Internship Experience of Maarten Bakker

Curious about the Internship Experience of Maarten Bakker? Read below about Maarten’s thoughts.


1: How did you generally experience your internship at Convident?

I wrote my thesis for the Entrepreneurship & Retail Management course at Convident. Rick and Rutger had a clear assignment, to write a 5-year business plan. I really liked the open-door policy at Convident. This certainly contributed to the result. I contributed to the sales and account management of the organization and I was able to achieve great results. In addition, I think there is a good atmosphere in the office!

2: Did you feel accepted by our colleagues (work atmosphere)?

Yes, I felt very comfortable in those 5 months that I was there (daily). Colleagues were quick to answer questions if you had any questions and they took the time to explain things. The atmosphere was good and that was also noticeable during the team hang-outs and Friday afternoon drinks.

3: Would you recommend future interns to do their internship at Convident?

I can wholeheartedly recommend Convident for future interns. Rick and Rutger give you a lot of freedom and treat you like a full-fledged colleague. In addition, I was well guided during the writing of the business plan.


4: How would you rate your internship at Convident and why?

An 8. I was able to learn a lot and had a great time!

5: What will you take with you from Convident for the rest of your carrier?

I learned here that a smaller company suits me more than a large company. I like doing business myself and if you can graduate at a small company then I find it interesting to see how different departments work together. This creates a total picture of a company.
