Caroline is a Werkstudent, a German role similar to an intern, with the Operations department in Zoetis’ Berlin office. Caroline works 15 hours per week while she is studying full-time in pursuit of a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering and Business Management at the Technical University in Berlin.
Caroline found her position via an online posting. She interviewed with other companies, but chose Zoetis because of its culture. Specifically, because of our Zoetis Core Beliefs, including Our Colleagues Make the Difference. Two things stood out: she would be an equal member of the team and she would have the opportunity to work on real, meaningful projects. Her biggest contribution has been to help Zoetis publish new price lists to all its customers. Now that project is complete, she continues to work on data management projects and learn new skills in different departments.
“Zoetis has a great working environment. I get insights to all parts of the company such as customer service, finance, and logistics,” said Caroline. “I felt welcomed from the very beginning, and I can go to anyone for help or information.”
Caroline’s advisor is Thomas, Senior CRM Manager. Thomas said, “Caroline was responsible for all customer communications and validity checks on one of our team’s major projects. She displayed an ability to learn rapidly and adapt quickly to change, while producing high quality work. She sets a perfect example for our Core Belief that Our Colleagues Make the Difference.”
