“I appreciated the chance to rotate through and to experience new positions in different departments; I also enjoyed the business training that we get for professional growth and the chance to move to another country, learn a new culture and language.”

Mack, Build the Future edition #8 (2019)
 

“My whole experience has been extraordinary! I was able to work in a home country for one year and being sent to another country for an assignment. To me it is a once-in-a life opportunity.”

Manuel, Build the Future edition #8 (2019)

 

“Only once I joined the graduate program, I did realize the international aspect not only comes in the form of moving abroad and living amongst a new culture, but also working day to day with people of different nationalities in person and virtually."

Renee, Build the Future edition #6 (2017)

 

«I am still in the very early phase of the graduate program, but I think that the job rotation and the opportunity to work abroad are some of the best features of this program. Other than this, what I really like about the company is that the terms like "Diversity and Inclusion", "Gender Equality", "Sustainability" are not just used here in theory, I can see the actual efforts from the management to achieve them, which makes me proud of being a part of the Prysmian Group family.»
Charanjit Singh Jolly, from Hungary, Build the Future, edition 2022
