Pashalia Mandratzi, intern

“I wanted to join a relatively large group that offered prospects for my future after my internship. It was clear from the start that MAHLE was the right choice: from the super-quick, well-organized application phase through the warm welcome by the team to the close supervision during my internship. I have a lot of freedom in how I approach my tasks, I can contribute my own ideas, and I’m always taken seriously. The conditions are ideal for my professional and personal development.”
