finance in P&G Switzerland was what I was looking for. I applied on the website, successfully passed the recruiting process, and after 6 months of internship, I was offered a full-time position as a Financial Analyst! After 1 year in the company, I feel like I am in the perfect place to learn and give my best.
What do you like the most about working at P&G?
If I had to pick one single thing, I would say that I love this incredible energy that is put in place to take you as far as you want to go. Even as an intern or as a new hire in P&G, you can really make a difference. You are the owner of your projects but also of your career. You are responsible, yes, but you are never alone: manager, multifunctional teams, mentor, new hire community, trainings, skill development programs…everything is here to help you perform at your peak and further grow. Especially in Finance where you are already given big scopes and strategic roles from the beginning, it is key to feel well surrounded and supported to build skills and reinforce your confidence.
One advice for the recruiting process?
Just show what you are passionate about. All the people I have met so far in P&G are incredibly smart people but they are also great personalities you will really enjoy working and spending time with.
