the deadline for application is approaching and thus I thought it might be good to share another experience with you about what it can also mean to be a Graduate at Novo Nordisk. Of course we are mostly working on our daily tasks but once in a while we get the chance to participate in different recruiting activities what always is a lot of fun!
Having been a CEMS student myself, I was thrilled by the opportunity to be responsible for organizing the CEMS Skill Seminar that takes place every year in Budapest. What I found particularly interesting was to be part of an event that connects the work I am currently doing in the ‘Innovation Strategy Office’ with the possibility to be a sort of an ambassador for Novo Nordisk, representing our company and its values. Thus, when I was offered the possibility I just had to say ‘yes’!
The topic of the workshop had been defined as ‘Changing Dynamics in the Pharmaceutical Industry’ and we agreed to work with the concept of the ‘Rule of Halves’ and to ask the students to come up with innovative solutions of how to overcome the challenges implied in treating diabetes. Since my time as a student is not long ago and I can perfectly remember how it is to be a student, I was a bit nervous of standing in front of the students and thought: Will they find our workshop interesting? Will I be able to answer their questions? How to best represent Novo Nordisk?
In the end, everything worked out fine and in the team we delivered a great workshop and received very positive feedback from the students. I realized that in the end, all comes down to being authentic and being yourself and I remembered that this was actually what I liked most when I got to know Novo Nordisk the first time.
Good luck to all of you for the last days of application!
See you soon,
