How did you decide to take an intern from MUDEC and in what area did your intern work?

We decided to take an intern from the Luxembourg Digital Innovation program because as a global business, it is important for Talkwalker to source talent globally. We also think that if the collaboration is successful, that it might open up permanent employment opportunities in our global offices for interns who have been successful in our home office in Luxembourg. We are still looking to recruit 50+ people by the end of the year!

Although COVID-19 cut the semester short, how did taking an intern help your business and what would you say to other companies that might be interested in the program?

We hosted Thu Truong and this is what her line manager said: “I had the chance to host Thu for a design internship in the first half of 2020. During that time, she helped with the day-to-day work of the Talkwalker design team (document design, creation of campaign visual assets, etc.), and contributed to our ongoing rebranding process. I was happy with Thu's work and dedication during her internship, and recommend her to others looking for a talented designer in the making.
