Master Sustainable Marketing & Leadership

Rabea, you’re currently doing an internship at Evonik – what activities are you involved in?

Right now I’m doing an internship with HR. I take care of the company’s internal ‘Young Spirit’ initiative, for example, and liaise with the Enactus student network, which both receive support from Evonik. I’m also responsible for general activities in the area of organization, since I also completed an office administration apprenticeship at Evonik before starting my degree.

You’re studying for a master’s in Sustainable Marketing & Leadership. Why did you decide to apply for an internship at Evonik?

It actually came about through the subject of my Master’s thesis, which I wrote on the topic of sustainability. I wanted to find out more about Evonik’s activities and I received a lot of input through talking with staff at Corporate Social Responsibility. I found it incredibly interesting to hear the company’s view on the topic and the practical experience was very helpful! These impressions played a role in my decision to apply for an internship at Evonik. I felt that the company really actively engages in the topic of sustainability instead of just talking about it.

Wenn Du Freunden und Familie Evonik in einem Tweet beschreiben müsstest, welchem Aspekt würdest du die 280 Zeichen widmen?

Das wäre ganz klar der Aspekt Internationalität. Ich finde es toll, in einem internationalen Unternehmen tätig zu sein. Dies gibt einem die Chance, verschiedene Kulturen kennenzulernen und mit den Mitarbeitern aus aller Welt in Kontakt zu treten und zu kommunizieren. Und es ist spannend zu erleben, wie andere Länder das Thema Nachhaltigkeit beleuchten und wie es zunehmender wichtig wird.

If you had to describe Evonik to your family and friends in a tweet, which aspect would you devote your 230 characters to?

That would definitely have to be internationality. I find it great to work in an international company. It gives you the opportunity to get to know different cultures and to communicate and come into contact with members of staff from all around the world. And it’s exciting to see how other countries highlight the topic of sustainability and how it is becoming more and more important.

What has surprised you most about Evonik as an employer?

There’s such a great team spirit here, even though we often work across geographical boundaries! As an intern I have lots of opportunities to try things out and I always receive support. And one thing that surprises me over and over again is just how many end products contain products from Evonik.

What would be your message to students who are looking for an employer?

Don’t be afraid to try something new! Ask lots of questions and find out what’s important for you in an employer.
