Meet our People: Alex, HR Working Student


Meet-Our-People-Alex-1-300x300Alexandra is an Intern at our HR department in Munich, Germany. She joined Zuken in September 2022 to discover where her career path can take her. We recently sat down for coffee together and she shared her story.

Just Getting Started

I’m on the brink of completing my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Applied Sciences Landshut, and come summer time – graduation! My interest in business was sparked at a young age thanks to the inspirational guidance provided by my mother. Now with graduation around the corner, I’m exploring different opportunities in student jobs and internships as a way to discover where my career path can take me. My semester abroad in Finland got me interested in learning more about the field of Human Resources.

My Internship at Zuken

As a working student in the HR department, I support the entire HR team. Not only can I assist with contracts and references, but also get involved in recruiting processes! It’s really awesome discovering all that Human Resources has to offer — there’re always new exciting projects waiting around every corner!

The flexible hours for interns are designed to fit around any hectic university schedule so whether there are periods where you want more or less worktime – it’s never an issue! I am currently choosing two regular days to work plus extras during the semester breaks – enabling me to get a great balance of both free time and productivity.

The Zuken Team

At Zuken, personal development and respect are top priorities – no matter your seniority. Everyone is appreciated for their individual contribution to creating a harmonious workplace where cooperation flows naturally!

Working at Zuken is like being part of one big family! I felt right at home from my very first day. Everyone’s got each other’s backs when there are lots of things to do, plus during induction, everyone provided excellent support too – it made for an easy transition. My supervisor has become a mentor for me as she passes on her experience whilst teaching me new skills along the way.

Traveling, keeping Traditions alive, and More!

I love making the most of my downtime! From playing tennis, skiing, and hiking to going for leisurely walks – you can always find me outdoors. I also love to travel and I am involved with our local club “Goldacher Madeln” which is a great way for me to help keep Bavarian traditions alive by organizing festivities or taking part in cultural events throughout our area.
