What was the best thing about being part of the Wrist Acceleration Program?
If you dream about an exciting, rewarding, and meaningful career in a global business, Wrist Acceleration Program is the place to start. I enjoyed being a part of a company with such a global footprint, where I had the possibilities to get international experience, a steep learning curve with career acceleration focus, and a strong cross-functional network with my peers. Everyday, there were new exiting opportunities where I got to develop my skills and knowledge base. For me, it is extremely significant to be part of a business, where my thoughts and inputs are heard and that is what I experienced - and still experience - within Wrist. All doors were always open for me, and all my colleagues were engaged to help and share their experience, which I found very important. Today, I work as Global Tender Manager in .

Which expectations did you have for the Program – and were they met?
I expected a lot to be demanded of me, throughout the two years on the program. From day one, I was set targets and projects by my Managing Director. I spent 70% of my time ‘on the job’, learning about procurement, operations or sales. The other 30% was spent on direct projects I had been set, for example working with change management. I had responsibility in how I managed my time, but ultimately, I was expected to deliver on my objectives, which were discussed in quarterly appraisals. I was attracted to the graduate program, because I believed it would push me, educate me, and give me the best start in a business career – however, you must be prepared to work very hard for this.

How have you benefitted from the relations with your mentor from the executive team?
Having a mentor that I could reach out to was always a grateful thing for me. My mentor was - and still is - a great source of knowledge who helped me understand the business. What I have benefitted from is his support. There was a time I was eager to find a specific area to focus on. I wondered whether it should be procurement, sales, warehousing, or other functionalities. I was trying to find a way while I had limited or no experience that enabled me to work it out. In a talk with my mentor, he shared his own experience and let me know I didn't have to rush to something. It takes time to find what you are really interested in and what you can make your own contribution.
