How did you become a trainee in Pearl?

- I was contacted on LinkedIn regarding a position at Pearl, and after a fun and challenging process, I got the offer to start as one of the trainees in the 2022 cohort.

What does an average workday at Pearl entail?
- In the first weeks of the trainee program, we had a very exciting program with, among other things, several presentations to get to know both Pearl and the people who work in Pearl, various activities to get to know the other trainees, as well as an introductory course in SAP that was held in Copenhagen. I am currently 100% on a project in Sweden, which is both hectic and fun. I get to work a lot in SAP but also gain great experience by working in a large project, and as a consultant.  

What's the value of being a trainee here?
- You really get to challenge yourself in many different ways, while having a good network around you. Both the mentorship and that we are starting together with other trainees contribute to a very good environment, both professionally and socially! 

What is the best thing about the job?
- I would say the best thing about the job so far is the people and the development opportunities. Both theoretically through various courses and certifications, but also in practice with the customer. A bonus is also that Pearl has very many exciting customers!
