Pearl Academy 2022 - Meet our trainees 

Screenshot 2022-12-05 at 11.25.50

For the past seven years, Pearl has employed recent graduates or people with some work experience in the Pearl Academy. During the trainee period, they are placed with customers, and get to experience what it is like to be a consultant.

In August, this year's program for ten new talents started and we have asked them some questions to get to know them better! Trainees have varied, exciting and educational days in an inclusive working environment.

Read about what Vilma, Magnus and Johanne say about the program.

How did you become a trainee in Pearl?
- I studied a master's degree in Business Administration at Linköping University and during the last semester I started thinking about what I wanted to work with after graduation. I wanted to work with finance, that was obvious, but I also had a desire to work with technology as it was a great interest I had. 


I then got in touch with Pearl Group through a portal for trainee programs and became immediately interested as the ad seemed to describe what I had been looking for in a role! 


What does an average workday at Pearl Group entail?
- As a trainee, I would say that no two working days are the same! One day we have presentation techniques and the other day we are on a course in Copenhagen and studying for certification!

What's the value of being a trainee here?
- Something very valuable about the trainee position is that theory is interspersed with practical tasks, which in my opinion provides the best possible training. In addition, you get a mentor who is supportive and available for questions throughout the period! 

What's the best thing about the job?
- The second-best thing about working at Pearl is that the focus is on my professional development. I get a lot of freedom and I also get to be involved and have a say in decisions that concerns me. There are open discussions and all ideas are welcome. 


The best thing about working at Pearl is their culture. Pearl arranges many social events and I get to meet and work with so many competent and enthusiastic people.

How did you become a trainee at Pearl Group?
- After finishing my master's degree, I was looking for new challenges, and preferably an exciting job in technology. The job advertisement for Pearl Academy appealed to me and it seemed like an exciting and growing company, and I therefore applied. After several interviews, a case assignment, and various tests, I was offered a position as a trainee which I accepted

What does an average workday at Pearl Group entail?
- The working day in Pearl is very varied! During the onboarding, the first two weeks we got to know the company, the other trainees, the systems, and we got all the necessary equipment. After that, we were sent to Copenhagen for SAP courses for two weeks, which was a very nice arena to get to know each other better. Since then, the days have varied in everything from reading to certifications to working with customers. Furthermore, much of the working time involves shadowing their mentor or other colleagues to see how they work and to learn as much as possible. 

 

What's the value of being a trainee here?
- First, I think it's valuable to be a trainee here because it's very educational. You get harder tasks and more responsibility the more you learn. In addition, you get daily follow-up, opportunity to take several certifications and you become part of a very nice working environment. 

What's the best thing about the job?
- I think the best thing about the job is the great and included working environment. I believe all colleagues is very helpful and wishes the best for each other. In addition, I really appreciate the great variety, where no two days are the same and you constantly encounter new tasks and issues.

How did you become a trainee at Pearl Group?

- I was in the middle of writing the exam and had just started my master's thesis when my colleagues from my studies asked if I had also secured a job after my studies. Everything else was put on the side and I began diligently looking for a job. On Finn.no, I came across an ad that stood out compared to others. If I ended up at Pearl Group, I would have the opportunity to learn about SAP and my field (Insight) in a good way without being thrown into it. Throughout the search process and interviews, I noticed that the people here want each other well and that they do well. It made the choice to start working here much easier. 

What does an average workday at Pearl Group entail?
 - Currently, I'm reading to the latest certification within BW. In addition, I am with a customer who has given me an incredibly fantastic opportunity to see how the system and processes work in practice. 

What's the value of being a trainee here?
- It is an educational environment where you can ask questions to everyone. Everyone has their field of knowledge that contributes with my own learning. The learning takes place through a practical approach where you have a close support both on your workload and on tasks while also it gives you theoretical learning by SAP's international certifications and literature.


What's the best thing about the job? 
- I learn something new every day! Whether it's through a theoretical aspect of Pearl/SAP/customers, the practical features or the people who work there; it's just as fascinating every time.
