“Life of an SAP Intern” with Connor Mahon, SAP UKI
Article originally authored by Connor Mahon, Communications Assistant, SAP UKI.
I am Connor Mahon and I am an intern within the communications department of SAP UKI. As part of the intern programme, I am one of thirty university undergraduates taken into varied departments to start our careers in our chosen fields.
Within SAP there is a focus on Early Talent; anyone under 30 in the business, including the interns and members of the Academy For Sales. Being an intern at SAP is not like other internships where you would be expected to only do administrative work, when you enter the business you are entering as a full-fledged employee with your own responsibilities and tasks. This what really appealed to me personally.
As interns, we are there to support our teams allowing business function to run effectively. How we support our teams varies from role to role but the common theme between all of us is investment from our managers. Our managers and the wider team are on hand to make sure that we develop not only professionally but in a personal sense as well.
Working at SAP equips you with the core skills to kick-start your career and gives you a deeper insight into specialisms such as sales, marketing and operations.
SAP truly is a great place to work, from the support you receive to the sense of community among the interns. Some people get the chance to travel, plan events and even interact with Global Board Members. On a personal note, I have been able to interact with media from all over the world including Japan and I even met footballer Phil Neville at a recent event. During the short time I have worked at SAP, I feel as if I have already strengthened my skills as well as developed new ones and I know the rest of my time within in the business will only serve to augment my skills and abilities.
