“Well.. you know how men are.. what did you expect?” – my friend, a man.
The Management Trainee programme at IKEA is the second most popular traineeprogram in Sweden! Last week the programme even received a price from Traineedagen. I’m so proud of my programme manager Cecilia!
The first spot was awarded to H&M, but considering how their stock is doing.. jk (I want my money back). Lets just say next year IKEA will be number 1 (we have no stocks).
I spent this sunny fall day with my colleague slash neighbor. We went touring the city with our bikes, drinking fine coffee, visiting different castles, walking in the forest and doing some light shopping. We’re spent after the trainee programme week, so it’s been so nice to clear our heads!
Programme week in Älmhult means massive amounts of coffee, reflection, learnings and a few drinks here and there! So much fun to see the trainees again!
We share everything, highs and lows. It’s a challenge for me to open up so fully to people. But trust is key and we truly value that here. I’m learning a lot by just listening to the other trainees, even more by also daring to share.
Just a simple 30 minute reflective exercise this morning helped me define a gut feeling I’ve had for the last few days. In turn this completely changed my idea of the future! To be decided what this new realization will lead to.
This week I was interviewed for an article in Ny Teknik, an engineering magazine in Sweden. I look forward to see the result! The article will also be featured in Armada Magazine, and I’m so looking forward to visiting the career fair, but this time as a representative!
No travels this weekend, instead I’ve been exploring my new city, Helsingborg! A little bit of shopping, drinks, friends and art exhibits.
I’ll be away next week, back to the heart of IKEA in Älmhult together with all the trainees. I’m really looking forward to meeting them again!
