150 Proximus internships per year. Why do we think this is so important?

In the scope of our #inspire2022 strategy, we want to attract the best talents to help shape Europe's digital future. Interns are part of this strategy. After all they are our colleagues and customers of tomorrow!

Does it scare you a little to trade your school campus for the workplace? All the new experiences you'll acquire here will make it well worth stepping outside your comfort zone. You will have the opportunity to put into practice the theory you have learned and further improve your skills.

My internship at Proximus was one of the best decisions I made during my studies. I got a preview of the way I can put classroom theory into practice. I strongly recommend this experience to every student who is still looking for an internship (and a workplace with a beautiful view over Brussels).

What's in it for you? For us? For everyone?

Interns are really appreciated here at Proximus. Your new team will welcome you with open arms because you will be helping them to realize both small and large projects.

As an HR Communication intern at Proximus, I learned from day one. I was warmly welcomed by the whole HR group and they immediately made me feel part of the team. For example, they spent a whole week introducing me to all colleagues and I was even allowed to attend some important meetings. I feel very appreciated and notice that my contributions as an intern also have a real added value for Proximus.

Not only can you help us think outside the box, but you also bring a breath of fresh air and a more dynamic vibe to the workplace. Just as interns are a boost to the team, the same is true the other way around. You will undoubtedly learn a lot from your more experienced colleagues.

Interns still have that sparkling outlook on things. They are eager to learn and look forward to discovering or accomplishing a lot. It is another reminder for us of how exciting our job is supposed to be.

What is the role of your internship coach?

An internship mentor is there to coach you and make sure you really learn something. But exchanging experiences is also important. That means, listening to how you look at things.

My mentor means a lot to me. Thanks to him, I learn a lot every day and I can ask for help at any time of the day if something doesn't work out! The support I get from him motivates me to give my best day in, day out.
Your coach will give you regular feedback to grow and evolve even more.

You are not only a manager, but also a coach. My role is to give interns the necessary context and explanation when assigning certain tasks. In this way, they become aware that they are part of a bigger picture and they start to see their place in the whole. And so they also learn to better understand the way a company operates.
