“I am proud that I can do my internship at a leading company.”

I came to the Netherlands three years ago to study ICT & Business at the Fontys Hogeschool here in Eindhoven. I chose the Netherlands because they have an interactive and student-centered teaching style where I can develop my own opinion, have an open mind and increase my international orientation. Overall, it is a really good experience in challenging myself to be independent by studying overseas in the country that is thousands of miles away from my homeland.

Now, I am a proud intern at the Sales Support Department which is part of PACCAR Parts Europe. My main assignment during this Internship is to find a new Business Intelligence tool to do some reporting that can be used by the company in the near future.

Although I miss my family and friends in Indonesia, it doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy living and working in the Netherlands. Moving to the country that is thousands of miles away from home is not that easy, it was difficult at the beginning, but I managed to settle myself and make some connections. The friendly colleagues and environment contribute to that as well. 

Despite the fact that DAF is a leading company in the European Market, DAF also has its international and dynamic environment where I was eager to gain experience within its organization. Since I wasn’t really familiar with the automotive industry at the beginning, I thought that it would be good if I could just jump in and acquire new experience in the fields that I haven’t yet tackled before.

Without any doubts, I am really proud that I have the chance to work at this leading and successful European automotive company. DAF gives me the opportunity to broaden my experiences and develop myself on a professional and personal level.
