The deadline for applying for the graduate programme is getting nearer and at this moment you are perhaps considering whether to apply or not?
In order to help you I will discuss in coming blog posts different aspects of the process:
Part 1: Is Novo Nordisk and the graduate programme an option for you?
Part 2: If you choose to apply what advice can I give you?
Part 3: If you are chosen to take part in the Graduate Recruitment Centre (GRC) in Copenhagen, Denmark on 29–30 March 2011 how can I guide you a little?
Part 4: If you get through – as some of you will – an exciting career fast track is to be started.
Part 1: Is this my career path?
A new year 2011 is just around the corner and with that come new experiences and challenges. For me the first part of my first rotation in Market Access in Spain is coming to an end, and new challenges in marketing are on the horizon.
Some of you are perhaps right now facing a situation where a new path is to be chosen. I remember the thoughts that I had when about to finish my studies. Where do I see myself fit in? In which industry and within which area do I want to work? What is important for me as a person? What can I offer and what can the different companies offer me?
There are so many things to consider. What is success for me? Is success and having high ambition the most important thing for me? Or are there other values which are more important or equally so? For me being successful is significant, however not at the expense of repressing personal values. That is why Novo Nordisk and the graduate programme was the perfect fit for me! Being part of Novo Nordisk enables me to combine my ambition with a company that has high values consistent with my own.
In the following interview with me you can read further about why Novo Nordisk was my first choice and why it now has become my career path:
I challenge you all to consider what is important for you when it comes to choosing the company where you want to work. If Novo Nordisk is a goal, then consider how YOU can obtain being part of the graduate programme. There are many ways to get there. Find your own way – go for it – and apply!
