“After interning with a large MNC as well as an SME, I felt like I had a good grasp and understanding of the corporate world. Once I read the description of the EI International Graduate Programme, I realised that there was a completely other element and possibility that I had overlooked. The EI programme is one of a kind – it was the only one that I came across which enabled me to use the language that I had learned in university, gain further experience abroad and to work with Irish companies across a wide range of sectors. In less than a year, I have helped numerous indigenous Irish firms with their strategy in relation to the DACH Region, travelled to industry leading tradeshows such as CeBit and Electronica, helped organise a trade visit to Germany with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny and much much more.

When I graduated from university I was hungry for responsibility and a challenge. The EI graduate programme has certainly lived up to all of my expectations so far and there is no doubt that it was the perfect choice for me.”
