Success Stories

Clara Pointner, BA Business & Management

Why did you decide to do an internship after graduating?

The main reason to do an internship between my bachelor's and master's degree was because I couldn’t decide which master’s degree to choose. That's why I wanted to gain work experience to find out in which area I would like to specialize.

How did you get the internship?

I had a lot of luck. I knew from the start that I wanted to go to Denmark. However, the search for a specific internship turned out to be extremely difficult. In Denmark, most of the internships are unpaid, which is hardly compatible with the high cost of living. Language skills were a further challenge, as many companies require at least a basic knowledge of Danish. In conversation with my fellow students about our internship plans, the “Austrian National Tourist Office” was mentioned among others. By chance, while doing my online research, I discovered the internship advertisement from Austria Tourism for their office in Copenhagen and I applied immediately. After a few weeks of waiting and a telephone interview, I got a positive reply only an hour and a half later and had the internship position I had longed for.
