This 2 months in the company, allowed me to improve different skills like communication, persuasion and analytical vision, but also taught me how to deal with new tasks. Furthermore, everybody that I’ve met and the environment were incredible, they made this internship even better than I could imagine.”

“Welcome is a really warm company. This September and October, I had the chance to work there and meet a lot of nice people in a global environment together with other interns. I participated in the creation of a new department for Vacation Rentals and that was a really cool experience, since I saw how we were building some of the tasks from scratch. I would really recommend Welcome if you’re willing to live in a cool and opened-minded environment.”

An internship at Welcome Pickups is the perfect way to advance your professional career. The combination of a startup culture along with the dynamics of a rapidly growing company allow you to learn optimally from your experience. As a Junior Business Development Associate, I gained first-hand experience in managing entire sales funnels and streamlining processes. Welcome’s open and supportive company culture gives you the opportunity to adapt quickly and develop yourself professionally as well as personally.
